Thomas E. Edwards Sr. High School senior Jacorriah Bracey received another accolade on her resume this week.
On Wednesday, Bracey received the news that she was selected to play in the Mississippi Alabama All-Star game, which will start on Mar. 13 at the AE Wood Coliseum on the campus of Mississippi College in Clinton.
Bracey is a two-time Bolivar Commercial All-Area Player of the Year, and she is a two-time Clarion Ledger Dandy Dozen selection. Bracey signed with Ole Miss in November.
Bracey was humbled by her selection to the Mississippi-Alabama game.
“Being selected to the MS/AL game is an honor,” Bracey said. “That means that the humble beginnings of my hard work are paying off through all of the many accomplishments. I believe that my team here at Thomas E. Edwards, Sr. High School has been productive and monumental, and I will use my foundation here to continue my growth as a student-athlete at the University of Mississippi.
“I would like to thank and share this honor with my teammates for the support they have shown and the hard work they put in each day.”
Thomas E. Edwards girls basketball head coach Chiquita Bracey, who is Jacorriah’s mother, was excited when hearing the news of Jacorriah’s all-star selection.
“She is the first player in school history to make the Mississippi-Alabama game,” Coach Bracey said. “She has created a legacy. She is laying the groundwork for future athletes that are coming along. She’s been a trailblazer, and it’s good to be recognized as one of the best in the state.”
Jacorriah has averaged 35 points and 10 rebounds a game this season. Her work has been crucial in Thomas E. Edwards posting a 12-4 record through 16 games. Jacorriah has scored 3,586 points in her four-year career. Since her freshman season, she has helped lead the Lady Tigers to an overall record of 62-35 with three trips to the 3A State Playoffs.
Jacorriah said she is thankful for the love and support she has received from her father Curtis and her mother. She is also grateful for the support she has received from assistant coach Veronica Walker and the staff and faculty at Thomas E. Edwards Sr. High School.
