Kairniesha "Shay' Trent, Alessia "Danielle" Conley shine at Bragging Rights

During the Christmas break, Craigmont and Wooddale squads traveled to Cincinnati, OH  to participate in the 9th Annual Braggin’ Rights Classic.

Junior Shay Trent and freshman Danielle Conley received some nice evaluations from Blue Star Media about their game.

Recruiting in the city of Memphis is often a little like mining for gold. It’s a lot of tedious, hard work but when you find what you’re looking for…its well worth the time. If you’re watching Wooddale High (Memphis, Tenn.) you don’t have to look too hard to see something bright and shiny. Junior swing player Shay Trent is an explosive athlete that does what coaches love, she makes plays. The 5-9 Trent seems to get the most out of every inch of the floor. She’s aggressive and physical defensively, crashes the boards and then gets out and fills the lanes like a sprinter headed for the wire. Just for good measure, she can and will take it herself at times weaving through traffic and going coast to coast. When she attacks, she accelerates with impressive quickness but also makes use of a crossover that will get most opponents leaning and out of their stance. Right now you might describe her in baseball terms as a “utility” player who makes contributions all over the floor but her future lies at the guard spot and that future could be a special one.

Alessia Conley doesn’t give the impression of being a freshman in appearance or play. The 5-7 Craigmont (Memphis, Tenn.) point guard has a solid build and an ever growing assertive presence on the floor. The ball skills are there to create and the vision is in place to see the floor. Her change of speed is her go to weapon on the break. As with others in this report, she needs to do more without the ball to make her game more complete.
