Opposing coach scouting report

“Haley is a strong offensive threat. Her height is her biggest advantage, especially in a short region. She has a shot where she brings the ball back behind her head and keeps it high. It is difficult for the defense to defend her on the shot. She is a big presence in the middle of a 2-3 zone because when she stretches her arms out, she covers a big majority of the paint. Her presence intimidates many players."

20 points vs. Delta on Nov. 26.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Grace has a big advantage over many players because she is left handed. She knows how to use that to the best of her advantage. She is a strong player both in and out of the key. She can play the outside but also likes to drive to the hole or do a give and go to get in the paint. Grace is a quick defender and anticipates plays very well. She is a team-minded individual and wants to make offensive plays, but will look for the open teammate to score the basket. She is a coachable young lady with a positive attitude."
