1 Megan Meyer, Mason City — 24.8
It should come as no surprise that the state’s third-ranked 2019 and future Iowa Hawkeyes guard Megan Meyer is leading the way in Class 4A. Her 24.8 points per game are tops by a wide-margin. Her 24 made 3s are fifth-best in the state. She also leads the Mohawks in assists, steals and rebounds.
2 Katie Keitges, Knoxville — 21.6
Keitges leads her 8-1 Panthers in nearly every conceivable category, not the least of which is scoring. She’s been at this scoring thing for awhile now; as a freshman Keitges averaged 14 points per game, last season she netted 19.9 per game, and she’ll likely better that this season.
3 Megan Witte, Lewis Central — 20.6
As a sophomore, Witte averaged 11.5 points a game and was second-fiddle to then-senior Maegan Holt, This season she’s leading the charge for the Titans. The 6-foot-1 forward has her Lewis Central squad out to a 7-0 start, and ranked No. 6 in the state.
4 Ella Skinner, Bishop Heelan — 20.1
The 11th-ranked Crusaders are led by this 6-foot post, who’s not only scoring at a high clip, but doing so with some efficient 56.4 percent shooting. Even more impressive is her free-throw line prowess, she’s made 36 of her 43 attempts this season.
T5 Jordan Cunningham, Dallas Center-Grimes — 19.9
This 5-foot-10 guard has been dynamic all season for the Mustangs, and was especially so in a Dec. 18th win over Indianola when she dropped 31 points on 12-18 shooting. Her 42.6 percent 3-point shooting is impressive and she’s also leading her team in rebounding and blocks.
T5 Macy Harris, Grinnell — 19.9
A 5-foot-7 senior, Harris is not only scoring the ball with the best of them, but she’s dishing out 4.4 assists per game. She’s a big reason the Tigers have raced out to an 8-0 start and are currently ranked No. 4 in the state.
7 Kayba Laube, Marion — 18.9
The efficiency that this future Northern Iowa Panthers guard is shooting the deep ball is phenomenal, she’s made a state-high 35 3s this season, but has done so on considerably fewer shots than anyone even near her on that list. Her 50.7 percent 3-point shooting makes her one of the best scoring threats in Iowa.
T8 Grace Boffeli, North Scott — 17.6
The 6-foot-2 post has been instrumental in the 9-1 start for the Lancers. Not only is she a top scorer, but she’s also one of the state’s best rebounders, her 9.8 boards per game are sixth-best in Iowa. She might be the best scoring/rebounding threat in Class 4A.
T8 Avery Fried, Bondurant-Farrar — 17.6
Her scoring has helped the Bluejays to a 6-3 start this season, and she’s just a sophomore. Sometimes younger players, even when scoring big, tend to struggle from the floor, not Fried, she’s shooting 55 percent from the floor and 50 percent from deep.
10 Madison Dreckman, LeMars — 17.5
LeMars is No. 7 in the state right now, look no further than Dreckman’s success to see a big reason why. She’s scoring it well, and also leading the Bulldogs with four assists per game. Her 5.4 rebounds per game is tops on her team, too.
