Posted On: 11/5/18 7:45 AM

As a part of our on going series of preview articles about the Mississippi Valley Conference we will talk a little about the girls in the conference doing the dirty work. Every team needs those girls that are going to hit the boards and defend. These players are the players that are the glue that holds the team together. Like they say, defense wins championships!

  • Hannah Hudson is a 5'10 senior that is Jerseyville's leading rebounder. Hannah pulled down 7.5 rebounds per game for the Panthers last year. She is definitely a leader on a team made up of many underclassmen. Hannah is excellent at getting position and is relentless in her passion to go get the ball.
  • Mae Riffel is a 5'10 senior for Highland that Coach Hamilton expects to be a big part of his first team at Highland. He says Mae is a hard nosed player that does the dirty work. She rebounds very well and he considers her to be the top defender on the team. At 5'10 and athletic Mae is capable of defending well in the post or on the wing. She brings the versatility to the team that every coach loves to have.
