Ruston’s presence was felt on the All-District 2-5A team following a stellar season that closed last week in the first Top 28 appearance in 35 years.

Both senior Braylan McNeal and sophomore Aidan Anding headlined the first team, while junior Lonnie Dimmer finished on second team.

“The guys are very deserving of being recognized for all-district,” Ruston head coach Ryan Bond said. “Their hard work led to our remarkable season.”

McNeal led Ruston in scoring over the season after averaging 15.2 points and playing in all 33 games for the Bearcats. Anding was second in scoring with 10.9 points per game and averaging 42.2 percent from beyond the three-point line.

Juniors Zhy Scott and Jay Lillard along with sophomore Joran Parker were named to the district’s honorable mention team.

The Bearcats finished the season with an overall 29-4 record and ended with the No. 2 overall seed in the LHSAA Non-Select Division I playoffs before losing to Ponchatoula in the semifinals.
