Three Spartans and three Lady Spartans are among those receiving MRVC East basketball honors for the 2012-13 season.
Junior Reid Summers and freshman Miya O’Dell were Richmond’s first-team selections in the all-conference voting by the league coaches.
Summers, who scored his 1,000th career point earlier this season, was named first team for the second consecutive year after earning second-team honors in his freshman season.
Summers joins Higginsville senior Tyrell Thirkield on the first team. It was Thirkield’s third straight season of earning first-team honors after being voted second team following his freshman year.
Richmond junior Lendarrius Pritchett was voted to the second team, with senior Tevin Robinson named honorable mention.
In addition to O’Dell, the Lady Spartans had two selections on the post-season team with senior Emma Long and junior Jenny Simpson named honorable mention.
