PGH has a handful of early season standouts and stock-risers in the Dakotas. There are many more stock-risers to mention and we will do this in a series before our official rankings update hits the site. Let’s get to know some stock-rising names. More to come.
Hailey Quam Hailey Quam 5'10" | SF Wilton-Wing | 2023 State ND – Wilton-Wing – (5’10/SF/2023) – Averaging 31 points and 17 rebounds per game as of 12/23, Hailey is on a tear this season for the 5-0 Wilton-Wing squad. She has cemented herself as a top 2023 prospect in North Dakota and will rise in our next rankings update. Her game isn’t extremely flashy but she’s able to dominate games from the inside and from deep. She makes defensive plays all game long and turns them into buckets. With the ball, she’ll take it at the defense relentlessly looking to score. One of the top scorers in all of the Dakotas.
Wilton-Wing sophomore Hailey Quam has scored 99 points in three victories for the Miners so far this season, including 32 against Flasher. #NDPreps

Grace Kelly Grace Kelly 6'1" | SF Shiloh Christian | 2022 State ND – Shiloh Christian – (6’1/SG-SF-PF/2022) – After watching the Kindred/Shiloh Christian game, it looked like Grace has become far more quicker and athletic — moving surprising well laterally for 6’1. She can guard all five positions and matched up well with Abby Duchscherer Abby Duchscherer 6'1" | PG Kindred | 2022 State ND , playing tight on-ball coverage and staying with her. It’s difficult to put an offensive position on Grace as she’s versatile on that end of the court too as she can shoot the three ball.
Rachel Dahlen Rachel Dahlen 6'2" | C Devils Lake | 2022 State ND – Devils Lake – (6’2/C/2022) – Rachel is improving her stock in a massive way. She has become one of the top 2022 North Dakota prospects. Her per game is 13.5 ppg. and 8.5 rpg. with Devils Lake having a few lopsided victories. She has had an 18 point performance and a 15 rebound performance. Her size is a problem for opponents and she keeps the ball high away from the defense, both rebounding and scoring.
Camryn Krogman Camryn Krogman 5'7" | PG Mitchell | 2021 State SD – Mitchell – (5’7/CG/2021) – Camryn has really been impressive as a scorer for Mitchell this season. Scoring from three and and off-the-dribble in attack mode. She is apart of the Wolverine Basketball Academy in her off-seasons and will be climbing up the rankings board drastically in the next PGH update. At this point, she can be considered as a top 30 2021 prospect in South Dakota. She’s that well-rounded of a prospect with her defensive pressure and offensive firepower. She can play the one and the two offensively. Per source, her points scored this season by individual game are 16, 15, 19, 24, 22, and 12.
Kenadi Rising Kenadi Rising 5'10" | SG Rapid City Stevens | 2021 State SD – Rapid City Stevens – (5’10/SG-SF/2021) – Kenadi is scoring the ball in an improved fashion for Rapid City Stevens. She started out the season with 20 points each in her first two games. She also recently had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. She goes off-the-dribble and can shoot the three. A strong and aggressive wing player with solid size. She was at the PGH Dakotas Top 250 and performed the same against the top competition in the Dakotas.
Jessica Walsvik Jessica Walsvik 6'0" | C West Fargo | 2022 State ND – West Fargo – (6’0/C/2022) – Jessica plays far bigger than 6’0. She’s a great rebounder and is averaging 9.0 per game. These rebounding numbers are lower than her potential rebounding numbers as she hasn’t had a full minutes game because of blowout wins and foul trouble one of the games. She had 15 rebounds in West Fargo’s first game in full minutes.
