“Emma is one the best players in the state if not the best. She dominates the key at both ends of the floor and gives every opposing coach nightmares on how to slow her down. She was great last year as a freshman and even better this year as a sophomore. The sky is limit on how good she can be and it is going to be exciting to watch her over the next two years."

She is a good team player and supportive of her teammates.”

Opposing coach scouting report
“She wants the ball in her hand when it matters most. She's a tough guard in that she moves so well off the ball creating mismatches for herself and her teammates. Pure scorer who uses contact to her advantage. When opposing teams focus on stopping her from scoring, she exploits defenses to set up her teammates making her team even better.”
Past all-state honors
2018 — 5A Second Team

Eleyana Tafisi, Copper Hills

6A First Team
Jr., 5-6, Guard
2018-2019 statistics
14.8 points per game
3.9 assists per game
3.1 steals per game
Season high
25 points at West Jordan on Feb. 5
Opposing coach scouting report
“Eleyana Tafisi is the kind of player that you never want to go against. She never seems to get rattled and in fact she shines in the big moments. As a defender she rattles your guards and prevents them from being able to do what you want offensively. Offensively, I don’t believe I’ve seen a quicker crossover or quicker footwork. Her ability to get that first step and get around her defender is as good as anyone in the state. You want to give her that first step to respect her speed but then she’ll bury you with deep jumpers when you do. She is as good as it gets.”
Past all-state honors
2018 — 6A Third Team

Samantha Hester, Westlake

6A First Team
Sr., 5-8, Guard
2018-2019 statistics
13.0 points per game
3.3 rebounds per game
2.1 assists per game
3.0 steals per game
Season high
25 points vs. Provo on Nov. 20
Opposing coach scouting report
“Samantha Hester is a very solid player who gets the job done on both ends of the floor. She moves so well offensively setting herself up very well to finish and score. She is someone you have to always be aware of defensively as she does not need much room to shoot and is a very good shooter from any range. She is also a great defender who anticipates so well often coming up with steals and finishing in transition. She plays with so much passion, confidence and is a great leader who never stops and always gives her best effort for her team.”
Past all-state honors
2018 — 6A Second Team

Timea Gardiner, Fremont

6A First Team
Fr., 6-3, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
13.2 points per game
7.9 rebounds per game
2.1 assists per game
1.5 steals per game
Season high
21 points vs. Layton on Dec. 21
Opposing coach scouting report
“Timea is a unique player that created match-up nightmares for most teams that she faced. She is long, skilled and athletic. A do it all player who has range and the ability to put it on the floor and go past you. She also was dominant in the post, with the ability to score in a variety of ways. A great rebounder who can take the ball coast to coast and make the right play. On defense, her length and athleticism allowed her to protect the rim with the best of them. She also was a force on the perimeter getting a lot of deflections and steals to help her team dominate Region 1.”

Kaitlin Burgess, Riverton

6A Second Team
Sr., 5-9, Guard
2018-2019 statistics
14.0 points per game
3.0 rebounds per game
2.0 assists per game
Season high
24 points at Fremont on Nov. 20
Opposing coach scouting report
“Burgess was the most dangerous 3-point shooter in the state this season. Defensively you had to be disciplined and alert for four quarters whenever she was on the court ‚ she had the potential to drain back-to-back 3-pointers to start the game before you even had the chance to take off your warm-ups. There were a lot of great shooters in our region, but what separates Kaitlyn from the rest is her quick release. You think you are contesting her shot but you're not... she just doesn't need the same air space that others do to get up a good shot.”
Past all-state honors
2018 — 6A Third Team

Finau Tonga, Taylorsville

6A Second Team
Sr., 6-2, Center
2018-2019 statistics
15.4 points per game
10.5 rebounds per game
Season high
30 points vs. Jordan on Jan. 3
Opposing coach scouting report
“I have been coaching girls basketball in Utah for 10 years, and never have I faced a more dominant low post player than Tonga. If she catches the ball anywhere near the basket, you're already beat. She has tremendous strength and balance, and her soft hands and deft touch allow her to grab entry passes that she really has no business catching. She is always around the rim, and has excellent instincts when going after offensive rebounds. As a defender she is an intimidating rim protector, and is really skilled as using her body and high hands to contest shots without fouling.”
Past all-state honors
2018 — 6A Second Team
2017 — 5A Honorable Mention

Jalyn Van Dyke, Herriman

6A Second Team
Sr., 5-7, Guard
2018-2019 statistics
12.0 points per game
8.0 rebounds per game
Season high
27 points a Viewmont on Nov. 21
Opposing coach scouting report
“Jalyn Van Dyke Is the definition of competitor. She brings a toughness to Herriman that is difficult for opponents to match. She’s a triple threat on the offensive end with her ability to hit shots from deep, drive to the basket or post up with her back to the ball. Her size as well as her guard and post abilities on the offensive end make her a matchup nightmare.”
Past all-state honors
2017 — 3A Second Team (at Morgan)

