TC's Heath selected to Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Top 60 Senior Workout

Triton Central point guard Taylor Heath will be one of 60 seniors from around the state of Indiana participating in Hoosier Basketball Magazine’s Top 60 Senior Workout Sunday at Beech Grove High School.

 

There will be two sessions. Thirty girls from northern and southern Indiana will participate in the first session at 1 p.m. The remaining players, primarily from central Indiana, will follow in the second session at 3:30 p.m.

 

The Top 60 Senior Workout includes the state’s top two scorers – Courtney Blakely of Hammond Noll (31.7 ppg) and Ariana Wiggins of Heritage Christian (27.6 ppg) – along with 11 other senior standouts who average more than 20 ppg.

 

There are eight players representing 2021 IHSAA state finalist teams.

 

More than 20 of the Top 60 selectees have signed with Division I universities.

 

Beech Grove coach Kristin Raker will direct both sessions. Also invited to join the Top 60 staff are Hammond Noll’s Vanita Golston, Silver Creek’s Scott Schoen, Jac-Cen-Del’s Scott Smith and Penn’s Kristi Ulrich.

 

Heath averaged 14.7 points. 9.5 assists and 3.3 steals for Triton Central this past season. She will play basketball next season at Hanover College.

 

Tenleigh Phelps, also a Triton Central senior, was selected for the Top 60 Senior Workout but will be unable to participate due to a knee injury that forced her to miss her entire senior season. Phelps is committed to play basketball next season at Youngstown State.

 

Other notable players attending the workout are Yorktown’s Carley Culberson, Jac-Cen-Del’s Paige Ledford, Columbus North Alexa McKinley, Greenwood Christian’s Isabella Reed and Mt. Vernon’s Lexi Shelton.

 

Both sessions are open to the public with an admission fee of $8 ($5 for students).
