CANTON — Pisgah Athletic Director David Pressley may need to build another shelf for all the hardware his daughter Sheridan Pressley is bringing home before she graduates high school.
Two months ago, the Pisgah High School senior point guard was named the WNC Athletic Conference Girls’ Basketball Player of the Year. Then a few days later, she was selected by the North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association to its all-district team. A month later, Pressley’s stellar performance in the Blue-White All-Star Game earned her the most valuable player honor.
Well, make room for another postseason honor.
Pressley, who signed with Queens University in Charlotte, was named to the Class 3-A all-state girls basketball team.
This season, Pressley led the Black Bears to a second consecutive berth in the West Regional championship game after averaging 15.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.3 steals per game.
As good as Pressley was her senior season to garner the all-state honor, her four-year varsity career was even more impressive.
Pressley played an important role in 99 wins, played for a state championship in 2013 and scored 1,670 points in her career. She finished 40 points shy of tying Leslie Young’s school record of 1,710 points.
With at least four more years ahead of her playing college basketball, this will likely not be her last awards.
