Week 1 MVP
Kemph, the 2011-12 Mid-Suburban East player of the year, helped lead Rolling Meadows to its sixth win without a loss. The 5-foot-6 junior guard scored a season-high 28 points with 8 assists and 2 steals in a 69-64 win over Fremd in the championship game of the Turkey Thriller held at Lake Zurich High School.
The Red Raiders’ 6-foot-2 freshman burst onto the varsity scene with authority, helping Huntley to a 5-1 start to the season. Andrews averaged 18.3 points per game in Huntley’s first six contests, scoring 21 in wins over South Elgin and Streamwood and 20 against St. Viator.

The shooter wears No. 3, fittingly. A three-year varsity starter at guard, she poured in a career-best seven 3-pointers and scored a career-best 29 points in the Sequoits’ 64-48 win over Taft at Niles North. It was the Sequoits’ fourth victory in their first five games.
The junior guard led Batavia with 72 points in 4 games last weekend at the Morton Tournament to earn a spot on the all-tournament team. Batavia dropped its first two games despite Fruendt’s 17 and 21 points, then bounced back to blow out Normal and Moline with Fruendt scoring 19 of her 23 points in the first half against Moline
This high-scoring sophomore guard led the Red Devils to the championship of the Hinsdale South Tournament.
