ATLANTA — A pair of Tift County basketball players have merited All-State honors.
Shakiria Chaney and Jatarion Warren were named All-State honorable mention by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a list that was revealed Friday.
Chaney averaged 16.4 points per game in 2020-21, helping lead the Lady Devils to a 13-3 record and their second consecutive Region 1-7A championship. A junior, Chaney is almost a certainty to join the 1,000 point club next season.
