MAGGIE BARNETT

Dogged by injuries that prevented her from improving on last year's all-county performance, Barnett was still the focal point for opposing defenses. She helped the Royals to the Division III-AA section final, averaging 16.3 points and 4.2 assists.

MONIKA JACKLEY

Valencia

*--*

Sr. 6-0 C

*--*

A dominant force inside, Jackley was a handful for most opponents. Among the county leaders in scoring and rebounding, she averaged 21.8 points, 12.1 rebounds and played a central role as Valencia (23-4) had its most successful season.

WHITNEY JONES

San Clemente

*--*

Sr. 5-10 F

One of the county's best defenses benefited from the long arms and great anticipation skills of Jones, who averaged 4.6 steals. However, her team's success was due largely to her development into an offensive force who averaged 14.8 points and nine rebounds.
