Heights’ Alvarez earns all-state honors

Gracelynn Alvarez

Following a standout season on the court, one of the area’s brightest high school basketball stars was recently rewarded with a statewide honor.

Heights senior guard Gracelynn Alvarez was named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches’ Class 6A girls all-state team last week. Alvarez, who is committed to UTEP, averaged 15.8 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds this season for the Lady Bulldogs, who finished 24-5 overall and reached their second consecutive regional quarterfinal before falling to Cypress Creek.

She also was a first-team all-district selection and one of 10 finalists for the inaugural Anthony Fields Award, given to the Houston region’s top girls basketball player.
