Lindsay Harrison is already on to the next chapter of her basketball career.

But first, she put a bow on the last.

Harrison, a Yorkville graduate who will play collegiately at Lewis, participated in the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association (IBCA) All-Star games held last month in Pontiac.

Newark's Dylan Patrick was also selected to play in the boys Class 1A/Class 2A game.

Harrison had six points, six rebounds and four blocks for the North squad in a 104-72 win over the South in the Class 3A/Class 4A girls game.

"It was really cool – I wasn't expecting it at all," Harrison said. "It was cool to play with so many other girls with so much talent."

Harrison's family and grandparents attended, and Yorkville coach Kim Wensits took a minibus down so former teammates could make it.

One of Harrison's roommates in Pontiac was a former AAU teammate, Antwainette Walker of St. Francis, who was named North MVP of the game.

"I guess it gave me an idea of what college will be like with all that talent," Harrison said.

Harrison is staying plenty busy this summer, basketball-wise. She gets shots up at her high school. Three days a week, she plays in a summer league with other local college players in Elmhurst.

"[Lewis] seems me more as a 3/4 guard, where in high school I was more of a post. It's a new transition for me," said Harrison, who plans to study special education at Lewis and get a coaching certificate. "I'm working on getting my quickness and improving my shot."
