We begin with Francis Howell guard Danielle Berry. It was quite the season for the Viking senior. She averaged over 15 points a game, and became the school’s all-time leading scorer. She did more than just score too, she averaged over 4 assists and 5 rebounds a game and led the Vikings to their first ever Final Four appearance.
We stay in the G-A-C for our next selection, St. Charles’ Gabby Walker. The Pirates’ senior came up just shy of averaging a double double for the season. Averaging 18 points and 9 rebounds a game. She leaves St. Charles as the best player in the program’s history. She will play at Lindenwood in college.
Next is Kirkwood’s Jordan Roundtree. The Mizzou signee picked up the slack when star Lauryn Miller went down with an ACL injury. She averaged just under 20 points a game and helped lead the Pioneers to a second place finish in class 5.
We head to Parkway North for our next selection, Mya Johnson. Johnson stepped up big time when superstar and McDonald's All-American, Alecia Sutton went down with an injury. The 6 foot senior scored 13 points and 8 rebounds a game, leading the Stars to the quarterfinals in class 5
Our lone member from Illinois is Edwardsville’s Makenzie Silvery. The Tigers’ guard did a little bit of everything. She averaged over 16 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists as a game helping Edwardsville to a 30-2 season and an appearance in the Super Sectionals.
And last but not least our player of the year, MICDS forward Taylor Baur. Baur averaged a staggering 20 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks a game for MICDS and led the Rams to a second place finish in class 4. She was named the Missouri Gatorade Player of the Year and will play next year at Princeton.
