Dawson County 40, North Hall 26

The pick-and-roll offense of Dawson County (1-0) was wildly effective. Kindra Coker played well and showed a nice synergy with Morgan Chester on high ball screens. Coker delivers on the money low bounce passes while Chester is able to catch and finish on the move. I really think Chester is a D-II prospect looking at how the landscape of recruitment has shaped up this summer. Her inside-out versatility on both ends of the ball is incredibly valuable at the next level. Morgan, who has a Truett McConnell bid, could have potentially landed more offers this offseason, but decided to sit out travel ball. There was no rust at all for her or Abby Slaton who continues to improve off the dribble. She’s become an effective downhill driver that will use scoop shots to finish. The trio of Jaci Wilson, Heather Burt and Ava Roberson dominated the paint, combining for 8 points, 14 rebounds and 6 blocks. The Vachtsevanos sisters were bright spots for North Hall (0-1). Both were aggressive attacking the basket. Athena went 7-8 from the line. Her and Martha each netted a three.

Jefferson 34, East Forsyth 32 OT

The Michel Robbins era is officially upon us. Her electric athleticism and nonstop motor spurred Jefferson (1-0) to a come from behind victory. In overtime Robbins got a deflection and steal in the press and pitched ahead to Delaney DeWitt for the game-winning layup as time expired. Robbins filled up the stat sheet. She gets very good lift on her jump shot, has a lightning quick first step and was able to convert at the line going 5-7. Robbins will be one of the most impactful freshmen in the state. Eve Knight looked really good inside, scoring on a variety of back-to-the-basket moves. She span middle for a left-handed hook and also scored on a post turnaround. Knight was efficient from the foul line, shooting 6-8. Skyler Brady’s energy created opportunities for Jefferson. She can standout as a scorer, defender or facilitator. Following a scoreless regulation, DeWitt made an impact late with her lone two baskets. I like how she is able to score through contact and her toughness on the glass. East Forsyth (0-1) has nice balance between Ayla Heard and Addison Rouse. Haily Hiddema can be an X-Factor when her three-point shot is dropping, she sank two long balls. Keep an eye on freshman Hollyn Hicks. She has good size and mobility. She pushed the ball up the floor, ran in transition for layups and has a pretty looking shot.


2025 5-10 C Eve Knight – 10 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals, 1 block
2027 5-8 G Michel Robbins – 9 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 6 steals

Fannin County 43, Lanier 32

It didn’t take long for Courtney Davis to stamp herself as a frontrunner for League MVP. The potent All-State guard dropped in 14 first half points to set the tone including nailing two deep threes. Davis had her floater working to perfection and was able to turn corners to get downhill. Emmanuel, Auburn Montgomery and Oglethorpe have offered. Her strong summer has put her in a good position heading into her senior season. She is one of the best players available in North Georgia.  Macy Hawkins provided Fannin County (1-0) production in the paint. She loves to get to her parallel to the basket hook shot over her left shoulder. The tandem of Asja Howell and Jordan Johnson played very well for Lanier (0-1). Howell found points from all three levels, hitting a three off the dribble while mixing in pull-up jumpers, floaters and hard drives. Johnson did her damage within the arc. She scored with slashes to the rim and drew fouls in the process going 5-8 from the charity stripe.


2024 5-6 PG Courtney Davis – 18 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block
2024 5-10 F Macy Hawkins – 7 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block

