All Conference Academic performer at Elon.

CENTER: Cheyanne Parker: 2006-2010: Southwest Guilford: The 6’5 imposing center did not have a spectacular highschool carreer but was effective when she did play. Her ability to block shots led to many fast breaks for the Zena Lovetts of the world. A great rebounder and fierce competitor that creates havoc for opponents but could also cause it for teammates as well. If emotions are in check she elevates this team. One of the best players to play at Highpoint University by becoming their All Time shot blocker and averaged a double-double before transferring to Middle Tennessee. She was an All Conference perfomer at Southwest Guilford in 2009. Parker is a good choice here provided the other intangibles are in place that has nothing to do with basketball. Catrina Green from Western Guilford may be the better choice as far as fitting in with the style of players selected.

FORWARD: Kristina Green: 2010-2014: New Hope Academy: The 6’4 forward possess the ability to run the floor and can knock down the three. Well suited for an uptempo type style which this team would be. But can also play from a set position. She has demonstrated her abilities with one of the top teams in the Nation.
