Sometimes it’s all about opportunity. When a veteran player gets injured, that often opens the door for a less-experienced athlete to step into sunshine and prove that they belong. Case in point: Freshman Mya Williams of DeLaSalle. When we did our first ranking of the Prep Girls Hoops Class of 2022 last fall, the big power forward earned her way into the conversation at #45. Now, as we update the freshman class for the first time and add 25 more names to the list, it is obvious that Williams turned the injury absence of her DeLaSalle teammate Nora Francois into a showcase for her own skills and abilities. What became clear very quickly is the fact that we probably underestimated Mya the first time around. That’s why she has now risen 26 places to #19 in the class.

Williams’ teammate Savannah White also had the opportunity to shine in the absence of the injured Kiani Lockett, who is #16 in the freshman class and was slated to be the starting point guard
