MERIDIAN, Idaho — It may not have been the Cinderella-story ending for the Mountain View Mavericks girls basketball team, whose perfect season was shattered by Eagle in the 5A state championship game.
But for Mavericks' senior guard Darian White, it was as close as you could get to a fairytale ending.
White, who was also named the 5A Southern Idaho Conference Player of the Year, averaged 15.2 points per game, 5.7 rebounds, 3.4 steals and 3.2 assists per game this season.
Off the court, White spends her time volunteering with cancer survivors.
"White is a great all-around player who gives 100% effort on both ends," Timberline head girls basketball coach Andy Jones said in a press release. "She can penetrate, she's a good passer and she's become a good 3-point shooter - and she will just wear out your point guard with her defense."
She has already signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Montana State University beginning this fall.
White is the second Maverick to earn the coveted award.
Destiny Slocum, now a standout at Oregon State, won the award in both her junior and senior years (2015-2016, 2014-2015).
