5 Players to Watch:

(schools are as of last year – unless PGH is 100% certain that a player has enrolled elsewhere)

Grace Mills – Garfield

Jenna Smith – Garfield

Kristen Gill – Valley Christian

Hannah Mang – Lake Center Christian

Rachel Neer – Southeast

 

4 Thoughts:

Southeast enjoyed a magical 2018-2019 season. If they want to repeat that success and win another league championship, they will need to replace the production lost by graduation – this includes last season’s player of the year Andrea Radcliff and 1st-team All-League performer Shelby Morehead. This process with start with Rachel Neer – another All-League kid.

Garfield – a traditional PTC power for Aaron Gilbert – looks primed and ready to return to the top of the conference. The G-Men return a host of talent from last year’s group, including Grace Mills, Jenna Smith, Sarah Seaman, Samantha Miller and Emma Lawrence. Smith’s continued growth could be the key Garfield this winter.
