Kaylee Van Norman, a sophomore from Brandon, stopped six of seven shots while playing with a broken hand to pick up a pair of victories. She stopped all three shots in a 4-0 shutout at Southwest, then three of four in a 2-1 against Meridian which clinched a playoff spot.
Mike Smith, a freshman linebacker from Ridgeland, piled up 13 total tackles to lead No. 1 Gulf Coast's dominating defensive effort in a 25-5 win at No. 19 East Central. He broke up a pass as the Bulldogs held the Warriors to under 100 yards rushing and passing.
