Teams to Watch
A traditionally strong program, Marion Local looks to keep the wins coming with some quality players coming back this season. Lindsey Koenig is a 5-10 2023 who is long and athletic, good frame and can control the paint. She moves well and her wingspan causes issues for the defender. Avae Unrast is a 5-7 2025 who looks to take on a bigger role this season with the Flyers. She has great potential to breakout this season, has good handles and sees the floor well.
After coming off a volleyball state runner-up, the Cavaliers hope the success carries over to the hardwood in a very tough conference. Fortunately they return 6-3 2023, who is headed to the University of Dayton. She is the force that makes them go, very solid at the rim, can rebound and bring her game outside. Jenna Leugers is a guard who adds a nice balance with Riley for a strong offensive attack. She is an excellent leader with a solid basketball IQ.
Gabrielle Stober is such a complete player, the 2023 can do it all. She is a very solid point guard with good handles and can find the open player. Can play in transition and score at the rim, or hit from the three. Love her intensity and a player who can take over a game.is a 2023 who is a fierce rebounder as her 31 boards in a game is a school record.
The Wildcats have some good quality players returning although none of them are bigtime scorers, they are good contributors in various ways. Katie McClurg is a 5-5 2023 who is a good set shooter and does the things a PG is supposed to do. She can control things and will have to run the show. Morgan Sparks is a 5-7 2023 who will play the off-guard spot and is their main defender. Kaycie Albers is a 5-9 2023 who returns as their leading scorer who can score from the corners with her feet set around the arc. Lilly Barhorst is a 6-foot 2023 who is athletic as they come. Offers coming in for volleyball, she can jump overtop defenders for the rebound.
