Junior All-Star rosters set


Gearlds and Russell headline talented junior squad.


March 16, 2002

    The 2002 version of the Junior All-Star team has been announced, and the squad could be the most deadly collection of weapons since the team began its annual challenges against the Senior All-Star team.

    When you talk of an anchor, usually the term refers to a dominant center. This team is anchored at both ends. Holding up the post is 6'6 Terre Haute South center Reicina Russell, a 2002 state champ coming off a state championship record 31 point-performance. Anchored at guard is another strong early candidate for the 2003 Miss Basketball title, Purdue-bound Katie Gearlds. Gearlds finished the season as the top junior scorer, averaging over 26 points per game.

    Quite an inside-outside package to have to deal with is you are a member of the Senior All-Star squad, right?

    Oh, I gets even worse for the seniors.

    Throw in 5'6 Pike guard Miranda Green, averaging 20.7 points per game, and South Bend Riley slasher Suntan Granderson, averaging a slightly better 20.8 points per game. On the wing is Kokomo's 5'9 DeUnna Hendrix, and a lock at power forward is Brebeuf's 6'1 Carrie Smith, who brings her 14.2 scoring average and seven rebounds per game into the mix.

    These six players will make up the core team for the Junior Stars, and will participate in both scrimmages against the Senior Stars, coached by Alexandria's Jon Howell. The Junior Stars will scrimmage the Senior Stars twice, June 12 and June 19, and will be teamed with an additional six juniors for each of the two games.

    Completing the junior team for the June 19th "North" game will be guards Jacqueline Closser of Alexandria and Leah Enterline of Heritage, wing Heather Luttrell of Northwestern, forwards Crystal Norman of South Bend Riley and Amanda Norris of Shenandoah, and center Allison Lindborg of South Bend St. Joseph.

    Completing the junior team for the June 12th "South" game will be guards Tina Bolte of Columbus North, Missy Glaser of Evansville Mater Dei, Catherine Graham of Southwestern and Megan Casad of Bloomington South, and power players Rachel Brockman of Indianapolis Cathedral and Laura Gaybrick of Perry Meridian.

    The first scrimmage, featuring the "South" stars, will be held on June 12 at Mackey Arena on the campus of Purdue University. The second scrimmage, featuring the "North" stars, will be held on June 19 at Wawasee High School in Syracuse, IN. The girls games are set to tip off at 6:00pm, to be followed immediately by the boys all star scrimmages. Admission will be $6.
