PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Keisha Eaddy

River Hill

The repeat Player of the Year leaves River Hill as the program's all-time leader in points (1,680), steals (646) and assists (380) and was the key component in the No. 3 Hawks' first state title this season.

The Temple-bound senior, a 5-foot-6 guard, used her athleticism, quickness and leadership to make a constant impact at both ends. This season, she averaged 22.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, four assists and seven steals. She scored 20 points in the Hawks' 51-46 win over Western in the Class 3A title game.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Teresa Waters

River Hill

The Hawks made a return trip to the Class 3A state tournament, and this time they brought home the title to cap a 28-0 season. After losing five seniors from last year's team - including 6-foot-4 center Brittany Gordon - Waters counted on the dynamic play of senior standout guard Keisha Eaddy and a strong collective effort from the rest.

Roles changed, with junior Kelsey Erdman moving inside from the perimeter and senior forward Cari Haas doing more scoring, but the Hawks did not miss a beat and surpassed all expectations. Waters has a 170-28 mark in eight seasons, and River Hill is 53-1 in the past two.
