Their efforts were key to the team’s success, which is why Parchmont has been named The Brownsville Herald’s All-Metro Defensive Player of the Year and Esquivel has been tabbed Newcomer of the Year.

In addition to 10.2 points, Parchmont blanketed opponents and racked up 6.1 steals, pulled down 6.1 rebounds and dished 4.2 assists per game on her way to being named the District 32-5A co-defensive player of the year.
