Hester scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds during the Sharks’ 72-65 defeat against Clearwater. As of Jan. 2, it was Anclote’s lone defeat during the holiday tournament season. Hester also scored 17 and 14 in wins over Wiregrass Ranch and Grace Baptist Academy, respectively.

SEASON STATS

The senior is averaging a double-double this season (15 points and 10 rebounds). Hester is one of three Sharks with a scoring average in double figures, joined by Jalen Cooper and Jacobie Forrest.

SENIOR LEADERSHIP

If there is one thing this Anclote team doesn’t lack, it’s upperclassman experience. The Sharks have a 13-player roster and 12 are seniors. The only non-senior, Deon Dease, is a junior.
