Massengale Represents Lady Raiders In All-American Game Skills Competition

Ariel Massengale was full of smiles Monday during the skills competition at Chicago State University.

CHICAGO—Anyone who has crossed paths with the Bolingbrook High School girls basketball program knows Ariel Massengale's name is synonymous with winning.

The Lady Raiders point guard has been a part of 83 wins and three Class 4A state championships  over the last three years.

So maybe that's why it might have been a little surprising to see Massengale come up short in the 3-point contest during Monday's skills competition portion of the McDonald's All-American Games.

"It was fun. This was my first ever 3-point contest," she said. "But I'm looking forward to the big game Wednesday."

Massengale, who will be attending the University of Tennessee and playing under legendary coach Pat Summitt and the Lady Vols, scored 15 points -- narrowly missing the cut by two.

The Lady Raiders' senior leader will be starring on the East Team during Wednesday's game, with the scheduled tip-off time of 6:30 p.m.
