NO. 1 ARCHBISHOP MITTY
Location: San Jose, Calif.
Preseason Rank: 1
2017-18 record: 29-1
Final 2017-18 Super 25 ranking: 1
The defending USA Today Super 25 champions are the preseason favorite to do it all over again largely because they’ve got the No. 1 high school girls basketball player in the country on the floor in Haley Jones.
Jones does-it-all for the Monarchs and has capable help in fellow returning starters Ania McNicholas and Hunter Hernandez.
Katie Springs and Ashley Hiraki should be key contributors this season and when transfers Olivia Williams and Marley Langi become eligible on January 1, the Monarchs will be one of the deepest teams in the country.
