Blue Star Media was present at Classic in the Country and do a great job (in my humble opinion) providing exposure for high school girls basketball. They offered a recap of each day’s action at CITC and then posted a wrap up of the entire event. As you read through it, they point out both the strengths and areas of improvement for players. You can read the entire write-up and find links to the game by game coverage on the Blue Star Media website.
Syd got some love from them even though she was sidelined with her ACL injury. Here’s what they wrote about her:
Sydney Brackemyre – Clinton Massie – Brackemyre recently joined the much too large ACL sorority and was on crutches but actively involved on the bench with her teammates and coaches. Just a speed bump in a very promising future.
They also highlighted some of the top girls in our area including Alyssa Rice, Makayla Waterman, Kathryn Westbeld and Chelsea Welch. There are many strong players in Ohio.
It was great to see Kasey Uetrecht under the “A Little More on a Few You May or May Not Know” portion of the page. Here’s what they wrote about her:
Kasey Uetrecht – Clinton Massie – A 6-0 junior, Uetrecht has a good combination of size and perimeter skills. With standout Sydney Brackemyre sidelined, the wing/forward is stepping up for the Falcons both on the wing and in the post. Though somewhat upright, she demonstrated the ability to handle the ball on the break or off the drive from the elbows. At other points she was efficient posting up and becoming an option around the rim. Her versatility presents a challenge for opposing defenses in terms of matching up with size or perimeter skills. She was 4 for 14 in Clinton Massie’s lone game but added 6 rebounds and 6 assists in the 60 to 47 loss to Proctorville Fairland. There’s plenty of basketball in her future, what level remains to be seen.
Good to see Kasey get some well-deserved attention for her play.
