Temi Carda, Lakeville North, 5-7, jr. guard: "She's been well-known for her ability to attack the basket, but this season she has taken her game to a new level with her three-point shooting," Panthers coach Shelly Clemons said.
Courtney Fredrickson, Minnetonka, 6-2, sr. forward: The school's all-time leading scorer and rebounder "has been a standout leader in the 2016 class for years," Skippers coach Leah Dasovich said.
Rae Johnson, St. Michael-Albertville, 5-6, jr. guard: "A true gym rat," Knights coach Kent Hamre said. "She has become hard to guard because she is constantly developing her game."
Sarah Kaminski, Minnehaha Academy, 5-9, sr. guard: The Redhawks are 25-3 with Kaminski surrounded by four underclassmen in the starting five. "The best all-around player we've ever had at Minnehaha Academy," Redhawks coach Josh Thurow said.
LaShayla Wright-Ponder, Bloomington Kennedy, 6-1, sr. forward: A true power forward who loves offensive rebounding. Averaged over 25 points per game for the Eagles.
