Sharp averaged 22.9 points per game this season, leading Foothill to a second-place finish in the Crestview League, which isn’t that bad since Brea Olinda is in the way. Sharp had a season high of 48 points against Long Beach Wilson at the Larry Doyle/Dan Wiley Tournament of Champions. She was named the OC Sidelines player of the week the next week. Sharp also scored 43 points in a CIF-SS first-round matchup against Edison.

Bruening averaged 17.8 points a game with season-highs of 28 points against Lawndale Leuzinger. It will be tough to replace the 6-4 senior.

Hall led the Huskies to a San-Joaquin League title, a trip to the CIF-SS Open Division playoffs and a trip to the CIF So Cal Regional semifinals. She averaged 18 points and 12 rebounds per game. Hall took the hat trick in taking three tournament MVPs at the Husky Invitational, The Nike Tournament of Champions and the West Coast Jamboree. She was also the San Joaquin League MVP. Hall had season-highs of 30 points against San Gabriel Mission at the Husky Invitational, a tournament that they won, and a season-high of 18 rebounds against Sacramento St. Francis at the Tournament of Champions. Hall led the Huskies to a top-five finish in the OC Sidelines rankings and with all their main keys back, Hall should lead Fairmont to a deeper run next season.

Barbara Sitanggan, Troy, Sr.

Sitanggan had somewhat of a down year with the addition of Kianna Smith, but the sacrifice still doesn’t diminish her senior year as she led the Warriors to the So Cal Regional Semifinals. She averaged 10.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 3.3 steals. Sitanggan had season-highs of 22 points against state-champion San Bernardino Cajon at the Palisades Tournament, 12 rebounds against Agoura in the same tournament, 12 assists against Vista Murrieta in the CIF-SS Open Division consolation final, and six steals against Gardena Serra at the Redondo Battle at the Beach Tournament.
