The class of 2018 has fulfilled its duties and is now poised to be discharged back into society. Our mission is to follow high school varsity ball and AAU ball beginning the summer after the 8th grade. So we first saw the class of 2018 when some of the more precocious among them started getting varsity minutes, but mostly in the summer of 2013.

Just for the record, that summer we published our 1st ranking of the class of 2018, and the top 10 went like this: 1) Carmen Backes, 2) Kayla Mershon, 3) Sydney Stapleton, 4) Maesyn Theisen, 5) Christianna Carr, 6) Katey Brattland, 7) Sam Haiby, 8) Zoe Hardwick, 9) Erica Hicks, 10) Audrey Gadison. Megan Walstad was #19. Mary Burke, Rachel Hakes and Maddie Loder were on a watch list below our top 50. Yokie Lee, Morgan Hill, Emma Grothaus, Heaven Hamling and Krystal Carlson were nowhere among the 63 players we listed at that time.

Think about that! 2 of our top 10 today, at the end of the 2018’s high school careers, were in our top 10 5 years ago. Just 2! And just 2 others were among our top
