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.
Makayla Heaton, junior, Squalicum
WHY SHE’S #18: Heaton teamed with 5-foot-6 twin Mari Binning to give the Storm one of the most dynamic backcourts in the conference. She was able to hit from outside or run the fastbreak equally well, and she doubled her scoring average this season to 12 points a game. And despite her diminutive size, Heaton grabbed 7 rebounds a game and finished with three triple-doubles this season.
COACH JENNY BROWN: “Makayla averaged 30 minutes a game and showed herself to be coachable on top of being a true competitor in an incredibly tough league.”
