Lake Park's Casey Darre is this week's Daily Herald MVP for girls basketball.
Casey Darre, Lake Park: Darre's 3-point shot was on target in the Lancers' victory against Montini and then again in a DuKane Conference victory at Wheaton North. She scored 18 points on 4-of-6 3-point shooting against Montini. Against Wheaton North Darre scored 23 points, making 5 of her seven 3-pointers.
Mary Kate Fahey, Hersey : The 5-foot-7 sophomore point guard helped pave the way for three wins in four days. She totaled 34 points, four 3-pointers, 14 assists and shot 40 percent from the field in wins over Elk Grove, Prospect and Glenbrook South. Her 4 free throws in the final 27 seconds helped seal a 48-45 win at Prospect.
Annie Tate, St. Charles North: This hard-nosed 5-foot-10 senior forward started her week with a game-high 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field and 5-of-6 at the line in a win over Jacobs. Tate led all players with 21 points plus 8 rebounds in a loss to Geneva before totaling 14 points and 8 rebounds in a 56-38 win over No. 6 Lake Park.
Maura Fitzgerald, Grayslake Central: More regarded for her defense, the senior point guard showed off her offense in the Rams' Northern Lake County Conference showdown at Wauconda. Her career-high 20 points on 5-of-8 shooting from the floor and 10-of-13 shooting from the foul line led the way in a 55-50 victory. The three-year varsity starter also had 4 steals and 4 rebounds.
