Coach’s comment: “She was a matchup problem for most teams with her ability to get by her man and create scoring opportunities for herself or easy baskets for her teammates,” said West Jefferson coach Gary Skidmore, her father.
What others are saying: “One of the best point guards I've seen play during my coaching career,” Cole Valley Christian coach Bret Moehlmann said.
What’s next: Skidmore has offers from the College of Idaho and Westminster.
KALLEE NICKERSON, WEST JEFFERSON
The Panthers’ leading scorer the past two years, the 5-9 senior wing poured in 15.0 points per game at state to lead West Jefferson to the title. She finished her senior year averaging 14.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 steals a game.
HOLLY GOLENOR, COLE VALLEY CHRISTIAN
The 6-foot sophomore post runs the floor and uses her size and athleticism to pose a dual-threat to defenses. She averaged 12.1 points and 9.6 rebounds, including 14 points and 13 rebounds during the district and state tournaments.
HAILEY SULLIVAN, GRANGEVILLE
The Bulldogs asked a lot of their 5-7 senior point guard, building their offense and defense around her when two senior starters went down with ACL injuries. Sullivan delivered, leading Grangeville to state while averaging 14.8 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.2 steals and 3.7 assists.
HADDI WILLIAMS, RIRIE
With only two seniors on the roster, Ririe coach Damien Smith said the 5-9 junior post and the motor of the team willed the Bulldogs into the state tournament. Williams averaged 13.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 1.1 assists a game.
