Troutman named state AAU athlete of the year

Second consecutive Crook County volleyball player to win award


The accolades continue for Hannah Troutman.

The 2014 Crook County High School graduate, who capped off her high school athletic career with a state championship in the shot put, has now been named the Oregon AAU High School Athlete of the Year.by: LON AUSTIN/CENTRAL OREGONIAN - Hannah Troutman, right, goes up for another kill.

“She’s just had an unbelievable career,” said CCHS Head Volleyball Coach Rosie Honl. “She’s such an amazing player.”

Troutman has previously been named the Class 4A Volleyball Player of the Year (twice), a first team all state performer, the Oregonian Volleyball Player of the Year for all school classifications, the Gatorade Oregon Volleyball Player of the Year, the MaxPrepsports National Medium School player of the year, and a first team All-American.

Although Troutman had a stellar senior season in track and field, she earned the award because of her accomplishments on the volleyball court.

The 5-11 outside hitter helped lead the Cowgirls to four-consecutive state volleyball championships. She was also an integral part of the Rimrock 18U Nationals Volleyball Team, which is one of the top AAU volleyball teams in the Northwest.

During her senior year at CCHS, Troutman blasted 642 kills, had 534 digs and 82 service aces along with 46 blocks. She had a .334 hitting percentage and a kill percentage of .473. Crook County finished the season with a 37-5 record with all five losses coming against Class 6A schools.

Troutman also had a big impact on the Crook County High School track team, which finished second at state this year.

Her state-championship heave of 42-01 is the second longest shot put throw in school history. (The only longer throw was by fellow CCHS volleyball player Kathryn Kaonis earlier this year.) In addition, Troutman placed fourth at state this year in the javelin and qualified for the state meet in the discus. Earlier in the year, Troutman set the school record in the javelin with a toss of 137-02.

Troutman has signed a letter of intent to compete in both volleyball and track and field at Oregon State University in Corvallis.

The State AAU High School Athlete of the Year award is given to the top male or female athlete in the state who competes in sanctioned AAU events. AAU sports include boys and girls basketball, track and field, volleyball, karate, swimming and diving.

Fellow CCHS graduate Makayla Lindburg won the award in 2013.

“I was just thrilled to get back to back AAU player of the state award winners,” Honl said. “I was surprised that Hannah got it after Makayla got it last year. That’s two in a row and they both got rings.”
