Incoming Huskies Racking Up Awards
The Washington women's basketball program has enjoyed a successful first season under new coach Kevin McGuff, having enjoyed a recent berth to the WNIT. But looking at the accomplishments of the incoming Dawgs (all from the state of Washington), it's hard not to be optimistic about the future of the Husky program.
We'll start with Katie Collier, the first McDonald's All-American to sign with Washington. Collier, a 6-2 forward from Seattle Christian High School, was recently named the Seattle Times' Player of the Year - as much for her on-court accomplishments and her noted battle with leukemia off of it. Collier would sometimes play games following chemotherapy treatments, but never let it be the excuse for a loss or poor performance.
Heather Corral had a season to remember at Prairie High School in Vancouver, Wash. The 6-1 wing not only led her team to 3A State Championship at the Tacoma Dome, but also secured the Tacoma News-Tribune's Player of the Year Award. Corral, whose sister Ashley was a four-year letterwinner at USC, is a versatile forward who can score, rebound, defend and set up teammates. Even better for Corral, the state title came after the senior missed the previous two tournaments with knee injuries.
