In our final part of the Division 1 bound seniors list, we highlight 6 more 2019’s that will be moving onto the next level. The class of 2019 will see 23 student-athletes playing Division 1 basketball this next fall and each one of these girls has worked years and years to accomplish this dream. You can also read part 1, part 2 and part 3.
Division 1 bound, part 4:
2019 5’8 PG Cassidy Gardner (Prairie HS) – Most schools would say they’d love to have the starting point guard on a state championship team. Portland State University got themselves one in Cassidy Gardner! PSU is getting a high IQ point guard that can really get hot from the 3-line. She has solid handles and she distributes the ball to her teammates well, balancing scoring and passing.
2019 6’0 PF Mae Bryant (Eastlake HS) – Grand Canyon University headed up to the pacific northwest and found a diamond in the rough. Mae flew under the radar for some time, but she saved her best for last, helping Eastlake to a 4A state championship. She is a high level athlete that is just scratching the surface of her potential. She should help GCU take a step forward in the Western Athletic Conference.
2019 6’0 SF Olivia Skibiel (Jackson HS) – The star of Jackson High School has signed to North Dakota State University. NDSU is getting a tall skill player that can hurt the defense in a variety of ways on the offensive end. She can shoot the three or pull up from the mid-range. NDSU head coach Maren Walserth and the university have agreed to part ways, so that will be something to track. Once a Letter of Intent is signed though, it has to be honored by that university, no matter who the new head coach will be.
2019 6’0 SF Alexyss Newman (Millenium HS) – Alexyss spent her senior season in Arizona, but she is a Washington girl and played with Tree of Hope’s 17u team in the club season. She is a versatile wing player that should be able to do a little bit of everything for Eastern Washington University at the next level.
2019 5’7 PG Madison Dubois (Woodinville HS) – One thing that Madison Dubois has done since entering high school is win. Woodinville’s best finish was second place in her junior year, but when you look at win/loss record, her accomplishments in high school were outstanding. Seattle University is getting a high IQ point guard that is a willing passer, but can also score as needed.
2019 5’7 G Kelsey Lenzie (West Seattle HS) – The shooter from the west side signed with the University of Portland in the fall of 2018. Portland Head Coach Cheryl Sorenson was fired, but Michael Meek was recently announced as the new leader of the program. Kelsie is still locked in to play for the Pilots and looks to help them stretch the floor on offense. *Feature image
