Anna Shaughnessy (MPC Swish / Bishop Feehan 2018) - It was a weekend of getting acclimated against strong competition for the Swish, who lost five players and added four new key players from last spring's dominant squad. Although the team was inconsistent in Springfield, the one constant in every game was Anna Shaughnessy's dominance. Shaughnessy shot an extremely high percentage, displayed her much improved outside touch and ran the floor with pride. She reached double figure scoring in each game and was a major contributor on the glass.
Rachael Johnson (MT Elite / Coyle & Cassidy 2019) - It's been a great month for Norton's Rachael Johnson. She was arguably the most dominant player in the 2015 Select Hoops Showcase (8th Grade All-Star Game) a month ago, displaying her ability to get to the rack, knock down shots and her nonstop motor. In workouts with older girls, Johnson has done more than hold her own with her toughness, offensive craftiness and willingness to box out on every shot that goes up. Johnson continued her hot early spring by being named MVP of the Springfield Basketbull Tournament as her MT Elite AAU team beat the Bay State Jaguars in the championship. She and her AAU teammates at MT Elite made a nice early season statement with the victory.
Emily Miccile (MT Elite / Bishop Feehan 2017) - As a sophomore, Miccile was a key cog in Bishop Feehan's deep MIAA South Sectional run as a starter for the Shamrocks and she appears poised to build on that this spring for MT Elite. In workouts, Miccile has been dominant on both ends. She is always in control, plays extremely disciplined defense and can score inside or outside. Miccile has an extremely high IQ and almost always makes the right play offensively, whether its snapping a full court lead pass, slicing through the lane for a bucket or making an extra pass in the half court. Her upside on defense is limitless as she can guard every position. Look forward to seeing her and her MT Elite teammates on the circuit.
