Webb was also named the Class 6-A Player of the Year, which adds to earlier being named the Gatorade Alabama Player of the Year.
She posted 29 points and 22 rebounds in the state championship game, giving Hoover a 66-55 win over Blount. It marked the third Alabama title for Webb, after helping Hoover to the 2012 title and leading Brewbaker Tech to the Class 4A championship in 2011.
For her career, Webb scored 1,716 points and pulled down 1,591 rebounds, good for averages of 13.1 and 12.1 per game, respectively.
