Hopkins’ Amaya Battle Wins Miss Basketball
Hopkins High School senior guard Amaya Battle became the fourth player in team history to be named Minnesota’s Miss Basketball when she won the award Saturday.
Battle averaged 11 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals per game in helping lead Hopkins to the state class AAAA championship in 2022.
Battle will play next year at the University of Minnesota where her older brother– Jamison Battle– plays for the Gophers’ men’s team.
She lettered six times and finished second in career assists at Hopkins.
Battle, the school’s Athena Award winner for 2022, joins Leslie Knight (2004), Nia Hollie (2016) and Paige Bueckers (2020) as Hopkins’ Miss Basketball winners.
