FIRST TEAM

Jasmin Edwards, G, Sr., Lynnwood (Player of the Year)

Rielly led the Wesco 3A in scoring at 21.5 points per game. The University Santa Clara recruit was the Wesco 3A co-Player of the Year. She helped lead Everett to the District 1 championship as the Seagulls advanced to the opening round of the state tournament for the first time since 1996.
