2018-19 ALL-USA Girls Athlete of the Year: Azzi Fudd, St. John's College

By

Azzi Fudd, the sophomore basketball sensation, dominated throughout the season. She led St. John’s to a 25-1 record while averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game en route and was named the ALL-USA Girls Basketball Player of the Year.

She — and her voters — had a little bit of magic left this summer. With the clock ticking on the Athlete of the Year poll, Fudd’s vote count nearly tripled.

After entering Friday with 1,670 votes, she finished with 4,929, which was 56.66% of the final total.

Fudd was voted the ALL-USA Girls Athlete of the Year.

Kilty, from River Falls (Wisconsin), finished with 3,097 votes, good for 35.6% of the final pol.

In third place was Rylee Rader, the 2020 volleyball star on undefeated Assumption (Kentucky).

With 415 kills and a .553 hitting percentage — only tallying 34 errors all season — the ALL-USA Volleyball Player of the Year led Assumption to 43 wins and the championship.

Fudd is recovering from an offseason ACL and MCL tear and, as of July 2, did not have a timetable to return to game action.

The ALL-USA Girls Coach of the Year poll will conclude Tuesday.
