Seniors Madison Gettler (18.6 points per game) and Paige McAfee (10.8 points per game) are the top scorers, but they offer a lot more to the team than just scoring. Gettler also leads the team in rebounds (7.1 per game), assists (53) and steals (61) while McAfee is second on the team with 24 3 points.

Senior Macy Ticknor (6.1 PPG), rookie Marissa Spieker (4.8 PPG), junior Allison Spieker (4.0 PPG) and second year Molly Venteicher (2.8 PPG) also had their own contributions. this season.
“Everyone has been a leader in their own way,” Hodges said. “Whether it’s a girl on the floor or on the bench. Everyone always encourages and uplifts girls when there is a mistake.
CAM is scheduled to host West Central Valley and ACGC on Thursday and Friday of this week. Next comes their showdown with the Spartans and a chance to virtually win a conference title.
“I think we need to continue to focus on teamwork, sharing the ball and free throws,” Hodges said. “We’ll have to focus on (Tatum) Grubbs and (Macy) Emgarten and keep their points low. Play a tough defense against them.
