All-Class Girls Basketball Top 25

1. Garfield (3A)

2018-19 record: 23-4

2018-19 record: 24-2

If there’s one team that can come close to matching Garfield firepower, it is the GSL favorites with UW signee Jayda Noble

Off stellar summer, Grizzlies have experienced college-level talent that plays relentless style. It starts with PG Aaliyah Collins

4. Kentridge (4A)

2018-19 record: 26-3

Yes, powerful USC-bound post Jordyn Jenkins has one more year, which means Chargers still legitimate state contenders

5. Woodinville (4A)

2018-19 record: 24-5

If PG Veronica Sheffey takes next expected step in production alongside high work-rate PF Mia Hughes, watch out for Falcons

6. Eastlake (4A)

Backcourt questions loom for 4A champs, but frontcourt in great hands with ASU-bound Keeli Burton-Oliver and Haley Huard

Expect the same frantic-pressure, deep-shooting playing style with one high-impact addition – ninth grader Jenna Villa

9. University (4A)

2018-19 record: 16-8

With three NCAA Div. I signees, including slashing PG Ellie Boni, a Colorado State signee, Titans should be in state-title hunt

Few contenders have frontcourt quality and versatility like the Panthers, led by juniors Tamia Stricklin and Molly Moffitt

11. Bellarmine Prep (4A)

2018-19 record: 22-7

Some teams have point guard issues. Not the Lions, who start two ball-handling scorers in Callie Stevens and Makiah Reed

12. Prairie (3A)

2018-19 record: 25-2

Nobody is real sure what reigning state champions have beside senior PG Allison Corral. But c’mon, you doubt the Falcons?

13. Lake Stevens (4A)

2018-19 record: 12-9

Injuries decimated young Vikings group last year, but sharp-shooting SG Raigan Reed and talented sophomores are back

Not deep, but Crusaders stormed summer circuit with group of ninth graders expected to quickly raise program’s profile

19. Central Valley (4A)

2018-19 record: 22-5

High-motor SF M.J. Bruno gives Bears energy. Healthy PG Peyton Howard could give them shot at 4A GSL crown

A real sleeper out of the 4A KingCo, Eagles have new coach (Doug Crandall), emerging star (Alivia Stephens) and depth

21. Rogers of Puyallup (4A)

Don’t be surprised if UW softball commit Raigan Barrett leads 4A in scoring. She’s that kind of cold-blooded shooter

22. Hudson’s Bay (3A)

2018-19 record: 19-7

Is this the team to end Prairie’s reign in the 3A GSHL? PG Aniyah Hampton and the Eagles have higher next-step ambitions

Career scoring leader Ashlee Maldonado is gone, but program’s next star-in-making is a senior (PG Kameran Rodriguez)
