Both teams an outstanding showing today. D-1 Ambassadors 17u went 2-1 on the day with that tough loss to a nice athletic San Antonio Heat team. 17u started the day with a great win over the Austin Glory & then went up against a tough West Texas Elite squad. With great guard play from 2011 5’5 Megan Brauer & the all around play of Julie Dirienze , D-1 took off in the second half and never looked back.
2011 W Julie Dirienze has a nice smooth game. Julie has nice size coupled with good athleticism and the ability to shoot the ball. We have talked to several college coaches over the last week and they are really showing interest in the junior from New Braunfels.
2011 G 5’5 Megan Brauer has great range with the ability to burn you from deep. The junior from Temple can handle the ball very well. and loves to get out and run. Megan can finish at the basket with either hand and don’t mind taking you off the dribble. Megan is also getting some nice looks, and will do good things as we approach the live periods in July.
Team 2014 has to one of the best skilled groups in the area. The young group of 7th/8th tipped of the tournament against the Austin Glory 16u. With great athleticism and a high skill level, the youngsters showed that age doesn’t matter. Team 2014 jumped all over the glory and took a commanding lead down the stretch to close it out. 2015 W 5’6 Kennedy Harris continues to dominate the paint. Not only can she get in the paint, but the 7th grader can take you off the bounce or burn you from the outside. Look for Harris to be a major prospect in the class of 2015.

2014 F 5’7 Dominique White has really played good basketball over the last few tournaments. Dominique has a nice skill level, and she is continuing to develop her game. The 8th grader from Pflugerville Connally High School has a nice shot, good ball handling, and passing skills.
2014 G 5’5 Tiffany Fowler has bloomed like a flower. Tiffany has really become a true all around player. I remember when Tiffany came to the team about 3 years ago, I said this girl can really shoot but she moves very slow. With hard work & dedication Tiffany has majorly picked up her speed which added quickness to her shot.The 8th grader from Round Rock has great will take you off the bounce or burn you from deep. look for Tiffany to be a nice prospect in the class of 2014.
Team 2016 headed to Big Spring this weekend to compete in the Dream Team Classic. Coach Brenton & his young group has really turned it on in their first year. Lead by 2016 W Kianna Ray & 2016 G Mikayla Christian the young group plans to do big things in the near future.
