Brief description on some of the teams in the John Anderson
It’s always good to catch Mater Dei to see what they are producing. Vanden of course young talent led by 2017 University of Houstin commit Julia Blackshell-Fair. Valley Vista led by 2018 Taylor Chavez the sharp shooter. La Salle led by Oregon State commit Aleah Goodman. Our Lady of Good Counsel led by Northwestern commit 2017 Lindsey Pulliam and 2019 Chloe Chapman. Carondelet should have some nice skilled talent with some size and guard play. Brentwood Academy as well should be a team to see.
