Luray High School senior guard Emilee Weakley has been named the Bull Run District “Player of the Year” in girls basketball for a third-straight year. She lead the Bulldogs to the Bull Run tournament championship after scoring 97 points over three games.
On Jan. 14, Weakley became only the 36th player in the history of the Virginia High School League (VHSL) to surpass 2,000 career points. Earlier in the season, she became Luray’s all-time leading scorer, surpassing the likes of Bridgewater College Hall of Famer Craig Tutt (currently the principal at Springfield Elementary) and the current women’s head basketball coach at Eastern Mennonite University, Jenny Logan Posey. Both Posey and Tutt surpassed 1,800 points while at LHS.
Weakley has signed her national letter of intent to play for Div-II Shepherd University next season.
The Bulldogs (22-2) continue their “road to a repeat” on Tuesday night, as they host Stuarts Draft (6-11) in the quarterfinal round of the Region B tournament. Tip-off 6:30 p.m.
