Hill gets county girls Player of the Year nod
Apr 22, 2012 - By Randy Tucker, Sports Writer
The Wyoming Indian girls were tall and young this season. Head coach Aleta Moss worked with her freshmen and sophomores throughout the year to improve their play in the paint and their ability to handle and deliver pressure.
What Moss didn't have to worry about was a leader on the floor.
Senior Anneshia Hill is this year's selection as the Fremont County Player of the Year. The 5-4 guard did everything for Wyoming Indian this season. She paced the Lady Chiefs in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and all the intangibles that can't be quantified on a cold stat sheet.
Hill played much larger than her short stature would seem to allow. She penetrated defenses and dished the ball well to the young Wyoming Indian front wall and paced the Chiefs on the defensive end of the floor as well.
An all-around player, Hill could hit the trey as easily as she could drive through tough defenses for layups against players six to eight inches taller.
Hill is a Class 2-A all-state selection this year and a familiar player over the last four seasons for the Chiefs.
Hill's work at the point will continue to pay dividends long after she graduates in the improved play of the youngsters surrounding her this season.
