By Justin Sokeland
Bedford North Lawrence’s Dominique McBryde and Jenna Allen have been named two of the six core players for Indiana’s Junior All-Star Team.
The Junior All-Stars will play exhibitions on June 9 and June 11 against the senior Indiana All-Stars in preparation for the senior All-Stars’ annual series with Kentucky (June 13 in Lexington and June 14 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis).
The Junior All-Stars will play Kentucky’s Junior All-Stars on June 6 (Scecina High School in Indianapolis) and June 7 (Lexington).
“I’m really excited about it,” McBryde said. “I’m just truly honored to be selected for it. I’m looking forward to playing Kentucky, to see what other talent is out there.”
McBryde averaged 15.0 points and 6.9 rebounds, and Allen totaled 14.9 points and 8.7 rebounds while leading the Stars to their second straight Class 4-A state championship.
The rest of the core group includes Lawrence North’s Lamina Cooper (a Purdue recruit), Merrillville’s Victoria Gaines (Michigan State), Columbus North’s Ali Patberg (Notre Dame) and Evansville Mater Dei’s Tori Schickel.
