Westlake picks up a pair of All-State Second Teamers in Shekinah Howard and Simone Lett. Howard comes in from Hapeville Charter where her play as a versatile wing garnered ACC interest. She averaged 15.7 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game. Lett, a former Region 2 foe at Pebblebrook, averaged 15.8 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 2.8 blocks as a 6-foot-1 forward. The twosome joins a now loaded Westlake roster which is ready to come of age after graduating just two seniors. With Taylor Hosendove expected to return, the Lions will flaunt three All-State selections.
Wheeler combats Westlake’s moves with the addition of Yazz Wazeerud-din. The athletic 6-foot forward was a First Team All Region 7-AAAAAA pick while at Pope.
Sisters Laren and Logan VanArsdale transfer from Whitefield Academy to Hillgrove. Laren was a First Team All-Region selection while Logan was an Honorable Mention pick in the loaded Region 6A. Laren is a playmaker that will make her teammates better with her ability to create off the bounce.
Catherine Shope adds major fire power to the North Forsyth backcourt, a team which already returns all five starters. Shope was a GICAA All-State selection after pouring in 21.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 4.4 steals per game at The King’s Academy in Woodstock. She is a high-volume scorer that will have help in place at North Forsyth, easing her offensive burden.
Rockdale County’s leading scorer, Diamond Swift, transfers over to neighboring Newton to join Lexii Chatman in the backcourt. Swift averaged 11.8 points as a sophomore and now bolsters the Rams’ guard rotation.
South Gwinnett gets a scoring punch in the form of Providence Christian Academy transfer Tamia Francis. Francis averaged 14.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 3 steals and 3.4 blocks per game for the Storm.
Melany Jackson provides a reloading Grovetown team with some toughness inside. At 5-foot-10 from Jefferson County, Jackson rebounds the ball well and can put it on the floor from 15-feet in to get to the hoop. She averaged 8.1 points as a sophomore.
In an effort to make sure Auburn-commit Brooke Moore goes out with a bang her senior year at Henry County, junior Janiyah Jones has moved in to strengthen the backcourt and take some of the scoring burden off Moore. Jones averaged 11.3 points and 5.4 rebounds as a sophomore at Whitewater.
Hardaway’s rebuilding process takes a monumental hit as Class AAAA All-State Second Teamer Olivia Cochran transfers to Carver-Columbus after posting 17.2 points, 10.9 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game as a 6-foot-1 freshman. She joins a Tiger team that finished as state runner-ups; their only weakness their lack of dominant size which Cochran more than makes up for now. Mariah Igus, Alycia Reese and Ja’nya Love-Hill will circle Cochran on the perimeter.
A part of Cross Creek’s twin tower success with Memphis-signee Alana Davis, Kianni Westbrook is ready to anchor her own team at Burke County. The 6-foot-1 lanky shot-blocker averaged 7.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2 blocks as a sophomore.
The rich get richer as reigning Class AAA state champion Beach sees Preseason All-Coastal Georgia honoree NaTeari Chaney transfer in from Savannah High. Chaney averaged 20.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game en route to being named an All-State Honorable Mention selection last season. Beach enters the season as a strong favorite to defend their title.
With two All-Americans off to college, St. Francis lands Jordan Isaacs to pick up where they left off. The 6-foot-2 forward was an All-Region 3 First Team selection at North Paulding. She excels at rebounding and catches opponents off guard with her left-handed offensive arsenal.
Chandler Davis joins St. Francis after averaging over 11 points and 2 steals per game at Alpharetta as a freshman.
