Flint Hill HS
A very intriguing program that has elite size in the front court. The twin sister combination of 6’2
A really good top heavy team with a collection of really good talent!the long range shooter headed to William and Mary University, is a 5’10 wing that can score from the three-point line and attacking the basket and who picked up a offer this summer that can also flat out shoot it as well you might as well call them the splash sisters with the three point shooting talent! The biggest edition to this roster is 6’0 PF/SF a division, one prospect that will probably take this team to the next level and who put up huge numbers last season at her previous high school.
