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.
Jordyn Vezzetti, junior, Blaine
WHY SHE’S #19: On a young and inexperienced team, Vezzetti was the one constant. The 5-foot-7 wing was usually the hardest worker on the floor and averaged 13.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 1 assist a game. She was the go-to player when they needed a score and her competitiveness inspired her teammates.
COACH GRACIE PHELPS: “Jordyn is very tough. She puts in the time, she cares a lot about her teammates, she works hard, and does what needs to be done when our team is feeling low. She’s stepped up in big moments for us in games as well as stepped out of her comfort zone to be a voice in team discussions. Her confidence in her shooting has improved a ton since I’ve coached her. I’m very proud of the ways she is growing as a player and a person.”
