The event once again featured several of the best teams and players in the state and produced many great games and moments. Here are some Sophomores and Freshman that played well in the games I was able to watch:


Katherine Palmer from Geneva played very well against a tough Nazareth team. Palmer, a 5’9’’ PG, is very calm and composed with the ball in her hands and plays tough on-ball defense.

Makiyah Williams from Trinity was a very pleasant surprise. The 5’11’’ Sophomore can play any position and has a nice mid-range game. Williams has good ball handling skills that allow her to create openings for herself. She finished with a team high 11
