There is an old saying that it is what an athlete does in the summer that leads to success during the season. If that is truly the case, then you can expect Emma Kate McBride of Weston High to be one of the premier girls basketball players in the area this coming basketball season.
While most young ladies her age have been spending the summer at the beach to improve their tan, McBride has spent countless hours in the gymnasium and perfecting her skills as a member of the AAU affiliate LA Elite 18U Basketball team.
Two weekends ago, the daughter of Rebecca and Jeffrey McBride saw her dedicated effort came to full fruition as McBride scored a team high 42 points over four games to paced the LA Elite squad to a third place finish in the prestigious Pre-Nationals Tune-Up Tournament held in Dallas, TX.
It wouldn’t have been surprising if McBride wanted to take some time off after such a rigorous weekend but instead five days later she was off to Arkadelphia, AR to take part in an elite camp hosted by Henderson State University.
“I had a fantastic time at @ReddiesWBB elite camp! The experience and energy was great. Big thanks to @Coach_JThomas @coach_harveywbb and their team for teaching me ways to better my game.” tweeted McBride.
As stated, it is what an athlete does in the summer that leads to success during the season. Don’t be surprised if next summer, instead of being a camp member at an university, she is a scholarship player.
