AURORA | Regis Jesuit’s Justine Hall won the Gatorade Colorado Player of the Year award announced Thursday.
It is the second straight Gatorade POY award for the Raiders, as fellow senior Diani Akigbogun received the award last season.
Hall and her Regis Jesuit team faces off against Poudre at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Coors Events Center in the Class 5A state semifinals.
Hall, a 5-foot-10 forward who has signed with Purdue, continues to rack up the accolades. Along with Akigbogun, she was selected as a Womens’ Basketball Coaches Association honorable mention All-American and was selected to play in her second straight Show all-star game sponsored by the Denver Nuggets.
Hall leads Regis Jesuit with an average of 15.9 points per game in addition to 3.2 steals, 2.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists and earned All-Continental League first team honors.
“Justine Hall is a tough competitor who has improved steadily since her freshman year,” Chaparral coach Tony Speights said in a statement.
No other Aurora girls player has won the award since Gatorade began giving it out in 1986.
