DePaul Signee Harry is Tops in Missouri

DePaul women's basketball signee Katherine Harry has been named the 2008-09 Gatorade Missouri Girls Basketball Player of the Year.

A 6-3 senior center for Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, Missouri, Katherine Harry averaged 14.7 points and 8.4 rebounds for the Bruins this season.

Harry led the Bruins to the Class 5 state quarterfinals this spring.

As a junior, Katherine led Rock Bridge to the state title. She averaged 12.6 points and 8.1 rebounds while earning first team All-State honors and in the state finals, she finished the game with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Harry was a four-time All-District honoree.

"Katherine Harry is a strong, live and explosive post player with guard skills that can both play on the block and lead our fast break," said DePaul coach Doug Bruno.

The future Blue Demon is now one of 50 finalists to win the Gatorade National Girls Basketball Player of the Year award to be announced later in the month.
