Stats: Scored 39 points with 20 rebounds, four assists and three charges in two games

Madison ChapmanName: Madison Chapman
School: Berkshire
Grade: 12
Stats: Scored 17 points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in a win over Richmond Heights
Coach’s Quote: “Maddie came up big in the fourth quarter to lead the comeback,” Berkshire coach James Bosley said. “She scored nine of her 17 points along with two steals and two assists in the fourth. She showed her leadership on the floor and really helped the girls stay calm when the game was close.

Julia truly plays with heart. She cares about her team and is willing to do anything to help us be successful.”
