Player of the Year: Tianna Eaton, Rowland, Guard, Junior
The great thing about Rowland High School’s Tianna Eaton is she’s got another year to showcase all she can do.
And if the preview is any indication of what’s in store, area fans are going to get their money’s worth her senior year.
Rowland, not your typical girls basketball powerhouse, went undefeated in the Valle Vista League with the junior earning league most valuable player honors. It was the Raiders’ first league title since 1988.
Not done, Eaton helped lead the Raiders to the CIF Southern Section Division 2A semifinals, losing a heartbreaker to Agoura, 43-41.
It was another historic milestone for Rowland, reaching the semifinals for the first time since 1979.
At the center of it all was Eaton, who in addition to be named to the Division 2A first team, has been selected the San Gabriel Valley Tribune 2016 girls basketball player of the year.
Eaton, who who is considering Loyola Marymount, Hawaii, U.C. Riverside and others as schools start to notice her all-around game, was thrilled to accomplish so much this past season.
