2011 - 12 Miss Basketball
Marissa Janning - Watertown-Mayer
Janning, a crafty, playmaking point guard and one of
Minnesota's all-time leading scorers, has been announced as
the winner of the state's most prestigious individual award
for girls basketball.
The Creighton University recruit is fourth all-time in
Minnesota girls basketball scoring with more than 3,500
career points in her six-year varsity career.
"When I started my career a long time ago, I didn't know
this kind of award even existed," said Janning, who played
in the senior all-star series at Macalester College.
"This is a great way to end my career," she said. "It was a
great group of girls (as finalists). I am so honored to be
recognized this way."
The other finalists were Hill-Murray's Tessa Cichy, Eden
Prairie's Jackie Johnson, White Bear Lake's Alexis Foley,
Kali Peschel of Sauk Centre and Sydney Coffey of Hopkins.
