Euless Trinity senior guard Trinity Oliver wrapped up a pretty good 2016. First she was named district MVP last season, and the Star-Telegram super team Player of the Year.

Oliver signed her national letter of intent in November to play at Baylor in college, and just hit the 2,000-career point milestone a few weeks ago with a career-high 40 points.

She finished the year by helping the Trojans to a fourth-place finish in the Duncanville Sandra Meadows Classic and was named to the all-tourney team.

In a poll on Twitter with fellow Star-Telegram players of the year also on the ballot, Oliver was voted 2016 dfwVarsity Female Athlete of the Year. She received 49 percent of the votes (1,179 total).

Others in the poll included Azle’s Sam Bradley (softball), Aledo’s Maddie Goings (volleyball) and Fort Worth South Hills’ Esmie Gonzales (soccer).
