Brennan took her game to the next level during her junior year by averaging 16 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks to help Lakeview win its first regional title.

“Joslyn’s work ethic and improvement over the last three years, along with being a quality person and teammate have made her the player she is,” Lakeview coach Joe Charrette said.

5-9, Sr., G, Warren Cousino

McArthur put herself on the radar her freshman year when she started and knocked down four 3-pointers in Cousino’s Class A state championship game win over Detroit King at the Breslin Center. She continued to pour in points during the rest of her career, scoring more than 1,500 points for her career. She will play next year at Central Michigan.
