Olathe East High School junior Haley Hanson was announced Wednesday as the Gatorade Kansas Girls Soccer Player of the Year.
Hanson, who scored 13 goals with 16 assists this spring, is the first player in Hawks’ history to win the honor, which recognizes the top player in the state based on athletics excellence, along with academic excellence and character.
Hanson, a 5-foot-6 midfielder who has committed to Nebraska, helped Olathe East, 14-3-1, reach the Class 6A state quarterfinals.
She has maintained a 3.5 grade-point average and is active on student council.
