Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Wonder Women

The Catholic League girls hoops scene is mighty packed with high-level talent this year.
Here's a look at a few of those star-studded Lady CHSL Cage Crazies that Burney thinks deserves a shout-out;
Candace Leatherwood-Sam Bauer-Sierra La Grande (FH Mercy) – This three-headed monster out of the backcourt is as consistent and deadly as any trifecta in the state
Allie Gorcyca (FH Mercy) – The ultimate "Glue Gal", does all the little things on the court to makes all the big things happen…..aka AG=A1
Taylor Jones (FH Mercy) – Flourishing presence on the wing that could easily be putting up 20 a night if her team wasn't already so balanced in the firepower department, only a junior, will be one of the Catholic League's most dangerous weapons next season
Sarah LewAllen (Pontiac NDP) – Pound-for-pound could be the CHSL most complete all-around player, has very few if any flaws in her game, can shoot, handle, board, slash, lead and finish with the best her league has to offer……TAKE IT 2 THA BANK!!
Nicole DiFore & Lindsay Klei (Pontiac NDP) – "Dynamite D" and "Special K" are to be approached with caution……that's how flammable their respective games are right now in the Fighting Irish backcourt
Kara Holinski & Laura Bruton (Birmingham Marian) – Just so steady, so gritty, so gutty, so dependable, so fearless, so hard-working, shall I continue?
The Thomas Sisters (Birmingham Marian) – These girls are the THRILL AND CHILL twosome, big sis Bailey thrills 'em at the point and little sis Samantha chills them in the post…..MARK THAT DOWN!!
Brittany Gray & Jaeda Robinson (Birmingham Marian) – A pair of "Sleeper Specials" on the wing for the Mustangs that sum up the term LADY GRIND-A-LOTS with everything they do for their teams on the floor
Anna Robb (Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes) – There's a reason she's got that BLING BLING (2 state title rings)…..A-RIZZLE is a BALLER & A SHOT CALLER whether she's hooping it up in her WOLL Blues on the court or just kicking it in the halls
Mary Joe Allen (Clarkston Everest Academy) – Mary Joe AWESOME is more like it!!
Jenna Rogers (Wixom St. Catherine) – Pure GUNNER!!! Preeminent Playmaker!!! Can you say Division title?
Renee Fisher (Madison Heights Bishop Foley) – Four words; BEAST ON THE BLOCKS!!!
