Meet SBLive's 2021-22 All-Ventura County girls Basketball Teams: Gabriela Jaquez is Player of the Year

Jaquez led Camarillo to a No. 1 ranking in the county and the CIFSS Division 1 finals.

After most high school basketball teams in Ventura County were limited to a dozen or fewer games last season, 2021-22 meant the full return of girls preps hoops in VC. So, it's now time to unveil SBLive's All-Ventura County teams for the 2021-22 season.

The main criteria for our end-of-season awards are players' overall impacts on winning, with an emphasis on individual statistics and team success relative to strength of schedule. Any other intangible or non-statistical contributions that substantially influenced team success were considered. Awards and achievements such as all-CIF or all-league honors were taken into account as minor criteria, and players' postseason contributions were considered substantially.


Player of the Year: F Gabriela Jaquez – Camarillo – SR.

In the shocker of all shockers, we've decided to name the player coming off arguably the best season in county history as the MVP. Jaquez averaged 34.2 points, 15.7 rebounds, 4.7 steals, and 2.6 assists per game to lead the 30-3 Scorpions to the Southern Section Division 1 finals. The 5-star UCLA commit also notched career-high marks of 50% FG and 34% from downtown. Jaquez was also one of just two McDonald's All-Americans from California this season and was named co-MVP for leading the West team with 17 points.
