Lexi Boles, Dowling Catholic (6'2" 2021 Forward/Kingdom Hoops Club)

     -Despite being saddled with foul trouble throughout, there is no denying the impact on the game when Boles is in versus when she is out of the lineup. A dominant force on the interior, Boles finished with 9 points in her limited duty. An Illinois State Women's Basketball commit.


Emma Gipple, Dowling Catholic (5'10" 2022 Forward)

     -Gipple not only came up with the play of the game, but maybe of the year. She stole a Valley inbounds pass, turned and hit a 3 pointer from about 30 feet out at the buzzer. That capped a great game for Gipple, who finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds, both game highs.


Elise Jaeger, Valley (6'0" 2024 Guard/All Iowa Attack Club)

     -Jaeger delivered a great game for the Tigers, finishing with a team-high 11 rebounds, 5 steals and 4 assists to complement her 7 point outing. Angles well off the bounce and uses size and length to absorb contact. Division 1 prospect.


Jayci Loecke, Valley (5'6" 2024 Guard)

     -One of 3 Freshman who start for Valley, along with Sophia Hope and Jaeger, Loecke finished tied for team-high scoring honors with 14, and delivered a pair of triples off the left side.


Meredith Rieker, Valley (5'9" 2022 Guard/All Iowa Attack Club)

     -The leader of Valley, Rieker again delivered for the Tigers, punching in 14 points. The Division 1 talent has paced Valley in scoring all season long with her PPG now sitting at 16 a night. Lanky Guard has a quick release on her shot, and range extends well beyond the arc.
