The postseason accolades continue to stream in for the Riverdale Lady Warriors and their lone senior. Anastasia Hayes was named the Gatorade State Basketball Player of the Year for Tennessee. The state tournament MVP helped led Riverdale to a 66-59 win over Memphis Central in the championship game with her 33 points. Hayes, a Tennessee Lady Vols signee, is also a McDonald's All American and Naismith national player of the year finalist. The award has lived in Murfreesboro for the past three years as well, with former Blackman player Crystal Dangerfield taking the award each of those years.
