As the season ramps up some local talent and SportsForce athletes are gaining recognition on a large stage. ESPN’s HoopGurlz section took at look at a few of the top girls.

Malina and Maya Hood: There are two big reasons why you likely will see La Jolla Country Day emerge next year among the high-school powers even though it is missing a major presence in the middle — the Hood twins. They both may be only 5-10, but they have oodles of athleticism and Maya has the thickness and strength to neutralize players several inches taller. Malina is rangier and has more of a wing-guard game with better handles and a little more range on her shot. Maya gets a lot of her offense by mining the passing lanes on defense for breakaway layups, though she otherwise has a tendency you don’t often see — jogging back on offense — and has the gait of someone with painful knees. The two often feed off each other’s energy and get into athletic feeding frenzies that give the Torreys a dimension that’s difficult to prepare for.

Briteesha Solomon: At one point during La Jolla Country Day’s victory over a talented and certainly more-seasoned Villa Park team, Solomon rumbled into the lane and cupped the ball as if she meant to flush it. She is just 5-8, but hers is a convincing act because she explodes off the floor like a bottle rocket. As it was, Solomon laid the ball in, then slapped the glass for good measure.

Kelsey Plum: She can get lost amongst her pogo-stick teammates flying all over the court, but Plum, while just a freshman, could be La Jolla Country Day’s foundation player. At 5-9, she has good size and skills through which to run an offense and, with length and fluidity, is no athletic slouch herself. Her best move off the bounce is a nice, quick crossover, which can lead her to the rim, where she can be a creative finisher, or into a pull-up jumper. She has good body leverage, strength and form to be lethal from long distance. Plum also has a good sense of timing, as well as being in the right place, which portends well for her development at the point.

Sport: Girls Basketball Positions: Small Forward Height: 5’9” Class: 2011 School: Poway High School Poway, CA

It’s still early in the season and Katie Kuklok is already a repeat Athlete of the Week.  Kuklok became the all-time leading scorer for Poway Girls Basketball this past week. The 5’9” forward is only a junior and broke the record while having an 18 point game in a win over Vista. Kuklok hit the record early in her career compared to those that came before her and still has plenty of time to rack up points beyond it.  Kuklok’s coach, Jay Trousdale, told the San Diego Union-Tribune: “‘We’ve had a lot of capable scorers in this program, but Katie is the pure gym rat,’ Trousdale said. ‘She’s gotten the record the right way while there’s been a lot of success as a team.'”

Torrey Pines High School is counting their blessings for the addition of Megan McClurg to their varsity girls basketball team.  The first year varsity player shot, rebounded, and stole her way to a victory for the Falcons in La Jolla Country Day School’s 7th Annual Girl’s Basketball Sweet Sixteen Invitational.  The 5’6 junior guard finished with 14 points on 55% shooting including 2-3 from the 3 point arc.  McClurg also had 5 rebounds and 2 steals, including a highlight steal and length-of-the-court layup late in the 3rd quarter which saw Torrey Pines outscore Our Lady of Peace 16-6.  McClurg and her Falcons hope to continue their stellar play as the 2009-10 girl’s basketball season starts to pick up steam.
