Hartley is New York Player of the Year again
Hartley, had five triple-doubles and averaged 27 points per game as a senior, is now a finalist for the Gatorade National Player of the Year.
Hartley was a finalist for the McDonald’s and Naismith national player of the year award which both went to Stanford signee and former UConn recruiting target Chiney Ogwumike.
Hartley had a career-high 51 points but her North Babylon team lost to Sachem East in the New York Suffolk AA championship game on Mar. 4. Hartley will be competing in the McDonald’s All-American Game on Mar. 31 in Columbus, Ohio and the WBCA All-American Game on Apr. 3 in San Antonio, Tex.
Norwich Free Academy’s Kastine Evans, who is headed to Kentucky in the fall, was named Connecticut’s Gatorade Player of the Year.
A trio of juniors on UConn’s recruiting radar (Betnijah Laney of Smyrna, Del., Kiah Stokes of Marion, Iowa and Elizabeth Williams of Virginia Beach, Va.) were winners of the Delaware, Iowa and Virginia awards.
