Freshman Girls At the All Star Game

Aliza Simpson goes to the rim

Aliza Simpson (5’7” G Londonderry) - Simpson definitely doesn't play like a freshman. She is always at the right place at the right time. It is evident she has played a lot of basketball in her years and has a high basketball I.Q. She is a tough defensive player who scores a lot of her baskets off the press and turnovers. The special thing about Simpson is that just her presence on the court makes the players around her step up their game.

Brandi Bonneau (5’5” G Pinkerton) - Bonneau plays with all heart. Although she is small, she is often the one coming away with rebounds and loose balls. She plays the point guard position, nicely distributing the ball but can put the ball in the basket as well.

Aleanna Clermont (5’10” F Pembroke Academy) - Clermont runs the floor as well as anyone. Her ability to get up and down the court so fast, and her quick first step gives her an advantage over the other players on the court.

Caitlin Dell’Orfano (5’8” G Central Catholic) - Dell’Orfano makes things happen on the court. This Central Catholic freshman can penetrate and kick, or take it one on one. She was a key player in the Freshman Game on Sunday.

McKenzie Brown (6’1” F Bedford) - Brown is tough off the boards. She has height and great instincts for the basketball as she always knows where the ball is going to come off rim. McKenzie made her presence known, scoring 14 in the Freshman game. She has a sweet touch around the basket.

Sam Gauthier (5’7” G Manchester Central) - Gauthier is a tremendous athlete. She is not just a basketball player but one of the top cross-country runners in the state. She works hard, and loves the game. Can hit the long range jump shot.

Nicole Femino (5’10” G Masconomet) Femino has grown two inches the past couple months. This gives her an advantage over her defenders, as she can play on the wing and bring the ball up. She takes the ball hard to the basket.

Raeghan Muhlerin (5’6” G Narragansett) - Raeghan played well defensively, she wasn’t afraid to get physical. She sees the court very well.

Rachel Collins (5’7” G Bedford) - Collins is a smart player who you can count on to hit the easy bucket. She had a sweet spot on Sunday, putting in a few baseline jumpers. She is also a strong defensive player who gets right up on her opponent.

Phoebe Collins (5’7” G Portsmouth) No relation to Rachel, but one thing they both have in common is that they are both reliable guards. Always in the right spot at the right time, Phoebe is a very smart player. Has a sweet mid-range pull up.

Colleen Fortier (5’6” G Pinkerton Academy) - Colleen can play both the guard and forward. She bangs under the boards, and can score under the basket. She can consistently hit the long range jumper.

Taylor Marston (5’7” G Bishop Brady) - Marston is one of the quicker players around. She can bring the ball up the court and hit the three. Defensively she can cause problems for her opponents.

Sandi Purcell (5’5” G Alvirne) - Purcell give you 100% defensively. She plays in your face, tormenting defense. Offensively she can be deadly from long range, as well as having good ball control.

Ashley Hugh (5’9” F Pinkerton Academy) - Hugh is as tough as nails. She runs into walls, dives head first on the court, anything to come up with the basketball. She finishes well around the basket.

Ali Glennon (5’10 F Bedford High School) - Might have the most potential out of the freshman group. She runs the floor well and finishes around the basket. Things happen when she is on the court.

Jamie Sherburne (5’6” G Bishop Guertin)-Loves to drive off the wing position. Sherburne is not afraid to bang bodies and play physical.

Taylor Cuomo (5’6” G Pinkerton Academy) - Cuomo is a very skilled player, who always seems to get her hand on the ball. She is a very quick player who causes problems for her opponents.

Clairee Putnam (5’6” G Windham) Strong guard, with good ball control. She is ice from the free throw line, shooting 100% in the game on Sunday. Putnam also has a great outside shot.
