Choctaw junior Ana Llanusa doesn't hesitate when asked who the best athlete is in her family.
“My sister will probably have to say otherwise — Jonah, too — but might as well say myself,” Llanusa said.
Llanusa comes from a family of athletes. Her father Tony wrestled at Oklahoma. Her mom was a gymnast and two-time Miss Oklahoma.
Llanusa's older brother Jonah was also a football and baseball star at Choctaw. He now plays football at Navy. Her little sister is also on the Choctaw basketball team.
But Ana has earned a lot of attention on the court. This season, she continued her dominance in leading Choctaw to a third straight state tournament appearance and earn a spot on The Oklahoman's Big All-City team.
