Chatham County Girls’ Athlete of the Year: Gabby White


Gabby White, junior on Seaforth’s girls basketball team, is the 2023 Chatham News and Record Girls Athlete of the Year.

White, then a sophomore, averaged a 15.5-point, 10-rebound double-double during the 2022-23 season, leading Seaforth to its first state-title appearance. She recorded five straight double-doubles in the last five rounds of the 2A state playoffs.

Depite Seaforth falling short in the championship game, White was named the Mid-Carolina 1A/2A conference player of the year in March.

Through the 2023 stretch of the current season, White has picked up where she left off. Her 17.1 points per game tops all scorers in the Mid-Carolina 1A/2A conference, and White leads her team in total points, assists, rebounds and steals.
