The Herald's All-Metro Girl's Basketball Team: Los Fresnos' Gallardo named top offensive player

Posted: Saturday, March 23, 2019 11:01 pm

At first glance, fans will notice Los Fresnos’ Ari Gallardo doesn’t say very much with her stoic presence and an always-focused way about her.

Put the basketball in her hands, however, and she can get buckets with the best of them in the area, which is why she is not only the Lady Falcons’ top offensive option, but also has been chosen as The Brownsville Herald’s 2019 All-Metro Offensive Player of the Year.

Coming into her junior season, Gallardo said she was itching for success and decided she wanted to try to take it into her own hands to earn it and make an impression.

“ (Earning this award) is great for me and my future so other coaches can really see what I have,” she said. “I just put my mindset to intensity. I just really wanted to win every single game this year so I went out and put up as many shots as I could, which was more than in previous years. The team played well together, that’s for sure. We communicated and just worked together really well.”
