Local ladies named to Hoosier Basketball Magazines Top 60 Senior Girls of 2017-2018

Gary Franklin

Among the announced slate of Top 60 senior girl basketball players selected from approximately 1,400 senior players statewide, were Jac-Cen-Del Lady Eagle Lilly Simon, Rising Sun Lady Shiner Lucy Carrigan and Greensburg Lady Pirate Kyra Whitaker along with a pair of Indiana Tindley Lady Tigers Kendall Fisher and Skye Williams. The selections are based on statistical evaluation, game observation and statewide research conducted during the season and throughout the state tournament in determining Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Top 60.

Half of the girls, primarily from northern and southern Indiana, will participate in the first session (1:00-3:00 pm EST). The remaining players, primarily from central Indiana, will compete during the second session (3:30-5:30 pm EST).
