Lionette sisters Emily, left, and Abbey Sissom each earned a spot on the All-Tournament team after helping lead Cannon County to the semifinals of the Class AA Tournament.
It represents Cannon County's highest finish in the state tournament since 1989 when they won the Class AA State Championship.
Emily Sissom, a Union signee, completed her career as Tennessee's all-time leader in 3-point field goals (381) and a member of the Lionettes' 2,000-point club.
Heralded freshman Abbey Sissom lived up to preseason billing and debuted with a smashing season that saw her earn All-District 8-AA, 8-AA Freshman of the Year, All-District 8-AA Tournament and All-State Tournament.
