Carly Barbato – March 3, 2017

Megan Graves ‘18 and Emma Reavis ’19 were named to the Class A Girls Basketball NEPSAC All-Star team for the 2016-2017 season. The girls will compete in the All-Star game on Sunday, 3/5 hosted by Loomis Chaffee. Good luck!

#1 Megan Graves                                            

Height: 5’5” 

Position: Point Guard

2016/17 Stats: 9 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 2.2 apg, 2.6 spg  

Coach Comments: Megan is a two-time NEPSAC all-star and an undisputed leader of Deerfield’s team. She earned the honor of being a tri-captain as a junior and helped to lead the team on both ends of the floor. She controlled the offense as the point guard and was a big part of a balanced scoring team. On defense, Megan leveraged her quickness to get her hands on a lot of balls for deflections and steals, and she frequently came up with defensive big stops. Megan used her speed, athleticism and grit to distinguish herself over the course of the season.

 

#5 Emma Reavis                                             

Height: 5’8”

Position: Guard                     

2016/17 Stats:  9.5 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 2.9 apg, 2.8 spg

Coach Comments: Emma made an immediate impact as a new addition to the Deerfield squad this season. She used her impressive court vision to help lead Deerfield’s offense this season. Emma could always be counted on to thread the needle and find the open player on the court, while also using crafty moves to get to the rim and score. She was a big part of Deerfield’s balanced offense this year. Emma also made her presence known on defense, anticipating many passes and turning steals into points.

 

In addition, Ericka Ekhator ’17 and Felicia Renelus ’17 were both named to the honorable mention list of players for the season.

Congratulations!
