She is the first player to ever receive the honor twice.
Calling her the best two-way player in the county, the newspaper noted that,
“behind the well-rounded play and leadership of Fattal during the winter, the Griffins climbed as high as third in the county rankings and reached the CIF-SS Division 1 quarterfinals.
For her efforts, Fattal is again The Register and OCVarsity's player of the year. Fattal, the county player of the year as a junior, becomes Orange County's first two-time player of the year in the 16-year history of the award.”
In November, the US junior player announced her decision to play for the UCLA Bruins.
