was an efficient offensive player all around for the Waterloo West Wahawks, averaging 22.6 PPG on 52.6% shooting, 34.3% from the three point line, 76.4% from the free throw line, and tallying up 135 assists last season. Scoring a total of 587 points throughout 26 games placed her second last year in overall scoring for the 5A class, while averaging 5.2 APG placed her first overall in assists in 5A. The shifty point guard can score in anyway that her team needs while coming down the stretch in big games. With being a good controller of tempo and pace, Halli will look to return to the state championship game where last year the Wahawks ended up coming just short to Johnston High School. Finishing the season with a 23-2 record overall, 14-1 in conference.
Halle Vice looks to repeat as conference champions with Pleasant Valley High School for her senior season. After finishing last season 22-3 overall, 17-1 in conference, it maybe difficult to finish much better then that during the 22′-23′ season but they will sure try. Vice, the athletic forward, is coming off of a season where she did a little bit of everything for her team. Averaging 19.9 PPG on 49.3% shooting, including 37.5% from 3, and 72.4% from the line. Not to mention grabbing 6.6 RPG, and 1.8 APG. This season will be a different look for Pleasant Valley as they only return 2 starters with some light bench experience. This will make it a little bit more difficult for Halle in all aspects of the game as now she will be the primary focus for other teams. With the work that she puts in though, I won’t be surprised if she puts up even better numbers in the short future.
is not defined by just her game on the offensive end but on the defensive end as well. Being a leader on both ends of the floor, the Oklahoma basketball commit sees the game differently than most at her age. Being able to switch from guard to big on defense, while being a mismatch on offense puts the Waterloo West Wahawks back in a position this year to make another big state ran once playoffs begin. Coming off of a year where Williams averaged 19.7 PPG on 52.6% shooting, 32.3% from three, 6.7 RPG, and 4.0 APG, the star forward is a complete player, being able to score efficiently, and in a multiple of ways, it comes to no surprise that anyone having to guard this Waterloo West team will have a long night in front of them. When people talk about the best girls back court in high school basketball this season, it maybe , and but only time will tell.
is a solid shooting guard, with the ability to put the ball on the floor under pressure and get a bucket when needed. Averaging 18.4 PPG, including shooting 70% from the line, paired with 6.9 RPG, and 4.5 APG last season for the Iowa City Liberty Lightning, she impacted every game she played in. After finishing the season 12-11 overall, 8-7 in conference, Barney has worked all summer to expand her game and bring a boost for her senior year. With a stacked class of freshman coming in, mixed with some experience returning, the Lighting will not be an easy out this season for other teams but instead a challenge wether they play at home or away.
was over shadowed last season with the Southeast Polk Rams because of a sub par record of 13-10 overall, 2-5 in conference, but this year, that won’t be the case. Averaging 17.6 PPG on 49.4% shooting, 45% from three, and snagging 4.8 RPG as a junior, the Drake basketball commit is coming off of a great AAU season with All Iowa Attack and has been working to master her craft on the court for the upcoming 22′-23′ season. It will be interesting to see if Dailey can build on the foundation that was set in place last season with this Rams team and become more successful, individually and more-so, overall as the season unfolds.
