It’s one thing to have your name attached to the top returning player in Shasta County. It’s another to show up and ball out in the first week after being chosen as the No. 1 returning player.
But Enterprise sophomore Abby Shoff did just that. After a stellar freshman campaign, Shasta County Sports chose her as the best returner among all county ballers.
Well, the 6-foot hybrid post/forward/guard showed up as the Hornets went 1-2 at the Cartwright Classic against D-II schools Roseville and Hill and D-III Christian Brothers.
Shoff scored 26 in a 68-20 blowout win over Hills, while adding 10 points and 12 boards in a loss to Roseville and 17 and 12 in the 58-55 loss to Christian Brothers. She’s averaging more than 17 per night on the young season.
Anthony Williams is a proponent of playing up in order to better prepare his squad for the rigors of Eastern Athletic League play, the Northern Section playoffs and beyond.
And in the first test without last year’s section MVP Jadyn Matthews, it looks as though the Hornets — and Shoff — get high marks despite the two defeats.
Enterprise returned home, beat Fall River on Tuesday (sans Shoff) and prepares for a Harlan Carter run starting Thursday against Placer.
