Crestwood Academy (Toronto, ON)
Crestwood is loaded in every position and not just the starting 5. They have great team chemistry and it shows on both ends of the floor. They are a hard-nosed, in your face team that plays every possession with the same level of energy. They are disciplined, athletic and well coached.
Detroit Edison (Division 2)
DEPSA did what DEPSA does. Damiya Hagemann led the way with her dynamic passes, superb court vision, and high IQ while playing the point guard position or in transition. Despite falling short in a down to the wire battle with Crestwood, Edison is still the queens of the Michigan throne.
Carleton Airport (Division 2)
Disciplined, focused, aggressive, and scrappy are a few words that can be used to describe Carleton Airport’s play. They moved in a beautiful motion on both ends of the court, especially in transition and while playing half-court defense. While watching them and how they responded to their coach’s orders, the first thing that came to mind was discipline soldiers. I look forward to seeing them play this season.
Southfield A&T (Division 1)
Southfield A&T seemed to be finding their way and gelling together in every game. They have a nice mix of an amazing amount of talent and some young high energy players, eager to help any way they can. Coach Marshall showed why she’s one of the best in the state, fitting the pieces of her team together to create a masterpiece.
Macomb Dakota (Division 1)
Teams that have multiple scoring options and players that are six feet and can handle the ball and go coast to coast with ease, will always be a team that is difficult to beat. Led by Western Michigan Commit Taylor Williams, Dakota confirmed that they will definitely be a strong contender in class A, and possibly make a final four appearance in the tournament.
