The Lady Lions guard posted solid numbers while taking on the responsibility of helping to guide a youth-laden roster.
Johnson averaged 9.3 points, 2.5 assists and two steals per game to help pace Luella to a GHSA state Class 6-A tournament berth.
Johnson’s efforts may have flown somewhat under the radar, but count Luella coach Michelle Smith among those who were paying close attention.
“Carrington has shown steady improvement over the season,” Smith said. “She has become a great leader and the engine of the Lady Lions basketball team.”
The scouting report on Johnson tells the story: very good defender; plays hard on both ends of the floor; finishes well around the basket; good pull-up shooter.
What’s more, it appears this is just the beginning.
“Her skill level has also improved from game to game and the sky is the limit for her,” said Smith. “The intangibles that Carrington possesses that impact the team are her heart and determination.
“She leads by example and plays hard every possession.”
