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.
Emmy Hart, junior, Sehome
WHY SHE’S #14: As one of the best 3-point shooters in the Northwest Conference, Hart would have made the Top 30 on her offense alone. She averaged 11 points a game while setting the school record of 69 3-pointers for a season and tying the record of seven 3s in a game several times. But the 5-foot-3 guard used her competitiveness and all-around skills to be a force for the Mariners. She also was second on the team in steals and assists while being an underrated defender. For her efforts, she was recognized as a second-team all-NWC choice.
COACH KIM STENSGAR: “Emmy is a game changer if you lose her on defense. She is a super-hard worker.”
