Why don't we see Ashley Wilson from Wheeling High School on this list?

after seeing Magrum at Fenwick she has my vote

I also saw LWE's Magrum play in both the Marian Catholic and Fenwick games. She is worthy of playing in the McDonald's All-American game.

Ashley Wilson was nominated to the McDonalds All-American team though you never mentioned her on your little list and it's so pathetic how the Chgo Sun-times reporters show they have so little respect the for Wheelings girls basketball team. They may have lost to Whitney Young but they are still the better team and I think you all know it. The nicest comment you could come up with is that they have the easiest path to 4A. Geneva is undefeated, what tough teams have they played or will they play.....none!!!

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my blog. My opinion of the Chgo reports still has not changed. I find you all completely bias. Yes Wheeling lost by 20 pts to WY but they have also beat almost every other team they've playd by 20+ pts. I know you don't make the pairings but neither does Wheeling and trust me I know Geneva has not beat any rank team this season. And everyone that Whitney Young beat was not the best teams either but you all make it seem like their beating all top ranked teams.

Why wasnt anyone from bolingbrook on that team. It doesnt matter. The State Championship Game speaks for it self.
