The Neosho Lady Wildcats picked up two all-district selections in Class 4, District 12 — senior Madison Flynn and sophomore Olivia Hixson.

Flynn led Neosho in scoring, rebounding, and steals with 12.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 2.4 steals per game.

She netted a career-high 30 points in a win over Cassville and produced 26 points against Monett, 24 against McDonald County, 23 against St. Joseph Lafayette, 22 against Joplin, and 20 against Glendale. Flynn scored in double-digits 15 times.

Flynn recorded a pair of double-doubles: 30 points and 10 rebounds against Cassville and 15 points and 12 rebounds against Republic. In that Republic game, she also had four steals.

Flynn had a season-high six steals in that win over Lafayette and she made at least four steals in eight different games.

Additionally, Flynn’s quick hands were showcased by 133 total deflections.

Hixson averaged 10.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.3 steals with long-range shooting her true specialty.

Hixson made 51 of 191 shots (27 percent) from 3-point range, ending in one of the best seasons shooting the trifecta in Neosho girls basketball history.

Hixson netted a career-high 22 points against Kansas City Ruskin in the Neosho Holiday Classic and she had 19 against Seneca and 18 against both Kansas City Center and Carl Junction. Hixson hit a season-high six 3-point shots in the season opener against Seneca.

Hixson came just shy of her first career double-double in back-to-back games against Center and Ruskin, finishing with nine rebounds against Center and eight against Ruskin.

Hixson made four steals against Willard.

Both Flynn and Hixson earned all-tournament honors in the Neosho Holiday Classic.

The Neosho girls won their first district tournament game since 2009.

Carl Junction junior and Missouri State recruit Katie Scott took player of the year honors and she averaged 22.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 3.3 assists during the regular season.

Carl Junction head coach Brad Shorter earned coach of the year and the Lady Bulldogs won their fourth straight district title.
