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.
Ellie Wolverton, senior, Bellingham
WHY SHE’S #30: The 5-foot-7 natural shooting guard sacrificed her own scoring to help the inexperienced Bayhawks this season. She played almost every minute of every game at point guard, averaging 7 points a game, 4 rebounds and almost one and half assists despite being asked to run the offense, rebound inside, and guard the other team’s best outside player. What set her above was her steady leadership as the lone senior on a young team that had five freshmen and a sophomore.
COACH JAMES WOLVERTON: “Ellie needed to take most of our shots, handle the incredible defensive pressure of the best teams in our league, handle the other team’s best defender on her, and lead a very young team. Ellie performed with poise and grace and developed as a leader. ”
