The Kutztown Women's Basketball One-Day Shootout fielded four dozen girls high school teams to its campus on Sunday where as many as six courts had action at a time throughout the day. Spent most of the day in the Fieldhouse along with catching a few contests in Keystone Hall and the Rec Center to check out some of the local squads and others in action at the event.

Here are those who stood out in those games:

Quinn Boettinger (2025 | Perkiomen Valley)
The Vikings sophomore 6-foot-3 center has a great understanding of how to position herself and create space inside. She is a foul magnet, doing most of her damage at the line in an eight-point, seven-rebound effort against Friends’ Central that also included a block and an assist. Boettinger, who recently received her first offer on a visit to Drexel, has great coordination inside for a young post player and her finishing is starting to come along, as highlighted when she scored easily on three or four straight possessions in a terrific game against Lansdale Catholic later in the day.

Abril Bowser (2023 | Abington)
Bowser was extremely impactful at both ends of the floor in a win over George School. The Ghosts' senior guard didn’t hunt shots but she was efficient on the offensive end with 11 points, drilling three attempts from deep that barely touched the net. Bowser was tough on the defensive end as well as she swiped three steals. Her work on defense really ignited Abington, helping the Ghosts get out and run after a slow offensive start.

One of a number of promising young players slated to play big minutes for West Catholic this season, the 5-10 wing/forward put up 13 points for the Burrs against Cape Henlopen. Butler did her damage within the flow of the offense, showing off a versatile game. She has a nice midrange jumper, can attack from the wing and freed herself for some easy looks inside. On a team with a lot of guards, the Burrs will also look for her to be tough on the defensive interior and the boards this season.

Gabby Casey (2023 | Lansdale Catholic)
The St. Joe’s commit put up a statline of 17 points, four assists, four rebounds, two steals and a block in a win over Haverford to cap a 3-0 day for the Crusaders. The game seems so easy at times for her as she seems to get to where she wants on the court and do what she wants to do once she gets there. She knocked threes off the catch-and-shoot and dribble, got into the lane where she finished through contact and made some terrific passes to set up some wide open LC looks. The 5-9 guard rounds out her game with impactful defense and some tough rebounding as well.

Caroline Dotsey (2023 | Haverford)
Nothing was easy for Dotsey as the Lansdale Catholic defense honed in on her Sunday, but the 6-foot-2 forward and Maine commit still managed to finish with 16 points, 10 boards and a pair of blocks. It was hard to get her the ball inside, but every time she caught the ball with position the result was a bucket or a trip to the line. She has a nice midrange jumper too that was rattling out, preventing her from an even bigger offensive day. Despite having to work hard on the offensive end, Dotsey didn’t let that impact her defense as she was out on the perimeter guarding guards. She made a handful of terrific passes as well, showing off the ability to push the ball in transition.

Delaney Finnegan (2023 | Archbishop Wood)
Finnegan (three points, two assists) didn’t light it up on offense but her impressive work on the defensive end deserved to be highlighted. She shadowed Pennsbury guard Sofia Vitucci throughout a four-point Wood win and very few of Vitucci’s 18 came against Finnegan. At 5-10 she frustrates with her length (block, two steals) but she is also quick enough and disciplined enough to stay in front. Finnegan certainly has an offensive skill set as well showing off the ability to put the ball on the floor and making good decisions.

Grace Galbavy (2025 | Perkiomen Valley)
Galbavy was a late arrival for the Vikings in their loss to Friends’ Central but she still had time to score 11 points, grab three boards and add a steal and block to her stat line. She knocked down her first three 3-point attempts and added an alley oop in transition off the feed from Bella Bacani. The 6-foot guard, with an even longer wingspan, should continue to make an even larger two-way impact as she adjusts to playing with her new teammates. She received offers from Temple and Pitt this summer and recently took a visit to Penn State.

Sanaa Garrett (2023 | Friends’ Central)
The Phoenix’s senior 5-9 point guard did a little bit of everything for a balanced FCS group in a win over Perkiomen Valley. She ran the offense, taking care of the ball and dishing out a handful of assists. Garrett has a really good sense of when she should use her ability to attack and when to let the offense run and find others a shot. Her impact was significant on the defensive end as well as her quickness and aggressiveness led to a pair of steals and impacted a number of other Perk Valley offensive plays, whether that led to a turnover or difficult shot. 

Taylor Gurysh (2023 | Neshaminy)

The Kutztown commit looked quite comfortable playing on her future college campus. She put up 28 points in a win over Eastern York, hitting three shots from deep, scoring on the drive and cutting to the basket as well as creating for herself with a good pump fake inside. Gurysh’s versatility extended to her playmaking where she racked up a handful of assists both from the point guard spot and the high post. Her rebounding (six boards) and defense were impressive as well in an overall dominant outing for the versatile 5-10 wing.

Jaida Helm (2023 | Lansdale Catholic)
Helm had a much better offensive outing earlier in the day in a win over Perkiomen Valley, which was likely the game of the day, but she still left her imprint all over a decisive victory over Haverford to cap the Crusaders’ slate of games. She scored six points, grabbed nine boards, added a pair of steals and took a charge. Multiple times whether off a turnover or rebound she pushed the ball and went coast-to-coast. In the win over PV earlier in the day, Helm made some high-level shots and finishes that showcased her deep offensive game.

