Luray High School senior guard Emilee Weakley has been named the Region B “Player of the Year” in girls basketball for a third-straight year. She lead the Bulldogs to the Region B tournament championship after scoring 110 points over three games last week. That followed 97 points over three games in the Bull Run District tournament the previous week.

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.

Currently, Weakley has 2,504 high school career points and has signed her national letter of intent to play for Div-II Shepherd University next season.

The Bulldogs (25-2) continue their “road to a repeat” on Friday night, as they host Brunswick County (17-6) in the quarterfinal round of the VHSL 2A state tournament. Tip-off 6:30 p.m.
