CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Gatorade Player of the Year recognizes excellence athletically and success off the court and in the classroom. Douglas’ Allyson Fertig took home her second Wyoming girls basketball Gatorade Player of the Year award earlier this week.

Fertig was a key cog in the Bearcats’ run to another 3A state championship this year. She averaged 22.6 points, 13.3 rebounds and 4.5 blocks per game in her senior season.

She also maintained a weighted 4.26 GPA for her studies at Douglas High School and is an accomplished artist. Her work includes drawings and paintings.

During Fertig’s time occupying the paint in Douglas, the Bearcats went 100-2 and won three state championships.

Fertig said winning Gatorade Player of the Year for a second time “means a lot.”

“It shows that I continually put in work, and it shows all that work paid off,” said Fertig. “I wouldn’t have done it without my great team, and it’s just a great honor because it shows that I represent Wyoming by being their Gatorade Player of the Year, and it’s just awesome.”

When asked what her favorite flavor of Gatorade was, Fertig said she likes green apple, and the lemon-lime is “pretty good.”

There will be another story about Fertig on Sunday with some of her reflections from her time in Douglas and what she’s looking forward to in Laramie at the University of Wyoming.
