St. Charles North junior forward Anna Davern has earned Daily Herald MVP recognition for her recent high school girls basketball performances.

Anna Davern, St. Charles North: The North Stars have been playing their best basketball of the season, winning seven of eight after a 2-0 week. That included a 61-49 win over No. 4 Geneva thanks to 22 points and 11 rebounds by this 6-foot-1 junior forward. She shot 8-of-15 from the field and made two 3-point baskets. Davern followed game-highs of 12 points and 9 rebounds in a tight 37-35 victory at Batavia.

Maggie Bair, Glenbard South: The 6-foot-2 sophomore racked up two double-doubles in two Raiders victories. She had 13 points, 17 rebounds, 3 blocks and 3 steals against Illiana Christian. She added 11 points, 12 rebounds, 7 steals and 3 blocks against IC Catholic Prep as the Raiders remained undefeated in the MSC Blue.

Kaylen Dickson, Warren: Division I coaches continue to scout the 5-foot-11 junior guard, and she hasn't disappointed. Her 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 steals helped the Blue Devils edge North Suburban Conference-leader Stevenson 42-40. She then scored a game-high 16 points in a 43-31 win over Lake Zurich.

Claire Gritt, Hersey: The four-year starting senior guard helped Hersey earn its fourth straight 20-win season when she poured home a game-high 26 points in a 72-39 win at Prospect that kept the Huskies perfect at 7-0 in the MSL East. Gritt also scored 25 in a 42-39 loss at Glenbrook South three days earlier.
