Led by a brother and sister, some of the Tribe’s top high school basketball players earned postseason accolades for the 2014-15 season.
Fort Lauderdale High School forward Trewston Pierce and his sister Hollywood Christian School guard Shae Pierce were named All-Broward County First Team. Their younger sister Burgundy Pierce was named honorable mention as a seventh-grade forward for Hollywood Christian. American Heritage guard Skyla Osceola also earned honorable mention.
Trewston, who made First Team for schools in Class 6A through 8A, shined in his only season for the Flying L’s. As a senior, he led the squad in scoring with an average of 21 points per game. Trewston scored a game-high 34 points in his final game, a district playoff loss to Boyd Anderson. His season high came in mid-December when he poured in 38 points against Monarch.
Similar to her brother, Shae, whose First Team honor came in the Class 2A through 5A group, also generated a memorable debut. In her first season at the school, Shae helped Hollywood Christian go from a team that won only three games the previous season to a 19-8 season and a Class 2A-District 14 title. The sophomore finished first in several categories, including points, assists and steals. Her 24.4 points per game included a season-high 42 points in early December against Highlands Christian. She scored 20 or more points in a game 17 times.
While Shae lit up the scoreboard, Burgundy excelled on defense, where she led the team with 8.5 boards per game. She was the top rebounder on both the offensive and defensive sides. She also demonstrated a scoring touch with 10.3 points per game.
Skyla’s sophomore season included serving as a captain and helping a young Patriots team compile a 19-7 record. American Heritage finished runner-up in Class 5A-District 16 behind state champion Dillard and reached the 5A regional semifinals.
