Whatcom Hoops Girls Top 30: #26 Ailina Rabang

In an incredible season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops is ranking the top 30 girls. Each day we’ll feature an amazing player in our county and count down until we get to #1. So join us daily as we honor the best of the best.


Ailina Rabang, sophomore, Lummi Nation

WHY SHE’S #26: Rabang only played half the season for the Lady Blackhawks after transferring from Sehome, but what a half-season it was for the 5-foot-5 guard, who averaged more than 22 points a game. Her ability to score on drives and from beyond the arc plus being able to anchor the press were the pieces Lummi Nation needed to dominate the Northwest 1B League and reach the Class 1B state tournament.

COACH KRISTA MAHLE: “Ailina was a great addition to the Lady Blackhawks at mid-season. She came ready to play and ready to win. She is a great teammate and was always ready to execute plays or shoot a 3.”
