Girls basketball player of the year: Kaloni Pryear, Washington High
The four-year starter (and captain) capped her career off with 907-career points and led Washington to its 26th district title.
Pryear scored in double figures in 18-of-26 games for the Wildcats, averaging 12 points, 3 steals, 2.7 rebounds and two assists, per game.
In District 1-6A play, Pryear boosted her scoring, averaging 15 ppg in 1-6A competition despite frequently battling box-and-1 defenses.
Pryear will stay local when it comes to playing at the next level, and has committed to sign with Pensacola State.
Girls basketball coach of the year: Ieasha Stallworth-Ridgeway, West Florida
After two seasons with the Jaguars, Stallworth-Ridgeway has led West Florida to consecutive district titles — a feat that no other area (girls basketball) team can currently boast.
In the two seasons prior to Stallworth-Ridgeway’s arrival, the Jaguars combined for three total wins.
This season, the Jags took just one loss at home during the regular season.
West Florida finished District 1-4A play undefeated, and topped local teams in higher classifications (Tate, Pace, Escambia) and kept it close in a 10-point loss to 2015 state champ Pine Forest.
Boys basketball player of the year: Jahmiah Simmons, Pace
After transferring to Pace before his sophomore year, Simmons went on a tear during his time as a Patriot.
He averaged a double-double throughout his Pace career, putting up 15.7 points per game and 11.3 rebounds per game during his senior season.
Boys basketball coach of the year: Terrence Harris, Pensacola High
With just three seniors on the team, Harris led the Tigers to a third-consecutive District 1-6A title (undefeated in district play) and an appearance in the 6A state semifinals.
The Tigers concluded with just four losses in the winningest season during Harris’ seven-year tenure, and will return all nine players that saw playing time in PHS’ state semifinal loss.
Girls soccer player of the year: Emily Madril, Navarre
The reigning Miss Soccer for the state of Florida led the Pensacola area in both goals and assists.
She finished her junior season with 40 goals and 24 assists to help lead Navarre back to the state playoffs after going to the state tournament in 2015.
Girls soccer coach of the year: Ryan Davenport, Gulf Breeze
Davenport and the Dolphins took their successes one step further than last season, reaching the regional finals after a thrilling overtime win in the semis.
Gulf Breeze fell in the third round of the postseason to Ponte Vedra, which ultimately lost in the 5A state finals.
Davenport and Gulf Breeze left no questions unanswered in district play, winning the district championship with an 8-0 victory over Choctaw.
Boys soccer player of the year: Billy Harris, Catholic
One of the most consistent forwards in the area, Harris finished his senior season with 19 goals in 18 games, and finished his Catholic career with 49 goals and 24 assists.
He was selected to represent the Panhandle in the FACA All-Star game in Sebring.
Boys soccer coach of the year: Felipe Lawall, Washington High
With two senior starters (five total on team) Lawall led the youthful Wildcats to a District 1-4A runner up and a 3-2 win over Gainesville High in the regional quarterfinals.
Washington’s appearance in the regional semis marks the deepest postseason run of any area boys soccer team.
Girls weightlifter of the year: Olivia Brahms, Navarre
Brahms capped off her senior season and added to Navarre’s fabulous legacy as she was crowned 2A state champion in the 169-pound class.
Brahms totaled 380 pounds with her lifts as Navarre secured its third state title in four years.
Boys wrestler of the year: Gaven McAnally, Tate
“Aggie Mac” pinned his opponent for fifth place in the 2A state championships in the 220-pound division.
McAnally finished runner-up at the 1-2A regional championships.
Tate finished 14-of-28 as a team at states.
