Jordan Stevens was a multi-year fixture in the starting lineup for a West County girls basketball team that recently captured its first regular-season conference championship since the 2011-12 season.

Her efforts in the classroom have been recognized as one of seven MAAA Conference players to earn MBCA Academic All-State designation.

Three members of the Farmington boys program also qualified for the award after the Knights claimed conference and district titles and reached the Class 4 state sectional round in a 25-3 season.

Forward Tycen Gray adds another prestigious honor after already landing on the athletic all-state team earlier this month. He leaves Farmington as its career leader in points and rebounds.

Teammates Ethan Buerck and Evan Burke likewise made the academic cut as reserves for the Knights.

Only seniors are eligible for the honor, and required criteria include a 3.25 GPA or better and composite ACT score of 27 or above.

Zach Haynes, a two-time all-state football player at Potosi, adds an academic accolade. Bryce Palmer of district champion Valle Catholic and Sam Stolzer of Ste. Genevieve also made the list.