Lenisi Fineanganofo, Copper Hills

6A Second Team
Jr., 5-10, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
10.6 points per game
7.0 rebounds per game
1.7 assists per game
Season high
18 points at Springville on Jan. 2
Opposing coach scouting report
“Lenisi is a very active undersized 4 who is very difficult to guard. She can drive to the basket and finish strong with either hand. She also has an array of spin moves and fadeaways that allow her to score over bigger girls. On top of those strong traits she is also a very good offensive rebounder and scores on several pubacks each game. Another key to Lenisi's game is her ability to play the point on Copper Hills' press and wreak havoc on the opposing teams with her strength and quickness. She is a handful for opposing coaches.”
Past all-state honors
2018 — 6A Honorable Mention

Halle Nelson, American Fork

6A Second Team
Jr., 5-11, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
13.0 points per game
Season high
33 points at Pleasant Grove on Jan. 15
Opposing coach scouting report
“In preparing for Halle you really have to be aware of her ability to shoot from anywhere. Her size and skill creates problems defensively. While her length defensively can really disrupt your offense. Her athleticism also allows her to guard anyone on the floor. She is really developing to be an outstanding player.”

Haylee Doxey, Fremont

6A Second Team
Jr., 5-11, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
10.6 points per game
6.5 rebounds per game
2.5 assists per game
1.9 steals per game
Season high
22 points vs. Davis on Feb. 1
Opposing coach scouting report
“Haylee Doxey is a terrific all-around player. She demonstrated every game that she is a player that had to be game planned for. She is tough on defense and can score in multiple ways. She is a great leader on the floor and plays well with the talent that she has around her on her team.”
Past all-state honors
2018 — 6A Third Team

Sadie Nixon, Pleasant Grove

6A Third Team
Jr., 6-0, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
14.9 points per game
5.5 rebounds per game
3.8 assists per game
1.9 steals per game
Season high
31 points vs. American Fork on Jan. 15
Opposing coach scouting report
“Sadie was the biggest offensive threat on the Pleasant Grove team. She has a good knowledge of basketball and how to get herself into positions for scoring opportunities. She can score easily around the basket and can hit free throws. She is competitive and determined to succeed. She worked really hard to overcome the challenges she was faced with during her high school career to become a good basketball player.”
Past all-state honors
2017 — 5A Third Team

Abby Garreaud, Cyprus

6A Third Team
Sr., 6-1, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
14.7 points per game
11.5 rebounds per game
Season high
33 points at Park City on Dec. 11
Opposing coach scouting report
“Abby was always worrisome from the opposing bench, simply due to her knack for securing offensive rebounds, and finishing in traffic. She would draw double teams from everyone in the region and still managed to lead in both points and rebounds by quite a margin. She was a smart, efficient rim protector defensively, and driving opponents or posts had trouble finishing shots they'd typically get.”

Jaycee Lichtie, Bingham

6A Third Team
Jr., 5-11, Forward/Center
2018-2019 statistics
10.3 points per game
6.3 rebounds per game
Season high
18 points vs. Viewmont on Jan. 3
Opposing coach scouting report
“Jaycee puts a premium on hustle, her defense and rebounding set her apart from others. Her motor is nonstop which she uses to create steals and second chance opportunities for her team. Hits big shots when needed, defends the post intelligently, and gives her all for the good of the team. Unselfish player who was an important part of their championship run.”

Avalon Miller, Riverton

6A Third Team
Jr., 6-3, C
2018-2019 statistics
11.0 points per game
6.0 rebounds per game
Season high
24 points vs. Lone Peak on Dec. 13
Opposing coach scouting report
“Length and athleticism and the best words to describe Avalon. At 6-foot-2 and a big wing span she makes it difficult for opposing teams to score at the basket. She also plays the top of Riverton's 1-2-2 zone and the ball just dies because it is so difficult to reverse the ball. Avalon is also an outstanding rebounder and gets a couple of putbacks each game.”

Ameleya Angialu, Bingham

6A Third Team
Jr., 5-6, G
2018-2019 statistics
7.9 points per game
3.2 assists per game
2.6 steals per game
Season high
19 points vs. Layton on Feb. 18
Opposing coach scouting report
“Ameleya is the floor leader of this team. She handles the ball and runs the offense for Bingham. Keys to defending her is to keep her in front of you and not allow penetration and try to make sure nothing is easy. Amaleya has the ability to beat you 1 on 1 and make 3-pointers if you don't guard her. She keeps everyone involved and has great composure.”

Marissa Scoresby, Westlake

6A Third Team
Sr., 5-8, G
2018-2019 statistics
8.9 points per game
4.2 rebounds per game
2.1 assists per game
1.3 steals per game
Season high
19 points vs. Visa del Lago, Calif. On Nov. 29
Opposing coach scouting report
“We knew Marissa was going to be a special player when she was just a sophomore. At that time she was almost exclusively a 3-point shooter. But as she has developed over the past few years, she has turned into a very well-rounded player. Still a deadly 3-point shooter but has added the ability to score in the mid-range and at the rim. She has also become a player who sets up her teammates and makes them better. She is obviously a main reason for Westlake’s success over the past two seasons. I am extremely happy that I don’t have to game plan for her again. She is very deserving of all of her postseason honors."
