The more we have seen players from Team M14 this high school season, the more we come away impressed by the all-around talent of this team from top to bottom. They have multiple players that are having breakout seasons. It's for sure a squad that Div. 1 programs and other levels will want to check out this spring and summer as they have many of the top juniors in the area as well as a highly skilled sophomore.
Zosia Wrobel (2022 Geneva HS): The 6'0" forward is a nice inside and outside threat who can knock down shots at a high percentage but also will go inside and score it strong. She also handles the ball well and can attack the basket. Wrobel is a talented junior with good potential that can score in bunches.
Lenee Beaumont (2023 Benet Academy): The playmaking guard is a skilled shooter with range who can shoot lights out from the perimeter. She is also a reliable passer who loves attacking the defense to distribute and get her teammates involved. Beaumont is rising to be one of the top sophomores in Illinois and has caught the interest of several Div. I schools and has offers from DePaul and St. Thomas.
Hailey Markworth (2022 Lyons Township HS): The 5'10" junior guard is having a good season for Lyons. In the last couple of weeks alone, she has had a couple of double-doubles while averaging 12.6 points 5.1 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game. She is a tough and athletic guard with a good motor that can get a lot done on the floor. Markworth is a tough perimeter defender, can make plays off the dribble, hit perimeter jumpers, skilled passer, finishes well around the basket and more. She currently has interest from several Div. 1 programs.
Riley Mont (West Aurora HS): Mont is having one of the better seasons around averaging 26 points and 6.3 rebounds, a game for the year. Earlier this month, the junior guard scored 40 points while knocking down six threes in the game. Mont is a talented shooter that can hit threes at a high rate while also hitting them from well beyond the arc. In addition to her strong shooting, she is a three level scorer that is good off the dribble plus is a tough on-ball defender. Mont continues to improve her game and is easy to see why she has interest from both Div. 1 and 2 programs.
Kenzie Hare (2022 Bartlett HS): The 5'9" junior guard is one of the top players in Illinois and the entire Midwest putting up nearly 30 points per game. Hare committed to St. Louis back in December of 2020. You can't give Hare any space on the perimeter as she is a knockdown shooter off the catch and dribble. When Hare has the ball, she can use her high-level handle to create space for herself to pull up from anywhere. In her most recent game, Hare scored 37 points while hitting a remarkable nine threes. While just a junior she has has already scored over 1700 points.
Lily Huntzinger (2022 Wheaton Warrenville South HS): Huntzinger is an excellent all-around player that can affect any part of the game. On offense, the 5'11" wing forward can either take it to the bucket or hit shots from the outside When Huntzinger drives, she uses her speed and elusiveness to beat defenders and get to the basket well. Huntzinger is developing into a good versatile player on both ends of the ball that is one of the more underrated players the Chicagoland area.
Sarah Crossett (2022 Naperville North HS): Like her teammate, Lily Huntzinger, Crossett is a high-impact player that has a hand in everything on both ends of the court. Crossett scores the ball at a high rate in the post with her back to the basket but can also play out on the perimeter and put the ball on the floor. The junior is a tough and agile defender that also really battles on the glass
Tessa Towers (2022 Batavia HS): Towers is having an incredible junior season averaging a double-double with around 20 points and 14 rebounds a game. Like her last name, she towers over the opposing players with a 6'5" height plus has good strength. Towers is a dominant center who backs down the defense with strong post moves to score at a high rate around the paint. Good luck trying to rebound with her around because she is able to grab almost every board near her, as you can see in her stat line. Towers is becoming one of the top front-court players in the state and even the Midwest. College coaches need to keep an eye out for her.
