Daily Herald report

Rolling Meadows senior guard Jackie Kemph has been selected as the Daily Herald's MVP for her recent basketball performances.

Jackie Kemph, Rolling Meadows: The St. Louis-bound senior was at her best in Rolling Meadows' showdown at Prospect, scoring a game-high 23 points with 9 assists and 7 rebounds in the Mustangs' 69-50 triumph. She also shared game-scoring honors with 24 points in a 92-43 win over Schaumburg the game before.

Chrissy Baird, Wheaton North: The 6-foot-1 senior scored 14 points, 5 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 steals in a 56-44 DuPage Valley Conference victory against Glenbard East. She followed that up with 17 points, 7 rebounds, 2 blocks and 2 steals in a 70-46 victory to hand West Aurora its first DVC loss and solidify second place in the conference for the Falcons.

Kennede Miller, South Elgin: The 6-foot senior helped the Storm to two wins by extending her game to the 3-point line, which has increased her offensive output. She had 17 points including 3 3-pointers in a 62-48 win over St. Edward then came back with 21 points and 4 more 3s in a 64-44 Upstate Eight Valley win over East Aurora. Miller also had 17 rebounds, 2 blocks and 4 assists in the two wins.

Emma Rappe, Carmel Catholic: Rappe had her way. As the Corsairs' only true post player, the 6-foot junior has put forth a consistent effort in her second varsity season. Her 15 points and strong post defense helped the Corsairs top Loyola 60-53 for their 14th win, which snapped a two-game losing streak.

Kelly Wallner, Kaneland: The Knights' 6-foot senior center came through with two big games inside last week, finishing with a double-double in both. Wallner started with a 13-point, 13-rebound effort in a win over Morris and followed with 15 points and 14 rebounds against Burlington Central.
