Name me some 7th graders who can go toe-to-toe with Jade Hill and not get annihilated. I promise you, it’s going to be a very short list! On Thursday night at Minneapolis South, that’s exactly what 7th grade guard Laura Hauge of St. Croix Lutheran did as the Crusaders knocked off the Tigers 45-43 in a thoroughly entertaining contest. Hill, who has long been considered the top point guard in the class of 2021, still got her points and effectively ran the show for South but Hauge more than held her own with quick feet, quick hands and the kind of natural athleticism that makes players special. Color me impressed.
