Last week was the 42nd annual State Farm Holiday Classic hosted at multiple high schools and gymnasiums across Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. Sixteen teams participated in the Large School Girls bracket and here are those that stood out to me in the time I was able to watch this group:

2023 Katie Barger Katie Barger 5'8" | PG Bloomington | 2023 State IL , 5’8” Guard, Bloomington

A well-rounded Point Guard who is a constant playmaking threat with the ball in her hands, Barger showed that she can do a little bit of everything from the lead Guard position. She is a more than capable ball-handler who likes to push the tempo with her speed and quick decision making in the open floor. Katie is a three-level scorer who knocks down jumpers from anywhere regularly and doesn’t shy away from contact when finishing strong at the basket.

2022 Isabella Finnegan Isabella Finnegan 5'11" | SF Mother McAuley | 2022 State IL , 5’11” Guard, Mother McAuley

Finnegan is a skilled Shooting Guard who provides good versatility with her ball-handling skills and scoring ability in the lane. The Indiana State commit shows great confidence with her jump shot from beyond the three-point line and scores at a high rate around the rim. Isabella is a tough defender who guards multiple positions successfully
