Player of the Year

Brooke Pahukoa, Lake Stevens, Sr.

The senior wing missed six games with a finger injury, but she more than made up for it with a stellar second half of the season. Energized by her return, the Vikings battled through the consolation bracket to a third-place finish in districts, beat Newport to qualify for the state tournament and Davis to make it back to Tacoma, where Lake Stevens finished fifth.

Coach of the Year

Joe Marsh, Arlington

In just his second season as the Eagles head coach, Marsh led Arlington to a 4A North title, second-place finish in districts and a spot in the 4A championship game at the Hardwood Classic.

First Team

Brooke Pahukoa, Lake Stevens, Sr.

Determined to get her team back to Tacoma, the Vikings guard had another strong season, leading the Vikings to a fifth-place finish at state.

Jasmin Edwards, Lynnwood, Jr.

With their run-and-gun style, the Royals were a tough team to handle this season and no player epitomized that better than their fiery point guard.

Darian Rielly, Everett, So.

The Seagulls sophomore guard grew up in a big way this season, leading Everett to a district championship and a state berth.

Lindsay Brown, Arlington, Sr.

The Eagles post did a little bit of everything under the basket, helping lead Arlington to a 4A North title and a spot in the 4A championship game.

Beth Carlson, Archbishop Murphy, Sr.

The Wildcats post terrorized Cascade Conference down low, averaging a double-double in leading Murphy to the state tournament.

Second Team

Krista Showalter, Arlington, Sr.

Brittney Pahukoa, Lake Stevens, Sr.
