Cherry Creek's Jana Van Gytenbeek sets career assists record


Ryan Casey, chsaanow.com, February 6, 2020

Cherry Creek senior Jana Van Gytenbeek has had one of the best careers of any girls basketball player in Colorado history.

Last season, her last-second shot won the Class 5A title for her Bruins. The Stanford recruit is a two-time first-team all-state selection, and is the reigning 5A player of the year.

And on Wednesday night, Van Gytenbeek set the state record for career assists, breaking a mark that had stood for nearly 24 years.

Best In State: Jana Van Gytenbeek Talks State Titles & Stanford

Romi Bean, denver.cbslocal.com, January 20, 2020

Jana Van Gytenbeek is the reigning Class 5A Player of the Year – and that’s just the one honor in a long list of accolades for the senior point guard at Cherry Creek High School.

In the 2019 5A State Championship Game, Van Gytenbeek hit a floating bank shot in the final seconds of the game to break a tie with the heavily-favored Grandview Wolves. The shot helped lift Creek to its first ever girls basketball state title.
“To be part of that team was the coolest thing ever. We all wanted it. We’ve always wanted to do it for Creek and for our community,” Jana said.
