MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Déjà vu. For the second straight season, the Alabama Sports Writers Association (ASWA) has named Cold Springs standout Elizabeth Hill the Girls 2A Player of the Year in the state of Alabama. Hill earned the award a season ago after helping lead the Lady Eagles to a state title and received it once again this year after Cold Springs made a return trip to Birmingham this season, finishing as the state runner-up. Hill also earned First Team All-State honors for the second straight year.

Lady Eagles Head Coach Tammy West is proud of everything her star forward has accomplished in her time at Cold Springs and the legacy she is leaving behind.

“I’m extremely proud of her. Of course, we’ve never had a player win player of the year before but to have her win it back to back years is an incredible honor for her. It’s very well-deserved,” West said. “It’s great for our program and everyone underneath her coming up, girls and boys. They now know that you’re capable of winning that award so its great for our whole county. I’m just so proud of her.”

Hill is set to graduate this summer but is still undecided on where she’ll be taking her talents at the college level.
