While everyone tries to make predictions about who the top teams and players in the state based on previous performance and analysis, there are inevitably some surprises each season that seem to come out of nowhere. Players who have worked hard to improve their game step up and end up becoming some of the top players in the state. This past Saturday at Bullitt East was the first chance for some of these players to show out, so let's see who has stepped up their game heading into this season.
Sofia Allen, Scott- In the absence of star player Mya Meredith, Allen took on much of the responsibility that was left by this major hole.

Her strong all-around game was very impressive and will prove important as she looks to be a major part of the Lady Eagles' gameplan this season.
Malayia Lewis, Scott- On a quite foul heavy day, nobody was better able to take advantage of some early season sloppiness than Lewis. The junior drew foul after foul by getting to the rim
