Legacy student named girls Player of the Year
Gatorade, in collaboration with ESPN RISE, recently named Legacy High School's Quincey Noonan as its Colorado girls basketball Player of the Year.
Noonan is the second player to be chosen from Legacy High School.
A 5-foot-10 senior guard, she led the Lightning (26-1) to the Class 4A state finals.
Noonan averaged 10.7 points, 5.1 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game.
She set a school record when she dished out 15 assists in Legacy's last season game against Doherty High School.
Noonan signed a letter of intent to continue her basketball career in the fall at the University of Denver.
"Quincey is one of the most coachable players I have been in contact with at any level," Legacy head coach Jamie Carey said in a news release. "She has tremendous skill, but she also has an attitude that makes coaching her even more special.
"She impacts her teammates in a positive way and makes them better just with her presence."