Cici Hernandez (2024 | Bethlehem Catholic)
Hernandez looks like someone the Hawks will be able to rely on in tough spots this season. She spearheaded her team to a comeback win over CR South in the second half on Sunday when she hit a big three and knocked down some clutch free throws. The strong guard is tough with the ball in her hands and uses that strength in her on-ball defense as well. She plays poised and under control, but can also step up to score when her team needs her to.

Lola Ibarrondo (2024 | Neshaminy)
Neshaminy’s point guard/ combo guard has one of the smoothest games around. She looks very natural with the ball in her hands and has great size as a 5-8 guard. Ibarrondo had the hot hand early in a win over Eastern York, finishing with 13 points that included multiple and-ones and a pull-up triple. Ibarrondo added a steal and a pair of assists and rebounds as well. Like her teammates she does a great job of moving without the ball in her hands and finding cutters when it is in her hand.

Gianna Johnson (2024 | George School)
Johnson took over for a stretch in the second half that nearly helped George pull off a comeback win over Abington. It was a glimpse at why the 6-5 forward picked up offers from Cincinnati and Lafayette this past spring and summer. She scored 13 points and grabbed 10 boards and blocked two shots, taking advantage of a small Ghosts lineup. Johnson’s touch around the basket is improving and she showed good footwork inside on offense. She was a force on the glass and her mere presence inside alters the game on defense as well.

Sophia Martinez (2024 | George School)

Martinez scored 14 points and racked up a handful of assists against Abington. Even against an incredibly quick, fast Ghosts’ lineup Martinez appeared at another speed at times. Her tight handle and quickness helped break the Abington press or get to the lane in the halfcourt. Her ability to shift direction with the ball still glued to her is unique. She knocked down a pair of threes and showed off some advanced finishing ability, including a ridiculous and-one she seemingly tossed behind her head.

Liliana Metrick (2025 | Council Rock South)
The 5-5 guard is young but she clearly has an advanced feel of the game. Both on offense and defense, she seemed to be a step ahead of her opponent in a loss to Bethlehem Catholic. Metrick was anticipatory and opportunistic on defense to come away with a handful of steals. On offense, she read the floor well and passed with anticipation and accuracy to to put her teammates in position to score. Despite being one of the smaller players on the floor, she is tough with the ball and has a strong handle to get past defenders. She’s at a disadvantage in size inside, but has a soft touch to help her score.

Reynah Rattliff (2025 | Archbishop Ryan)
After spending her freshman season at Archbishop Wood, the 5-7 guard is running the show for her father Jullian at Ryan. Rattliff has the shiftiness and handles to get into the lane with ease and her finishing ability with both hands his pretty advanced as seen with a pretty reverse off-hand lay up. She’s a willing passer, often looking to get her teammates involved and assisted Haley Davis on the game-winner against Quakertown. 

Faith Re (2025 | Cape Henlopen, Del.)
Re filled it up with 18 points against West Catholic. The sophomore guard has perfect shooting form and showed it off, knocking down four 3-point shots. She has a good feel for finding open space on the floor. She got herself into position to shoot on the outside and also slipped inside for a wide open layup on several occasions.

Ava Renninger (2024 | Archbishop Wood)
There aren’t many players as unafraid of contact as Renninger who doesn’t shy away from it all. The 5-foot-6 point guard scored 10 points and grabbed five boards in a win over Pennsbury, helping seal the game late when she used to crossover to get to the lane and finish through contact. Renninger is seemingly in the midst of every loose ball and rebound opportunity at both ends and that style of play also helped her come away with a steal on defense.

Arianna Seitz (2024 | Eastern York)
It looked like Neshaminy was ready to roll through Eastern York before Seitz started to get her team’s offense going in the second half to keep them competitive. Seitz knocked down a few shots from deep and had a nice floater in the lane. The 6-foot guard also brought the ball up the floor quite a bit to start the Eastern York offense, showcasing some playmaking to go along with her scoring ability.

Sofia Vitucci (2024 | Pennsbury)

Vitucci had to work extremely hard for her points but she still managed to finish with 18 of them, helping Pennsbury stay tight in a loss to Wood. She knocked down two threes but did most of her damage in the midrange or near the basket, going to the pull-up or playing off two in the lane after breaking down her defender. Her handle is exceptional, the behind the back move was particularly impressive on Sunday in helping give her some space.

Cire Worley (2023 | Abington)
Worley, a 6-foot guard/wing and UMass-Lowell recruit, has to play a little out of position on an Abington team with small guards, but she doesn’t let that impact her play, still finding a way to produce. She led the Ghosts with 21 points in a win over George School. She showed off her jumper from behind the arc and the midrange early. She also got some buckets in transition as the Ghosts defensive pressure let them get out on the break. Working against a George School squad with a lot of size, Worley was also relentless driving to the basket and helping her team crash the glass (five boards). She added two blocks and two steals on defense as well.

Reese Zemitis (2024 | Neshaminy)
The 6-foot sharpshooter only knocked down one three in a win over Eastern York, but she still finished with 12 points and also added five assists, three steals and a block to her stat line. Zemitis' game is so crisp whether that is her shooting stroke, moves in the post or passing ability. Her passing ability really stood out as something special on Sunday. She had two or three perfect one-handed transition passes and worked the two-man game to perfection with Lola Ibarrondo and Taylor Gurysh whether that was as a cutter or passer.
