2019 Scorebook Live All-State Girls Basketball
Adams ran the point all season for one of the best teams in the state. She helped lead Mt. Spokane to a 24-2 record, with their only losses coming to defending 4A champion Central Valley and Prairie in the 3A state championship game. A lights out shooter, Adams hit five or more 3-pointers in a game six times. She will play for Loyola Marymount next season.
Walker can flat out score. A 5-6 guard with NBA range, Walker drained eight 3-pointers and poured in 38 points in Annie Wright’s 1A state tournament win over Zillah. She averaged more than 37 points per game during the season, leading Annie Wright to a Nisqually League co-championship. She was named Nisqually League MVP and first team 1A all-tournament.
Stevens helped lead No. 6 Bellarmine to the 4A state semifinals and an eventual fifth-place finish, knocking down 12 3-pointers and averaging 13.3 points over four tournament games.
Miller, a 6-4 forward, teamed up with Jordyn Jenkins to give Kentridge arguably the best low post tandem in the state over the last three seasons. Miller helped lead the Chargers to a 4A state championship two years ago, and she took Kentridge to the semifinals and a third-place finish this season. Miller, who will play for the Washington Huskies next season, averaged more than 17 points and 11 rebounds for Kentridge (26-3).
Simmelink helped lead Central Valley to four consecutive Greater Spokane League titles, two state championships and a national championship. The 5-7 senior point guard is a tough-as-nails defender and a great passer. A three-sport athlete, Simmelink will play basketball next season for Concordia University in Portland.
Brown, a 5-10 forward, did all the little things for Kamiakin this season. From steals to rebounds to blocked shots, Brown used her length and athleticism to help lead Kamiakin to the 3A state semifinals. In one of the best games of the tournament — a 67-62 OT loss to Prairie — Brown showed off her versatility, finishing with 8 points, 12 rebounds and 5 steals. She will continue her career next season at Central Washington.
Troy, a 5-10 guard, is one of the most athletic players in the state. She helped lead Inglemoor (21-8) on a surprising run to the 4A state quarterfinals. A three-time 4A KingCo all-league first-team selection, Troy will team up with Symone Brown at Central Washington next season.
Gardner had a senior season to remember. She helped lead the Falcons to the 3A Greater St. Helens League championship, was named the league’s co-player of the year along with teammate Brooke Walling and capped it off by winning the 3A state championship. Gardner can shoot it from deep, and her clutch jumpers helped propel Prairie past Kamiakin in the 3A semifinals. Gardner finished with 21 points — including five 3-pointers — in Prairie’s 67-62 overtime win. She will continue her career next season at Portland State.