2026 5-5 G Jordan Johnson – 13 points, 1 rebound, 2 steals

Athens Academy 40, South Forsyth 30

Playing nearly exclusively freshmen, there is reason to be excited about the future at Athens Academy (1-0). The 2027 class seems deep and athletic. Kendall Lawson is still young and growing into her body, but she was able to disrupt South Forsyth and force turnovers. Lawson scored in transition and drew fouls downhill while also hitting a pull-up three. Her activity was steady. Sally Swann is a sturdy forward with good mobility. She gets on the glass and is able to shut down passing lanes and pick off passes. Josie Collins and Millie Pugmire have good length and athletic frames on the wing. Sophomore Kayla Wilkins brings physicality to the low block while lone senior Sally Bullard is a versatile piece who shot well, hitting a pair of mid-range jumpers. South Forsyth saw Amelia Brown get hot to end the first half and open the second. A buzzer-beating corner three sent the War Eagles into the break down 15-13. Brown sank another baseline out of bounds corner three, scored on a floater and found a bucket in transition by running the floor. Her outside shooting will play a big factor in how much success a new-look South Forsyth (0-1) team sees. Berkley Bennett is ready to step up. She played with great energy in the paint, the lefty corralling rebounds and scoring on a jumper, a floater and a putback. Delanie Nicholson’s defense ignited her offense, scoring off three steals.


2027 5-7 PG Kendall Lawson – 11 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 5 steals
2027 5-7 G Millie Pugmire – 6 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, 1 block
2027 5-5 G Chloe Love Bell – 6 points, 2 rebounds

2025 5-10 F Berkley Bennett – 8 points, 11 rebounds, 2 steals
2024 5-8 G Delanie Nicholson – 6 points, 2 rebounds, 3 steals
2024 5-9 W Jadyn Kniceley – 3 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals

Redline 34, Union County 29

In what turned out to be the most physical game of the day, the middle schoolers from Redline (1-0) proved they could hold their own at the varsity level. Ana Anzola was impressive without having to score the ball. Her energy and well-rounded floor game keeps her productive at all times. Carib Morris or better known as the Pink Mamba on social media, made a strong first impression. At 6-foot-1 and only a seventh grader, Morris is good enough to help varsity rosters across the state today. She moves well for her size and age and has a quick trigger with deep range. Morris scored on a baseline jumper, an And-1 putback, ran the floor for a hoop, sank a deep three and converted a eurostep through traffic. With her size and skill level, Carib has a High Major trajectory if she continues to add to her game. Gracen Holbrook and Kylee Herrick helped loosen the defense with their perimeter shooting, Holbrook hitting a mid-range jumper and corner three while Herrick nailed a pair of long balls. Ariel McCarter led Union County (0-1) with a three, a coast-to-coast finish and a perfect 4-4 from the foul line. Kamryn Mull was aggressive as an on-ball defender. Lara Turner did well on the glass and made some impressive passes in the paint off the dribble.


2029 6-1 F Carib Morris – 13 points, 8 rebounds
2028 5-8 G Gracen Holbrook – 7 points, 4 rebounds, 1 steal
2028 5-7 G Kylee Herrick – 6 points, 1 rebound
2028 5-6 PG Ana Anzola – 4 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, 5 steals, 1 block

2025 5-9 G Katelyn Brown – 4 points, 7 rebounds, 1 steal
2024 5-3 PG Kamryn Mull – 4 points, 1 rebound, 5 steals
2024 5-11 F Lara Turner – 3 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists

Oconee County 50, Denmark 24

A shorthanded Denmark (0-1) was no match for Oconee County (1-0) who outscored the Danes 29-11 in the second half. Julie Azeltine was the top scorer of the week with 21 points. She scored in transition, finished with her left hand, hit a pair of threes and knocked down a one-dribble pull-up going to her right. Freshman Eliza Oechsle attacked the paint throughout the game while Elizabeth Wynn was too big to handle inside for the undersized Danes. Denmark struggled to force Oconee County to go left and was outrebounded 47-20 but did have two bright spot performances in the backcourt between Hannah Lopez and Katie Trinh. Lopez netted a pair of threes and had some nice drives finishing with both hands. Trinh looks to be a valuable piece this upcoming season. I liked her quickness and confidence handling the ball. She buried a three, hit a floater and scored on an And-1 drive.


2025 5-7 G Julie Azeltine – 21 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block
2027 5-5 G Eliza Oechsle – 12 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist
2025 6-2 C Elizabeth Wynn – 10 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists
2025 5-7 G Jill Daniel – 4 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists

2025 5-5 PG Hannah Lopez – 14 points, 4 rebounds
2026 5-3 G Katie Trinh – 7 points, 1 rebound, 1 steal
