Several District 12-AAA standouts and a pair of Nolensville players highlighted Williamson County’s representation in the Tennessee Sports Writers Association All-State teams, released Tuesday.

Brentwood juniors Shaye Eggleston and Haley Sanders, along with senior Piper Drazek all were named to Class AAA All-State team after leading the Lady Bruins to a record-setting seventh consecutive state championship at the end of October.

Eggleston, who was named the Gatorade Player of the Year for Tennessee Monday, led Brentwood in most offensive statistical categories. Drazek was the floor general and racked up 1,746 assists in 2019, while Sanders led the team with 471 digs.

The Brentwood trio were joined by Franklin senior Jillian Amsler and Ravenwood senior Carly Cooper on the All-State team from Class AAA.

Amsler closed with a team-high 358 kills and was second in digs (198) and aces (48) for the Lady Rebels. Cooper set 792 assists, had 382 digs and served 72 aces to lead the Lady Raptors, which fell to eventual runner-up Houston at the state tournament.

Nolensville, which also won a state title in Class AA, had two representatives honored in sophomore Avery Young and junior Lauren Starcke.

Young led the Lady Knights with 381 kills, while Starcke scooped up 717 digs.
