Catch Spokane Recruit Team- update

Launch Season FlyerAs of 3/27/2016 after 3 games against some stiff competition, the boys are holding their own and learning how to play a mans game!  The latest game was a close 66-56 loss to the Unforgiven Lounge team boasting players like Anthony Brown(former Shadle and WSU player) and last years GSL MVP Melik Hampton (Rogers).  Brown dropped 22 and Hampton 23, including a swat of former Pirate teammate and GSL leading scorer KJ Hassett (KJ is looking forward to the re match).

For Catch Spokane, KJ led the way with 16 while Jaelon Stith had 10 points, 13 rebounds.  GAME HIGHLIGHTS HERE

Volleyball- Ferris @ Mt Spokane Sept 22, 2015

bailey ricardAs the sun was setting on the outside of Mt Spokane high school, the ball was being thoroughly thrashed over the net on the inside.  The Wildcats took care of the visiting Saxons in three straight but not without a contested battle of spikes and digs!  Adrienne Dotson helped keep the slow starting Saxons down in the first set delivering 6 straight serves, which was a theme for her this night.  She had 4 straight in the second set and 6 again in the final set along with only 2 errors the entire game.  She showed an all around accurate game which was actually overshadowed by her two extremely powerful teammates, Bailey Ricard and Miahna Waters.   Ricard is obviously a top-notch player in the GSL and delivers a very fluid and powerful hammer when given the pass to kill.  Shes very experienced and well traveled in her ever-expanding career.     Waters, only a sophomore is slightly similar in delivery but more of a high flyer at the point of contact.  They both possess precise timing and force to destroy the opponents net defense.  They are very fun to watch and its intriguing to see where they will end up in the years to come.

Ferris is not without great players, they did start a little scattered as a team and had trouble making up the difference in the first set.  After that however they played much better and were kept at attention by their leader Shaelyn Pearson.  I must say that most teams possess a player who stands out in one or two categories, but Shaelyn is a different beast who seems to shine in every aspect on the court.  She is the vocal leader and coach on the floor, she is the Saxons top setter, she is given many opportunities to hit and she flies all over the court making athletic plays after play.  I was very impressed with her court presence and overall spunk.  Haley Carl was another game changer for the Saxons as an experienced senior who can smash with the best of them.  Her serve stood out as a smooth compact stroke that breaks just over the net with force.  She too is a player with good ball control and court recognition who showed she can get it done from the back line if need be.   Annika Briggs, Taylor Rider, and Summer Reid are all underclassmen with potential and will help them to victories this season at least.


The REAL season

starI want to hear what you do during the off-season and away from school teams.  Most of the “good stuff” is not even reported.  People don’t know what you’re doing because nobody in Spokane covers it.  Tell me so I can tell everyone else!

  • Who do you train with?
  • What other teams are you affiliated with?
  • What awards have you won?
  • What’s the highest level you’ve played individually?
  • best game?
  • best move?
  • most clutch play?

Give me some stories Ladies and Gents.  I’m here to get to know you as well as promote you!  We want Spokane to be a hotbed of college recruits!  Get everyone playing at the next level!  I can keep it anonymous or be your cheerleader, you tell me.  Either email me directly catchspokane@yahoo.com or fill out the form.  Let’s get the word out together!




LET YOUR RECRUITING COACH KNOW THAT YOU ARE COMING AND WOULD LIKE AN EVALUATION: Call the camp office (the phone number should be on the brochure) a couple days before the camp that you are attending and tell the person who answers the telephone your name, position and high school. Ask which coach recruits your area or position. Write down their name and get their direct email address and phone number. Ask to be transferred to them—let them know or leave a voicemail telling them that you are coming to the camp in a couple days (don’t call much sooner, they will forget), that you are emailing your highlight tape right now and would like an evaluation, if possible, at the camp. Email them a link to your most recent highlights and include your name, high school, position, grad year, height, weight and contact information along with the camp date that you will be attending. When you arrive to check-in, ask a staff member if your recruiting coach is there and to point them out or see if they are able to introduce you to them. Tell them you are excited to be there say you would hope to get an evaluation and see if they had a chance to look at the highlights that you sent them.
