SCHOOL: Greenbrier

CLASS: Junior

POS.: Guard

HT.: 6-0

HIGHLIGHTS: Steele is quickly leaving her mark as Greenbrier’s sharpshooter in big games. She scored 19 points in a hard-fought win over Lakeside in mid-December to open region play, followed by 25 points, five rebounds, five steals and three blocks in a 53-42 victory over rival Evans this past Friday. She added 17 points, seven assists and three blocks in a 63-35 win over Alcovy on Tuesday. With Steele, Yasmine Avery and Natalie Wilson leading the way, Greenbrier is 13-4 and 3-0 in the region under first-year coach Brandon Dotson.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: “I’m seeing a consistent effort to get better and it’s contagious. She’s a leader and a student of the game. She’s a sponge. She soaks up everything and she’s a hard worker. We’re making strides, but we have a long way to go. They’re starting to see their potential, but we’re taking it one game at a time.” — Greenbrier coach Brandon Dotson

WHAT SHE SAID: “I feel like my team is just doing well working together and our new coaching staff is helping build us back. We’re just going out there doing what we’re told to do and it’s working. I’m just out there having fun.”

— David Lee, staff writer
