Diggins' team finished second, and he finished with 11 points in the first game and 7 points in the second game.

Additionally, Diggins, along with senior Elijah Morris, were also chosen for the Heart O' Lakes All-Conference team, which is voted on by other coaches in the conference. Both were instrumental in the Yellowjackets success this season, and Cresap was pleased they were both named to the team.
