2013-14 Daily News Girls Basketball All-Stars

(Continued)

Aly Leahy

Newburyport, Senior

Point Guard

The veteran Newburyport point guard finished her high school basketball career strong this past winter, averaging 8.4 points per game to go along with a team-leading 49 assists. A CAL All-Star and team co-MVP, Leahy regularly made big shots in key moments for the Clippers, with the biggest by far being the season-saving three she made to force double overtime in Newburyport's first round tournament matchup against Marblehead. Leahy is also a star in the classroom, where she maintains a GPA of 4.2. After graduating she will attend Union College in the fall to play soccer.

Amanda Martin

Amesbury, Junior

Guard

Amanda Martin was Amesbury's top offensive player this past season with 10.7 points per game, which led the team and earned her the team's Offensive MVP award at season's end. She was also a CAL All-Star, and she said the highlight of her season was hitting the go-ahead three-pointer against Dedham, whom Amesbury would go on to beat 51-45 in the team's first win of the year. Off the court, Martin has a GPA of 4.3 and plans on going to nursing school after she graduates next year, but first she hopes to have a productive senior season as captain next year.

Maddie Napoli

Amesbury, Freshman

Point Guard

Maddie Napoli made a major impact on Amesbury this season as a freshman, leading the team in both assists and steals while emerging as the team's top defensive player. Napoli averaged 8.6 points and 5.1 assists per game, and her best performance of the year came in the team's second matchup with Ipswich on Jan. 31, when she scored 18 points. After the season she was named the team's co-MVP on defense, and she said she looks up to head coach Chris Perry as a mentor.
