Week 6 MVP
Metea captured the championship at Oswego East — the program’s first tournament title. No bigger reason was this 6-foot-2 senior. Obendorf scored a personal-high 28 points with 13 rebounds, playing all 32 minutes in championship game against Oswego East. She also had 16 points and 8 rebounds in the semifinal win over Downers Grove South.
In leading the Whip-Purs to the consolation championship of the Lisle Holiday Cage Classic, this 5-foot-9 guard/forward averaged 15 points per game. She scored 13 with 12 rebounds in a loss to Immaculate Conception then came back with 13 points and 6 rebounds and 7 assists in a win over Reed-Custer, 16 points in a victory over Timothy Christian and 17 points and 3 assists in the 55-34 win over Westmont in the consolation title game. Dumoulin then scored 8 points and had 11 rebounds in a 41-39 win over Sycamore last weekend, a game in which her 2 free throws with 2 seconds left in the game won it for the Whips.
Don’t let the 5-foot-6 frame fool you. The junior guard rebounds the basketball nearly as well as she shoots it. Her 15 points and 11 rebounds in the Sequoits’ 61-49 win over Lake Zurich marked her fourth double-double. Her all-tournament effort at Lisle included a 31-point/11-rebound performance in a 51-42 victory over Chicago Latin.
Resch helped lead the Fillies to a fifth-place finish (3-1) in the prestigious Dundee-Crown Charger Classic. The senior forward totaled 53 points and 35 rebounds, including 15 points and 14 rebounds against Resurrection in a 62-60 overtime win. In that game, Resch hit the game-tying layup at the buzzer of regulation and the game-winning layup as time expired in OT.
Aurora Central Catholic entered the Oswego East Holiday Tournament as the smallest of the 16 schools, and the Chargers wound up going 3-1 and finishing fifth.
