Congratulations to Deerfield’s Megan Graves ’18 and Emma Reavis ’19 on being named to the NEPSAC girls basketball all-star team for the 2017-18 season! This past Sunday, the girls represented Deerfield and competed in the NEPSAC girls basketball all-star game hosted by Nobles Athletics. Both Megan and Emma are familiar with the NEPSAC all-star game; this year marked the third year that senior co-captain Megan was selected for the honor and the second time for Emma.
This season, the girls basketball team went 7-12-0 and advanced to the championship game of the New England Girls Basketball Classic Tournament which marked the first time since the 2013-14 season that the team qualified for the championship game.
Read Coach Stedman’s comments on Megan and Emma…
#1 Megan Graves ’18
Position: Point Guard
2017/18 Stats: 8.0 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 2.0 APG, 2.0 SPG
Coach Comments: Megan is a three-time NEPSAC all-star and an undisputed leader of Deerfield’s team. She has been the captain of the team for two consecutive years, and helps to lead the team on both ends of the floor. She controls the offense as the point guard and uses her athleticism and speed to be a big threat in transition. On defense, Megan leverages her quickness to get her hands on a lot of balls for deflections and steals, and she frequently comes up with defensive big stops. Megan is a threat on both ends of the court and will be a strong player at the next level.
#5 Emma Reavis ‘19
2017/18 Stats: 13.6 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 4.5 APG, 3.2 SPG
Coach Comments: Emma is a two-time NEPSAC all-star and one of the engines of Deerfield’s team. Impressively enough, she led Deerfield in all major statistical categories this past season: points, rebounds, assists and steals. She uses her basketball IQ and impressive court vision on both ends of the floor. Offensively, Emma can 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. Defensively, she is able to anticipate many passes and turn steals into points. She is a true all-around threat.
Congratulations Megan & Emma!
