The Hernando Sun covers high school sports throughout the school year, and with spring break, we had some time to review the stats. We have put together the Hernando Sun all-county teams for boys and girls basketball. Each team that was covered within the county is featured within the all-county teams from the 2023-2024 campaign. The all-county teams are compiled based on regular-season statistics, team accomplishments, and regular-season performances.

Below is the 2023-2024 Hernando Sun All-County Boys Basketball team.

Guard—Braden Joyner, Central, SR: The combo guard was stellar all season long for Central. Bergantino could do it all for the 22-7 Bears and was one of the county’s best players all season long. Bergantino averaged 15.0 points, 5.6 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 2.7 steals a game.

Guard—Austin Nicholson, Springstead, SR: Springstead went 16-10 last season, a six-win improvement from last year’s ball club. Nicholson was the main playmaker that held together the team, with the senior averaging 15.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game.

Guard—Jean Garcia, Weeki Wachee, SR: Garcia is the first of two Hornets to make the all-county team. Named to the GC8 first team, Garcia had a strong senior campaign. Through 27 games, Garcia averaged 15.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 3.0 steals a game for the Hornets.

Forward—Isaac Priester, Weeki Wachee, SR: The Hornets fell to 8-19 this season, but Priester played a significant role in Weeki Wachee’s campaign once again. Through 27 games last season, Priester averaged a team-high 18.2 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists a game for the Hornets.

Forward—JD Watson, Central, SR: It’s hard to ignore that Central was one of the county’s top teams this past season, and the duo of Joyner and Watson was hard to stop for opposing clubs. Last season for the Bears, Watson averaged 14.5 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 4.6 blocks a game.

Utility—Jacob Mcphail, Nature Coast, JR: It was an even season for Nature Coast this past winter, going 14-13. Mcphail proved to be one of the better guards in Hernando County last season. The six-foot-two guard averaged a team-high 10.3 points and 2.7 rebounds a game for the Sharks.

Utility—Josiah Wright, Hernando, SR: Wright was one of the Leopards’ leading scorers all throughout the 2023-2024 campaign and had the Leopards as one of the surprising clubs. The guard averaged a team-high 11.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.5 steals.
