Before a season-ending loss to New Philadelphia, Haithcock led her Blue Lions to a district championship, beating state-ranked Vinton County to do so. Haithcock, a Southern Indiana commit, played a key tole in back-to-back 20-win seasons as well.

Scott, a Miami (OH) commit, broke just about every record possible en route to leading her Mustangs to a district runner-up finish. She ended her senior year averaging 27.5 points and 10.9 rebounds per game, and as the school’s all-time leading scorer — boys or girls.

As for Dettwiller, who led the Titans to a second consecutive district title, the 6-foot-4 senior boasts averages of 16.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per contest. Those numbers go alongside 4.3 blocks per night.
