This is a guard heavy class with 7 of the top 10 being guards. With the exception of one player, the other guards in this article are those in the 11-20 positions.
has been a varsity player since 7th grade and also a contributor to this Hillcrest Tuscaloosa Lady Patriot program. She has very good court vision whether its on offense making that extra pass or on defense reading passing lanes for those steals that usually ends with a made basket. Jareah has a nice first step when going to the basket and with that long lanky body at 5-11; it causes problems for a lot of defenses.
was the young threat on this Park Crossings team last season as a freshman. She is very quick and moves great within their offense and can finish in transition. Saniya is also very active on defense moving well within their zone, closing out and/or getting to board for that rebound. Look for her sophomore year to be big as she ended her freshman season on the second team for the Montgomery area.
has been to the 1A state title game for two years straight; losing in her 1st trip there as a 8th grader and winning it this year as a 9th grader. She is a guard that can handle the ball, score and a terror on defense. Serenity has been averaging double figures for her first two years of high school ball, one of the reason she is currently ranked number 2 in this class. Serenity is not afraid to attack the basket but will pull up for a trey, and she has a very good shooting percentage for the record. Look for Marion County to make another deep run into post season again this year.
is a recent transfer to Trinity Presbyterian School from Mountain Brook, and will be partnering with a fellow 2025 #14 . Francie is a smart point guard, that sees the floor well, can shoot (her shooting percentage during the regional semis was 8-9) or drive to basket, and can finish even with contact. She is very active on defense playing good deny, rebounding, blocking shots and then can run the floor well when getting back on defense. Francie has a lot of upside in her game and will be plus to this Trinity team who lost in the regional finals.
, I have been watching Iasia since 7th grade when her head coach called and asked that I come watch her play. She is very quick, plays hard and is athletic. Iasia runs the point for her Chilton County team, and will go the length of the court and is looking to score and knows how to score. She will have some new help this upcoming season with a new transfer; 2023 as her dad is the new head coach there.
