March 27, 2004 -- North Hopkins leading scorer Sara Weir and leading rebounder Katy Williams were both selected to the Texas Girls Coaches Association Class 1A All-State basketball team, announced on Wednesday.

Weir, a junior who scored 631 points this season for an average of 18 per game, was also the team's top 3-point shooter. Williams, a sophomore, averaged a double-double with almost 17 points and 13 rebounds per game.

They combined to lead North Hopkins to a a 31-4 record, the District 19-1A championship and No. 8 state ranking before losing in overtime to eventual state runner-up Muenster.

The pair had also been honored last week by the Texas High School Coaches Association, which named Williams as a Second Team All-State and First Team All-Region pick and Weir as a Second Team All-Region selection. It was the second year both girls had been All-Region selections.

They were the only girls from Hopkins County to be selected by the TGCA for the All-State team. Winnsboro had a pair on the Class 3A team: senior Katie Cook and junior Whitney Huffman.
