2016-2017 Gatorade National Girls Basketball Player of the Year Announcement

On Wednesday, March 15, Megan Walker of Monacan High School (North Chesterfield, Va.) was announced as the 2016-17 Gatorade National Girls Basketball Player of the Year in Washington, DC at the Washington Wizards-Dallas Mavericks game. Megan was pulled out onto the court during the second quarter where she thought she was the fan of the game, however, that’s when the jumbrotron rolled the POY video announcing Megan as the winner. As the video rolled, 2015 WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne walked up behind Megan and presented her with the trophy. Megan was completely shocked and was able to celebrate with Elena and her parents right after the announcement. 

In addition to the above, the video is available on the Gatorade POY YouTube page: Megan Walker: 2016-17 Gatorade National Girls Basketball Player of the Year​.
