In a season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops ranked the top 30 girls. Each day we featured an amazing player in our county and counted down until we got to #1. We hope you enjoyed the countdown as we honored the best of the best.
Haylee Koetje, junior, Lynden
WHY SHE’S #11: A gifted all-around athlete who could jump center and guard posts and could also step outside and shoot the 3 or run the break, Koetje did what was needed for the Lions. She averaged 11 points a game on 45 percent shooting and pulled down 7 rebounds a game. Whether running a play or creating her own shot, the 5-foot-9 wing was often the one the Lions looked to for offense and for her efforts was named to the all-Northwest Conference second team.
COACH VIC WOLFFIS: “Haylee was our most versatile player in the number of roles, offensive and defensive assignments she was given, and what she brought to the floor.”
