Bucs receive fall All-Conference honors

Bartlett Yancey had over 20 of its student-athletes named All-Conference by the Mid-State Conference in various fall sports. The list includes standout Bucs football running back Jacob Scales (left), volleyball player Lanie Ouzts (middle), and tennis player Norah Massey (right). 

The Mid-State Conference announced its fall All-Conference teams earlier this month, and Bartlett Yancey was well-represented across the sports of football, volleyball, soccer, and women’s tennis. 

In football, the Bucs had a total of six players named first-team All-Conference, including running back Jacob Scales, wide receiver Malachi Gwynn, lineman Miles Oliver, lineman Miles Jefferson, linebacker Keith Mims, and multi-purpose athlete Malik Brogdon. Six other BYHS players - Craig Graves, Tyler Jefferson, Chase Johnson, Ahmad Byrd, Justin Mitil, and Dylan Wall - were named Honorable Mention All-Conference by the league. 

In volleyball, the Bucs had two standouts - sisters Ashton and Lanie Ouzts - named to the first-team All-Mid-State squad. Three others - Elizabeth Proctor, Keelie Chattin, and Emma Jones - were named Honorable Mention. 

In women’s tennis, Norah Massey and Kaleb Stephens were both named first-team All League, while Sarah Kate Watlington was named Honorable Mention. In addition, the BYHS girl’s tennis squad was named co-winner of the team Sportsmanship Award alongside conference rival Cummings. 

In boy’s soccer, James Simon was named first-team All-Mid-State Conference for the Bucs, while also being named Goalkeeper of the Year. The Bucs were also recognized by the Mid-State Conference by receiving the league’s Sportsmanship Award.
