PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles junior Millie Long and Neah Bay junior Laila Greene received honorable mention honors in the Class 2A and 1B divisions in all-state girls basketball voting by members of the Associated Press.
Long was named All-Peninsula MVP by area coaches and the sports staff of the Peninsula Daily News earlier this week after leading the Roughriders to Olympic League and West Central District championships and a third-straight trip to the 2A state tournament. Greene helped lead the Red Devils win the 1B North Olympic League and the 1B Tri-District championships and to a berth in the state 1B tournament.
Record-setting guard Hailey Van Lith of Cashmere and Mount Si sharpshooter Jade Mullins have been voted the Associated Press Washington state high school basketball players of the year.
Van Lith was a unanimous selection on the girls side in voting of sports writers and editors from around the state. Bound for Louisville next season as one of the most decorated basketball players in state history, Van Lith capped her prep career averaging 34 points and 10 rebounds per game for Cashmere.
Mullins led Mount Si to the Class 4A state title and was named MVP of the state tournament. Mullins averaged nearly 20 points per game and was also named the Kingco player of the year.
