Tori Baker   Basketball Class of 1987

Tori Baker's accomplishments as a basketball player are legendary. Tori played for the Falcons from 1984 to 1987, a three-year starter on the Varsity team. Tori was only 5'10", but she could do it all -- shoot, drive, rebound, defend. Tori averaged twenty-three points per game during her career, broke the 1,000 point mark in three seasons, and is still the Hanford High School girls' career scoring leader with 1,367 points.

In 1985-86, the Lady Falcons went a perfect 27-0 and won the AA State Championship led by legendary Coach Jim Murphy. Tori was the captain of that team, the Most Valuable Player of the State Tournament, and was an All-State first team selection.

After Tori's landmark career at Hanford High School, she received a basketball scholarship to the University of Oregon. Tori had a major part in making Hanford High School girls' basketball program a perrenial State power. And her life-long goal of being the best that she was capable of being became a reality for her during her senior season when she was selected as a High School All-American.
