Girls basketball regional players of the year

San Francisco: GeAnna Summers-Luaulu (Sacred Heart Cathedral)
The 5-6 point guard was a four-year starter for the Irish (21-8) and was a West Catholic Athletic League Co-Player of the Year. She led SHC to a co-WCAL round-robin championship and the playoff title.
A tenacious defender and dynamite in the open court, Summers-Luaulu averaged a team-best 13.8 points per game and has signed a letter of intent to play at Pacific. When she was sidelined with a knee injury, the Irish lost their last two games of the year.
She definitely made her team go and we built all our defensive game plan around trying to stop her, said St. Ignatius coach Mike Mulkerrins. Shes tough and talented and she deserved her league honors.
Peninsula/South Bay: Kelli Hayes (Mitty)
The other half of the WCAL Co-POY tandem, Hayes led the inexperienced, yet improved Monarchs (21-12) to their 10th Northern California title, this at the Division II level.
The 6-foot senior, who has signed to UCLA, led the team in points (18.0), rebounds (8.0), assists (3.2) and steals (2.8) while earning her fourth varsity letter. In a program filled with history, Hayes passed WNBA standout Danielle Robinson for third place on the schools all-time scoring list with 1,860 points. She helped Mitty win 96 games, two NorCal titles and one state championship in her four years.
Shes been a model of consistency and model person in our program, Mitty coach Sue Phillips said. Shes been an absolute pleasure and joy to coach. I look forward to following her successes at UCLA.
North Bay: Morgan Bertsch (Santa Rosa)
The 6-4 center is headed to UC Davis after leading the Panthers (28-5) to one of their best seasons.
Bertsch averaged 17.3 points, 10.8 rebounds, 4.5 blocks and 2.0 steals per game while shooting 60 percent from the field.
Shes believed to be the first Santa Rosa girls basketball player to earn a Division I scholarship.
Morgan is a long, athletic post player who can really run the floor, Davis coach Jen Gross said. She can score inside and has the ability to be an amazing pursuit rebounder.
Contra Costa/Tri-Valley: Sabrina Ionescu (Miramonte-Orinda)
The spindly 5-11 sophomore guard made a huge splash last summer helping the U.S. national team win a gold medal at the FIBA Under-16 Americas Championship in Mexico. She made her mark locally for the 30-2 Matadors with back-to-back masterpieces in the CIF Open Division Northern California playoffs.
She opened with a 31-point outburst in a 94-79 win at St. Marys-Stockton before scoring 35 in a 92-87 win over Carondelet-Concord at De La Salle. That moved Miramonte into the NorCal finals against Salesian-Richmond, where she led all scorers with 23 in a season-ending defeat. She led the team with an 18.6 scoring average, broke the school record with 150 steals, and added 6.5 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game along with a total 57 three-pointers.
Its hard to pick out just one thing shes exceptional at, Miramonte coach Kelly Sopak said. Shes very good at everything. She knows how to play the game and shell be playing it for a very long time.
