Breckyn Werner, a sophomore on the varsity girls basketball team at Portland High School, has been chosen as the winner of the J-Dubbs Signature Subs/Portland Beacon Student-Athlete of the Month award for January 2020.
Werner was nominated by Portland coach Jason Haid.
In his nomination of Werner, Haid said Werner “has been instrumental in setting the tone for our outstanding defense (3 blocks per game and 2.4 steals per game) and was our 2nd leading rebounder 4.5 per game. Breckyn was also 2nd in scoring averaging 11pts per game and led the team in ft (free throw) % for the month of January.”
Werner was also on the varsity squad last year as a freshman and she saw significant playing time.

Nominations may be made by a member of their high school coaching staff, athletic director, principal, or a school recognized student government organization at his/her school. Nominations are also accepted from The Portland Beacon contributing writers.
