MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Watertown-Mayer senior guard Marissa Janning has been named the Minnesota Associated Press Player of the Year for high school girls basketball.

The award was announced on Tuesday. Joining Janning on the AP’s all-state team are Braham junior guard Rebekah Dahlman, New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva sophomore guard Carlie Wagner, Hopkins junior guard Nia Coffey and Eden Prairie senior forward Jackie Johnson.

Janning became the ninth Minnesota girls player to pass the 3,000-point mark for her career. She was on the varsity squad as a seventh-grader and finished with a state-record 458 made shots from 3-point range. Watertown-Mayer’s season ended in the section playoffs with a loss to eventual Class 2A champion Providence Academy of Plymouth.

Janning will play next season at Creighton University in Nebraska.
