Any coach would welcome the return of a three-year starter who averaged 14.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game last season.
But it’s attributes like leadership and court awareness that make Paige Ravenscroft a basketball coach’s dream.
“Paige is a very talented player both on the inside and the perimeter,” says Rich Olson, head coach of the Lincoln Lutheran High School girls team. “Her biggest asset to the team is her leadership and awareness of the game,” he said.
The senior standout had personal-high games of 26 points and 16 rebounds last season. The Warriors’ team leader also averaged 2.1 steals and 1.5 assists per game while shooting 41% from the field for the season and 73% from the free-throw line. She also shot 27% beyond the arc.
The impressive statistics she compiled last season led to All-Conference honors and All-State honorable mention. She has been an All-Conference and All-State selection each of the past two seasons and has also made the LIT All-Tournament team the past two years.
Ravenscroft is also a leader in the classroom and in the community. She is a member of National Honor Society and a lead member in Lincoln Lutheran’s Community Outreach team.
College basketball is on the radar of the Warriors’ team leader. Her skillset is getting noticed by coaches at a number of Division II and Division III schools.
She has yet to finalize her college plans.
