Fittingly, the pair both garnered their respective league's top honor. Napier was named the Santa Cruz Player of the Year and Benedicto shared co-Liberty League Player of the Year honors with Leah Purvis of Buckley.
Napier enjoyed a wildly successful season and leaves Bell-Jeff as one of the most decorated basketball players in program history. Earlier this week, she earned her third All-CIF Southern Section first-team honor. During the season, she was nominated as a McDonald's All-American.
Napier averaged 21.7 points a game to go along with nearly three assists and three steals a game.
"Just her presence in a lot of games was the reason why we were able to have as successful season as we had," Bell-Jeff Coach Jaclyn Johnson said. "No one had anyone who could guard her in league."
Earning first-team all-league accolades for the Guards were seniors Jasmine Smith (16 points, 10 rebounds) and Averie Guzman (six points, five rebounds). The pair, along with Napier, are the last holdovers from a Bell-Jeff team that won Southern Section and state championships in 2009.
Making the second team for Bell-Jeff was senior Kiah Jones and junior Tiffany Kho.
The No. 6 Guards (24-6) advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA semifinals where they fell to No. 7 Gardena Serra, 71-54. The team also won a game in the Division IV state playoffs against Los Angeles Baptist, 70-60, before falling St. Bernard, 65-51.
Benedicto led a team that made history by advancing to the semifinals in the postseason, earning a state playoff bid for the first time and notching two victories in state competition.
Benedicto, who earned second-team All-CIF honors, averaged 11.7 points and 5.6 rebounds a game.
"She is the person teams really, really prepared for," Providence Coach Andrew Bencze said. "She just worked so hard under the boards and she was a very tough player to contain."
