Week 2 MVP
The 6-foot junior has been one of the best players for the Knights, who are off to their best start in team history. She produced a season-high 24 points, 11 rebounds, 5 steals and 4 blocked shots in a win over Jacobs. She then had 12 points, 9 rebounds, 7 blocks and 3 steals against Woodstock North, as the Knights improved to 8-0.
The Warriors got an early jump in the West Suburban Gold race, and this junior guard is a big reason why. Krawczykowski averaged 16 points, 4 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals in wins over Addison Trail and Proviso East. Krawczykowski, who earlier this season scored 16 points against St. Joseph and Plainfield East, tallied a team-high 17 in Willowbrook’s 79-51 rout of Proviso East.
The Sabres’ 5-foot-7 senior guard scored 15 points and had 8 rebounds and 4 assists in a 53-38 Upstate Eight River win over St. Charles North and then came back with 17 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 steals in a 64-24 River win over Larkin as Streamwood improved to 6-1 overall on the season.
In a big Mid-Suburban West opener against crosstown rival Fremd, Pappas helped lead the Pirates to a 37-27 victory. She scored 9 points and helped direct the offense with 5 assists. But the senior guard hardly slowed down. One day later, the 5-foot-6 IUPUI-bound Pappas came back to score a career-high 30 points as Palatine won for the eighth time in nine games, 62-50 in a nonconference game at Highland Park.
This University of Nebraska at Omaha recruit saw her senior season get off to a rough start with a broken middle finger in the first quarter of her first game. Pawlak missed the next 5 games, then returned with a bang last weekend with a pair of double-doubles — 13 points, 11 rebounds and then 14 points, 13 rebounds — in wins over Batavia and South Elgin
