East Coast Index  Girl’s Report

June 19th @ Spooky Nook


The Girl talent pool was the best I have seen in my 23 years of covering the event. Hannah Swenski (Big Spring) and Desiree Gaeckler (Oyster Bay NY) were solid inside and out providing great versatility. Anna Audley from Bishop Guilfoyle had a variety of moves that were tough to stop in the post. Finally, Gabriella Yodice of Msgr. McClancey in New York was a solid finisher and 3 point shooter. My best one/two punch from the same school goes to the dynamic duo of Madison Shetrom and Amber Newberry of Altoona High. Break out the triangle and 2 for these two young ladies that were outstanding offensive threats! Here are my “Top” players for the event. I will see you August 14th at the Nook!
