CSD Jackie Drakeford

CSD coach Jackie Drakeford is the 2018-19 PAC 7 1A Coach of the Year for boys basketball, while five of his players were named to the All-Conference team.

The Community of School of Davidson boys basketball team added more accolades to its record-setting season in 2018-19.

In a season where he missed three games for health reasons, coach Jackie Drakeford was named the PAC 7 1A Coach of the Year after leading CSD to its first-ever regular-season and conference tournament championships. Meanwhile, five Spartans – all seniors – landed on the All-Conference team, including one for honorable mention.


The team success of the Langtree Charter girls basketball team garnered recognition for five of its players. In the school’s second season – first in the PAC 7 – the Lions went 25-7 and were runners-up in the league standings.

Junior Adaje Williams, who averaged 18.6 points per game, was joined by teammates Josie Hester, Kendra Quarles, Emerie Tillmon and Sania Harris. Williams was also named third-team All-District.

The Pine Lake boys basketball team had three seniors on the All-Conference team, led by first-team All-District player Demarcus Johnson. Justin Workman and Grant Wagner joined their classmate with PAC 7 honors. Johnson averaged 19.5 points and 5.3 rebounds this year.

Mountain Island Charter junior Demetrius Washington was the boys Player of the Year.
