Although some said it couldn’t be done and some said it shouldn’t be done, Sonny Johnson executed his vision of a national girl’s camp to perfection! Over 300 girls from across the country including California, Texas, Florida, New York and beyond arrived at Garfield Heights High School this past weekend to display their skills to a host of national media outlets. Not only did Johnson’s event attract several of the best high school girls in the nation, girls as young as 4th grade participated in this first year event as well. Some of the headliners in the high school division included nationally ranked Sole Williams, Madison Greene, Mya Perry, Mari Bickley, Zennia Thomas, Morgan Bradford, Jaden Newman, Lanae Riley, Jada Ward and Josie Lewis.  Just let me say this, these girls put on a show!  Of course, we focused most of our attention on the middle and elementary school divisions and were super impressed with the amount of talent present in the gym.  Although it’s impossible to see every standout over the weekend, we evaluated over 50 players! Some of the best girls we saw included: Tatiana Mason, Chaniy’ra McDowell, Kaleigh Lucas, Anyla Parker, Shania James, Se’Crette Carter, Khloe Ison, Sidney Butera, Zay Shepherd, Victoria Gambles, Mariah Sain and Nina Nardecchia. Below is a more complete list of standout performers we evaluated over the weekend. We expect to see many of the above players at our October 23rd Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase.  Congratulations to Sonny Johnson and his staff for a job well done!
