January girls players of the MONTH - Gustafson (Ethan), Parsley (Flandreau), Jewett Brookings

Ethan’s Karley Gustafson (Class B), Brookings (Michaela Jewett) and Flandreau’s Hannah Parsley are Sacred Hoops January Players of the month.

By Rich Winter

Our Sacred Hoops January players-of-the-month are all putting up MONSTER numbers, and not coincidentally, the ladies these teams play for are having major successes this season.

Class AA - Michaela Jewett - Brookings


Not much this 6-foot senior on Mitch McLagan’s squad can’t do…Great defender in the post, can go with either hand…3-point range and runs the floor well.

Of the four losses this season, those squad have a combined 13 losses on the season..

Right in the thick of a Class AA field right now!

O’Gorman 16-2

SFLincoln 12-5

Brandon Valley 14-3

Brookings 11-4

Flandreau’s Parsley had a MONSTROUS month of January:


During the month of January Megan Severtson’s junior forward Hannah Parsley put her name in the Flier record books with a single-game scoring record…Parsley is Miss Energy and she’s a load to stop…Parsley averaged 20 ppg during the month of January.

For the season…check out these averaged.

18 ppg, 10.4 rpg, 4.7 apg, 4.9 steals per game…some tests coming up for these ladies..MCM on Friday and a so-so Parker squad that spanked the Fliers earlier this year.

Class B January POM - Ethan senior Karley Gustafson


What will Tom Young’s Ethan Rustlers do when Karly Gustafson graduates this spring…Probably reload like they always do.

That said, Gustafson, a 6-foot forward with guard abilities is wreaking havoc on the Class B field and standing at 19-0 with one game (TDA) remaining on their schedule.

This team is tough…Last two outings…Beat 18-2 Corsica/Stickney (in Stickney, 54-45)…Beat 14-4 Freeman last night 50-31 with Gustafson recording 20 points and 7 BOARDS!!!
