Seton Catholic senior forward Julia Barcello was named the Gatorade Player of the Year for Arizona this week.
The 6-foot Barcello averaged 14 points, 11.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.2 blocks per game in leading a young Seton Catholic squad to its third state championship in four years.
A two-time first team All-State player, she also holds school records for career rebounds and blocked shots.
She's also maintained a 3.9 grade point average and is a student mentor and math tutor at the school.
She'll now be eligible for the national player of the year award to be given out later this spring.
