After a second-straight District 30-3A title, the Jourdanton Squaws saw their year reflected in the All-District accolades released last week — and all 11 Squaws took home some sort of honor.

A year after being named the Offensive MVP, senior point guard Vanessa Vacca was named the District MVP after leading Jourdanton in all but two statistical categor.

Vacca, who scored a team-second best 236 points this season, picked up 96 rebounds, 67 steals and 71 assists in district play to help the Squaws to a 10-0 mark in district and 18-10 mark overall.
