If Jessica Norris is nervous, she hides it well.
The Center Grove senior looks forward to being one of eight competitors at tonight’s American Family Insurance High School 3-point Championship at Carmel High School.
Other participants qualified mainly because of national reputation; Norris, who knocked down 76 triples this past season for a 20-7 Trojans squad, did so accumulating the most online votes from a pool of 16 finalists.
Yet regardless how she got there, Norris is happy for the opportunity.
“I know our whole coaching staff is coming to watch, and I think (Center Grove teammates) Regan (Wentland) and Bri (Gliesmann) will be there, too. I hope I do well so I can be on TV,” she said.
Here are the players Norris will be competing against, where they attend high school and where they have signed to play college basketball:
Kennedy Burke;Sierra Canyon, California;UCLA
Faith Suggs;Homewood-Flossmoor, Illinois;Duke
Katie McWilliams;South Salem, Oregon;Oregon State
Danni Williams;Clovis, New Mexico;Texas A&M
Tiara Murphy;South Bend, Washington;Purdue
Aliyah Mazyck;Myers Park, North Carolina;USC
