After a dominant season in which she was named the 3rd Region Player of the Year, Daviess County’s Adylan Ayer has been named the 2023 Owensboro Times Girls Basketball Player of the year for her efforts on both ends of the floor.

The senior guard was a key catalyst at the helm of the offense, while leading the charge as arguably the Lady Panthers best defender with multiple steals per game. Ayer led Daviess County with 19.6 ppg—surpassing the 1,000 point career mark in the process—while shooting 45.1% from the field, 34.4% from deep and 75.9% from the charity stripe to go along with 5.3 rpg.

The senior guard is set to join Maryville University after graduation, as she said she’s excited to join a coaching staff that is thoroughly excited to have her come aboard.

“When I first went there and visited it felt like home and the coaching staff was super welcoming,” Ayer said. “I could tell they wanted me to be a part of their team this season and thought I could do good things for their program.”

It will still be a bit of a bittersweet moment for Ayer though, as she has built so many meaningful relationships as a student and student athlete in volleyball and basketball during her time at Daviess County.

“I’ll always remember Daviess County,” Ayer said. “Since freshman year I’ve played volleyball and basketball here, so I’ve made a lot of memories, friends and made a lot of connections with the coaches, teammates and everything.”

That kind of bond that Ayer has built with her teammates and coaches over the years is what makes moving on the next level a little bittersweet, but she knows she’ll never forget her time as a Lady Panther and is ready to go to work at Maryville.
