Finley Parcher, freshman, Lynden

WHY SHE’S #2: Has any girls basketball player in Whatcom County history made as much of an impact in her freshman season as Parcher? On a veteran team filled with all-league players, the powerful 6-foot-1 guard took the Lions to the next level, averaging a team-leading 16.5 points a game on 55 percent shooting from the field and 41 percent from the 3-point line, as well as 7 rebounds, nearly 4 steals, and 3.5 assists. The final piece to Lynden’s state championship who played her best in the biggest games, Parcher was named first-team Class 2A all-state by Scorebook Live, first-team all-Northwest Conference, and second-team all-state tournament.

COACH ROB ADAMS: “Finley had a great freshman campaign. Her impact on our program was felt from the very beginning. She handled an enormous amount of pressure to deliver as freshman and did it from start to finish.”
