There are certainly several great options for the team profile when it comes to girls basketball. Defending state champs Benet Academy just won the East Suburban Catholic League and the East Aurora regional, and Naperville Central took the DVC crown for the second straight year. But Neuqua Valley takes this honor after toppling Yorkville for the team’s fifth consecutive regional championship and the 11th under head coach Mike Williams.
The team is led by their senior 1,000 point scorers, Myia Starks and Kai Moon. Seniors Megan Callahan, Jordyn Diaz and junior Megan Keefer provide outside shooting to compliment their star guards. Senior Courtlyn Smith gives Neuqua a strong low post presence along with junior Makinzie DeHaan off the bench. Sophomore Jada Harvey has returned from an ACL injury and has developed into a key contributor for the 21 win Wildcats. While the team has another regional plaque and now a team profile of the month, the Wildcats are looking to pick up more hardware as they move on to the sectional round.
