NH Girls Compete at USJN Nationals

Last week many local girls basketball players got a chance to compete in one of the country's biggest AAU tournaments, play against some of the country's top talent and gain valuable exposure to college coaches. It was the 2012 USJN Nationals in Washington, DC. There were 240 teams in the tournament and all of them were 17U teams. 22 different states were represented, including New York, Ohio, Texas and Kentucky.

Two NH girls were named to the all-tournament team, and they were guard Jamie Sherburne (pictured at left) from Bishop Guertin and Oyster River Claire McCarthy. Not only is a great accomplishment for these two young ladies to be selected to the all-tournament team over so many other players, but since they're only incoming juniors they were playing up an age group which makes it even more impressive.

Here is a complete list of the NH girls who played in the tournament.
