St. John’s sophomore guard Azzi Fudd was named the Gatorade girls’ basketball national player of the year Tuesday, adding one of the most prestigious awards in high school sports to her growing list of accolades.

Fudd, the reigning All-Met Player of the Year, was given the award in a surprise ceremony at her school in Northwest Washington. Family, friends and coaches gathered in a hallway to wait for her, and Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne presented the trophy.
