This story from the Associated Press just came across the wire:

SEATTLE — High-scoring Kentridge guard Gary Bell and Holy Names’ Erika Johnson have been voted the Associated Press Washington prep basketball players of the year for the 2010-11 season.

Bell and Johnson were the winners in voting conducted by sports writers and editors from around the state and announced on Thursday.

Bell edged out Garfield’s Tony Wroten Jr., and Gonzaga Prep’s Chris Sarbaugh for state player of the year honors. Bell averaged 28.5 points and eight rebounds for the Chargers.

Johnson was a near-unanimous selection on the girls’ side after helping Holy Names to the Class 3A title. The California-bound senior averaged 16 points, 11 rebounds and nearly five assists leading Holy Names to an undefeated season.

When the complete all-state teams are released, I’ll post the results here.
