Eliana Vinca

Eliana is entering her second year as a Legend.  Last year she played on the 6th grade team and also played on the spring 7/8th grade tournament team.

In her combined seasons she had 210 rebounds, 173 points and 64 blocked shots.


Brighid "Hot Dog" Duffy

Brighid is entering her second year as a Legend.

Brighid brought spirit and spunk to the Legends.  She found herself in the middle of many big plays during the season including having a key assist in a win at the Scranton Shootout. She tripled her rebounding and steal totals from the Fall season to the Winter Season.  As the youngest player on the team she had to earn her minutes.  She made major contributions in the 2nd place finish at the Lewisburg Fall Festival tournament and the Scranton Spring Shootout where she scored late in the last game to excite the crowd.


Emma Kaniecki

Emma is entering her second year as a Legend. 

Emma is a strong all-around guard that can score driving or from deep.  She uses her strength well on defense and rebounding.  She was third on the team in scoring (142 points), and rebounds (103).  Emma had 13 points in a victory over Beck’s in the Fall JMC League.  She also had 69 steals.  She had 14 points and three 3-pointers in a big win over Tyrone in the Moshannon Valley Winter League.  Emma extended her shooting range as the season went on hitting five three pointers during the winter season.


Kacie Kempf

Kacie is entering her second year as a Legend

Kacie developed from a role player early in the year into a key part of the guard rotation in the winter season.  Her intense defense often made a difference in games and as the season progressed her offense became a weapon as well.  She finished the season 4th on the team with 25 assists.  She also had 33 points and 29 steals.  Had a strong Scranton Shootout when her defense turned a game around for the Legends, and had a season high 8 points in a victory over NEPA NXT.


Elise "The Beast" Bechtel

Elise is entering her third year as a Legend

Elise is a tough-as-nails point guard who is solid with the ball.  She is a playmaker and can score on drives and from downtown.  Elise led her team in assists (48), was fourth in scoring (123 points), and tied for first in steals (85).  She also grabbed over 80 rebounds and blocked 24 shots.  She was second on the team in three pointers with 6.  Elise had great success against the Storm hitting the go ahead layup in the final moments of the Legends first victory over them and scoring a team high 8 in the playoffs.  She had an outstanding Scranton shootout scoring 21 points.


Juliet "Violet" Jones

Juliet is entering her second year as a Legend.

Juliet is a fundamentally sound, consistent player for the Legends as an undersized post.  She is an excellent team defender and is an effective rebounder and scorer around the basket.  She is always in the right place and has great hands. She also helps on the press break with her fast decisions.  She finished the year with 53 rebounds, 12 assists and 28 points. She was third on the team in shooting percentage.  She scored 6 points in the Scranton Shootout and had a career-high 7 against Mifflin County. 


Shae "Stadium" Dwyer

Shae completed her first year as a Legend.

Shae joined the team at the end of the Fall season and worked her way into the rotation at point guard and the three-guard very quickly.  She is an excellent ball handler who can weave through traffic to find players in transition for good scoring opportunities.  In the half-court offense she is active on the boards and moves the ball well. Shae finished second on the team with 47 assists, grabbed 62 rebounds and had 42 steals to go with 19 points.  She led the team with 11 assists and 10 steals in the Scranton Shootout and led the team with 18 assists in the Moshannon Valley Winter League.


Kylee "Killer" Collins

Kylee is entering her second year as a Legend

Kylee became a powerful force for the Legends in the paint on the defensive end and showed continuous improvement through the season.  She grabbed 60 of her 72 rebounds in the winter/spring season. Kylee scored 24 points on the season as she developed as inside game and started to pull down offensive rebounds.  On defense Kylee defended the paint and was a vocal leader on the court calling out cutters and open players.  She had a season high 8 rebounds against Dubois.
