Mustangs Land 8 on All-Region Team

February 08, 2018

Wednesday afternoon, eight Rancho Solano Prep Boys Basketball players were named to the 2A All-Metro East Region team. Senior Nikc Jackson was named Region Player of the Year after averaging 15.5ppg/8.2rpg/2bpg/1.7apg. Jackson led the region in scoring, rebounding, and field goal percentage (59%) this season and was widely regarded as the most dominant and versatile player in the region. Sophomore Tyson Legner was named Defensive Player of the Year after averaging 7ppg/3.3apg/1.7spg and leading the team in deflections. Legner’s defensive impact was well respected throughout the region as he is regularly given the difficult task of defending the opponent’s best player. First Team honors also went to Sophomore Kiimani Holt (14.3ppg/5rpg/2apg), Senior Caden Hoffman (9.1ppg/4.5apg/4rpg) and Legner. Sophomore Hunter Ruck was named to the Second Team, while the trio of Senior Elijah Simmons, Junior John Gorgol, and Freshman Brett Hardt Jr. were all named Honorable Mention. In addition to the player honors, Head Coach Aaron Trigg was named Coach of the Year. This year’s team has set a school record for wins in a season and is ranked #4 in 2A by AZPreps365, #2 by MaxPreps, and #1 by AZ Central. Currently 22-5 (10-0), the Mustangs will face Horizon Honors in the Metro East Region Championship game Friday, Feb. 9 at 7:30pm at Rancho Solano.
