Jett Bramon takes a jump shot against Burnet.

Jett Bramon was named Newcomer of the Year for boys' basketball District 27-4A. The Badger sophomore saw some varsity action last year -- but less than a full season -- making him eligible for the Newcomer award this year.

Bramon averaged 13.5 points per game this season and nearly 5.5 rebounds per game.

Sophomore Nate Borchardt and junior Mike Murray were named first-team all-district. Colton Linville, a senior, made the second team. Sophomore Quinn Pace and Jacob Hogeda, a junior, received honorable mention. Pace and Linville also were academic all-district players. 

Liberty Hill, the district's last team standing in the playoffs lost to Boerne in the third round.  


Girls' all-district awards were released after Salado lost to Fredericksburg in the girls’ 4A Region IV basketball finals last weekend. Lampasas players named to the team include Newcomer of the Year Payton Tatum; first-team selections Abby Martin and Juliana Dwamena; and second-team picks Addison McDonald and Jessica Ball. Cobie Chandler and Taylor Allen received honorable mention. Academic all-district honors went to McDonald, Ball, Allen, Dwamena, Chandler and Laurcy Bender.
