Each post contains analysis, key players and more from the USA TODAY Sports Sports in consultation with the USA TODAY High School Sports staff.
NO. 25 BISHOP MIEGE
Location: Shawnee Mission, Kansas
2018-19 record: 24-0
Final 2017-18 Super 25 ranking: Not Ranked
Head Coach: Terry English
Star guard Peyton Verhulst followed up her well-rounded 2018-19 season of 17 points, seven rebounds, six assists, four steals and three blocks per game by playing on the USA Basketball FIBA U-16 team. She’s only just entering junior year.
Bishop Miege has gone undefeated in three of the last five seasons, and the two years in between, the Stags went a combined 44-7. Spread that out one more season, and the team has won five championships in six years.
With all that experience and a winning pedigree in a proven system to go with the talent on the team, more success seems a foregone conclusion.
