The honors keep piling up for Mount Rainier senior Brittany McPhee.
And they keep getting bigger, too.
One day after being named the Gatorade Washington Girls Basketball Player of the Year for the third year in a row, news comes that McPhee is on the exclusive Parade All-America team.
Only 20 seniors from across the country made the team. McPhee, a 6-foot forward who has signed with Stanford, is the lone Washington player on the list. No Washington players are included on the Parade All-America boys team.
You can find the complete list for both teams here as well as stories on the overall Girl Player of the Year (A’ja Wilson of Heathwood Hall in Columbia, S.C.) and Boys Player of the Year (Jahlil Okafor of Wthiney Young in Chicago, Ill.).
The teams will be highlighted in this weekend’s Parade Magazine, which you’ll find in the Sunday Seattle Times.
A big round of applause to one of Washington’s all-time best players — congratulations, Brittany!
