LHS recent graduate, SueRe”esa Williams, laced “em up for the last time in her storied high school career Thursday, July 14, at the Texas Girls Coaches Association All-Star Basketball Game.
Williams, a three-year starter and two-year team captain of Lockhart High School was selected to the 4A/5A South All-Star Team.
“It was a great honor, I am so proud of Sue,” s

aid Head Coach Dave Johnston. “She really worked hard and deserves all the acclaim.”
Williams was one of 24 graduating seniors in the state of Texas to make the All-Star Team of approximately 3,500 seniors throughout the state. The Basketball All-Star game was held at the Delco Center in Austin. The All-Star members practiced two days in preparation for the All-Star game.
“I really could see that the girls had a great time getting to know each other and were able to finish their career in a special way that only a select few can relate to,” added Johnston.
Williams was selected as a starter for the South All-Stars by her teammates and All-Star Coaches. The game was close throughout the first 10 minutes and Williams scored her first two points with a jumper off the glass (seven points for the game). The south fell behind by eight points to end the first half.
At the start of the second half, Williams nailed a deep three point shot from the corner to cut the deficit to five. A few minutes later, Williams got a steal and went coast to coast for a lay-up to tighten up the game. Both teams would battle back and forth throughout the remainder of the contest until the South pulled ahead for an eventual three-point victory.
A few of William”s awards while at Lockhart include: two Team All-District 02-03, one Team All-District 03-04, All-Central Texas Team – Honorable Mention 03-04, Offensive Player of the Year 04-05, 4A/5A T.G.C.A. South All-Star Team 04-05.
Williams scored 1,100 points in her career, passing the 1,000-point mark in a district game in Elgin.
“Sue really improved each year and it was fun as a coach to see that growth,” said Johnston. “Sue has such a great family, a lot of support and she is well-grounded. She has a great future ahead of her, (Sue will be a red-shirt Freshman at Tarleton State in the Fall) and we all wish her the best,” added Johnston.
