Fifteen boys and girls basketball players from Washington were nominated for the McDonald’s All-America Game on Tuesday.
Among the local players were five-star girls prospects Dalayah Daniels of Garfield and Kentridge’s Jordyn Jenkins, who learned Tuesday her season is over because of a torn ACL.
Among others nominated were Todd Beamer’s Aaliyah Alexander, Eastlake’s Keeli Burton-Oliver and Sela Heide of Mount Si. The Renton boys saw four seniors nominated, something that’s become a trend in recent years.
More than 900 boys and girls across the nation were nominated. The 24 boys and 24 girls who make the team will be announced at noon on Jan. 23 on ESPN. The All-American Game is April 1 in Houston.
