1 Mallory McCall, West Monona — 23.1
A top-50 prospect in PGHIA’s Class of 2021 prospect rankings, McCall might be due for a bump in the next rankings after her utterly dominant start to her sophomore season. She’s obviously scoring it very well, and shooting a blistering 60.2 percent from the floor.
2 Taryn Scheuermann, Van Buren Community — 22.9
The state’s 6th-ranked 2020 prospect, Scheuermann is having a splendid junior season with the Warriors this season. Not only is she averaging nearly 23 points per game, but she’s averaging 9.9 rebounds and an absurd 7.9 blocks per game.
3 Bailey Beckman, Panorama — 22.4
Checking in an No. 31 in the 2019 prospect rankings, Beckman has proven in the past that she’s a big-time scorer. As a freshman she averaged a team-best 12.7 points, and a sophomore 15.5 per game. Last season, she stepped it up again, going for 17.7 per game. She’s never not led her team in scoring.
4 Chloe Lofstrom, North Union — 22.3
The 22.3 points per game are great, but even better is the efficiency in which she’s scoring at. The 6-foot- junior — Iowa’s 32nd-ranked 2020 — is connecting on 60.5 percent of her field goal attempts. Nobody on this list is shooting at a higher clip.
5 Emily Lange, Wilton — 22.2
Wilton is off to a red-hot 10-1 start, this 5-foot-10 senior forward is a big reason why. The senior is torching opponents this season, and has a pretty nice player with fellow senior Kortney Drake helping her lead the charge.
6 Maddy Duncan, Sidney — 21.5
The 35th-ranked player in Iowa’s Class of 2020, Duncan has been playing exceptionally well while leading her Sidney group to a 9-1 start. A couple more wins with Duncan leading the way, and the Cowboys could find themselves ranked among the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union’s 2A top-15.
7 Emma Atwood, Central Decatur — 21.4
Ranked 26th in Iowa’s 2020 prospect rankings, Atwood is doing a good job this season to justify that stellar ranking. She’s helped lead the Cardinals to an 8-0 mark and a No. 3 ranking in Class 2A. She’s leading her team in assists, rebounds and steals as well as in scoring.
T8 Maddie Jones, South Central Calhoun — 20.5
Nobody in Iowa has made more free-throws this season than the 5-foot-3 South Central Calhoun guard. There’s two reasons why: one, she’s taken more than anyone in Class 2A, 84, and two, she’s making them at an impressive 87 percent clip.
T8 Sam Stewart, Mount Ayr — 20.5
The 36th-ranked player in Iowa’s Class of 2020, Stewart is piecing together a real nice season for the Raiders. It’s not just the high scoring, but she also leads her team in assists (3.5) and steals (4.3).
T8 Maya Johnson, Mediapolis — 20.5
Mediapolis is 10-1 this season and it’s been senior Maya Johnson and her ability to shoot it from deep that’s been leading the way. Her 44 3s made are more than anyone in Iowa, regardless of class. She makes those at a very respectable 41 percent clip.
