Marshall County High School's Lauren March capped off her stellar prep basketball career Saturday in Murfreesboro, winning the 2009 Class AA Miss Basketball award.

March was one of three finalists for the player of the year award along with Chassidy Fussell from Obion Central and Lashay Davis from Upperman, who won the award in 2008.

March broke the all-time MCHS scoring record this season, helping the Tigerettes to a 30-1 record. The MTSU signee has been named to every All-District and All-Region team since her sophomore year and was named the State Tournament MVP after the Tigerettes won the Class AA title last year over Milan.
