Season highlights: Turner wrapped up a lengthy four-year varsity career for Eaglecrest as she appeared in 92 games and played in the postseason in each season as well. Coach Robby Gabrielli needed the steady play of his senior and she provided that, though her statistical numbers fell slightly across the board. Turner averaged a team-high 7.3 points per game this season and boosted her career total to better than 700 points with help from a big start that saw her score in double figures four times in the first six games and tally a season-high 16 points on two occasions. She added 2.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals and team-leading 1.7 assists per game on her way to All-Centennial League honors. Turner, who was voted an alternate and replaces Regis Jesuit’s Sidney Weigand, appears in the A-Town All-Star Game for a second time.
