Tonight we are taking a look at some of the freshman who have made teams and already starting to make an impact on the high school teams. First of all, such a small percentage of players on high school rosters are freshman. Congratulations to all of these players for making your school’s varsity roster.
It’s somewhat funny to us that there are so many “pairs” of impact freshman. To have two on one team is really uncommon but we have five sets of these pairs. Two are sister teams, so that is understandable. But these teams seem set up for the future with girls who are excelling at their age level.
Notre Dame, Hoboken and Morristown have impact pairs all near the apex in the top dozen. Gwen and Hailey Atkins of Morristown, Cassady Smith and Maia Cinca from Notre Dame, and Madison and Morgan Walia-Peters have had huge impacts for teams who have a combined record of 8-2 thus far. The remaining top 10 are from Kent Place, Hillsborough, WWPS, and Sparta who all have yet to lose. So the impact of having a standout freshman is through the roof.
Again, congrats to these players listed below. We currently have 105 freshman active in our database of 2,368 players with stats in NJ.Freshman-091521
