The freshman class in Washington is shaping up to be strong early on and there have been multiple college prospects in the 2023 class that have played big roles for top contending teams. It is no easy feat for first year players to have a big impact on varsity and it is even more impressive when someone can do it at a true state contending team. Here are several freshman that are doing just that!

Bethel HS

Record: 20-0

RPI Ranking: #1 (3A)

Impact Freshman: 2023 5'9 SF Alyssa Smith has come and instantly turned a strong state contending team from a year ago to the number one ranked team this season. She brings some versatility at the wing position, as well as toughness, rebounding and hustle plays on defense. How she performs on the big stage at the Tacoma Dome will play a big role in determining how Bethel does when the competition tightens up.

Eastside Catholic HS

Record: 18-1

RPI Ranking: #2 (3A)

Impact Freshmen: The list for this team is long as expected with 2023s 5'9 PG Mjracle Sheppard, 6'0 SF Imbie Jones, 5'5 PG
