Davenport Shootout Recap

Grand Rapids, MI - Over 24 of west Michigan's top high school programs converged on the campus of Davenport University to compete in the Davenport Shootout today. Teams traveled from as far as eight hours away to test their metal against west Michigan's finest. Some of Michigan's top talent in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 classes were in attendance.

Haslett and Dewitt were the best teams in the gym this afternoon. I would not be surprised to see both teams make a  strong run for the Breslin Center during the 2015-16 basketball season.

Player Highlights

Karson Tripp  6'  2016  Post  Haslett
Tripp is a rangy, athletic, and can shoot the mid range jump shot and three consistently, Karson is very active defensively and runs the floor extremely well. She will be on the travel circuit with the Michigan Finest this summer.

Meagan Mowix  5'7"  2016  Guard  Haslett
Mowix is a good ball handler with a high basketball IQ. She is a great leader on the court that can shoot the three or midrange shot and finish at the rim.  Meagan can defend both guard positions and has great court vision. She is a player on Michigan Finest travel team.

Emily Vanzenten (Western Michigan)   6'4" 2016   Center  Northview  Vanzenten plays extremely well with her back to the basket.

Grand Rapids Storm is the travel program that she is a member of.
