(West Plains) – The Springfield News-Leader has named Andi Haney of West Plains as their Female Athlete of the Year.
Haney, who graduated with honors from West Plains High School this spring, finished her career as the leading scorer in school history and led the Lady Zizzers to another appearance in the Missouri state playoffs.
She describes the process used by the Springfield newspaper to determine the winners.
The award combines athletic achievement with community involvement and academics.
Andi says the award is a positive reflection on West Plains.
Haney will play collegiately this fall at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas.
