Each season leads to new names emerging on the scene or raising their stock more than anticipated. These are a handful of players who will be well positioned to breakout this season.
Witherspoon is an all-around player and the glue that holds a talented John Burroughs team together. Her defensive ability and athleticism level give the team two dynamic elements. A strong playoff performer in the past. She’s a great slasher and is set to have a big senior season. Her recruitment should continue to take shape this winter.
Sextro is a 6’1 forward who’s stepping into a bigger role for IWA moving forward. She’s going to be on of their top players this season and the increased opportunity will allow her full ability to shine. A versatile inside-outside player who does a lot of work around the rim. Her high IQ and assignment sound defensive ability are notable.
Nambara had a strong junior season and is an obvious breakout candidate for many reasons. First, she has a lot of ability and plays for a team with a strong core who made a nice run last season. She’ll be even more involved on offense due to some departures in the backcourt. An increased scoring role is in her future.
Wallace is transferring to Vashon via Centralia (IL) and the 6’1 forward has a chance to display her talents on a bigger stage. Vashon will be looking to replace some serious production and Wallace is the expected replacement. She gives them an option to throw the ball into around the basket being that she’s 6.1. An athletic, high motor forward.
Clark is perfect for a breakout list because of the fact she missed her freshman season and had a strong grassroots summer. One of the best true post prospects in 2026. She’s a strong player that can protect the rim and convert easy post touches. A great addition to an already talented Battle squad.
