Prospect headed to 2010 McDonald’s Shootout

SHARE Prospect headed to 2010 McDonald’s Shootout

Next year’s McDonald’s Shootout, celebrating its 20th year, will include the Prospect girls basketball team, promoter Jim O’Boye said Monday.

O’Boye extended an invitation to Prospect coach Martha Kelly before the start of Monday night’s marquee game featuring Young vs. Wheeling, the state’s top two ranked teams in Class 4A.

Kelly said she expects to receive final approval from Prospect Girls Athletic Coordinator Jean Rezny.

The Knights (15-5) are experiencing a revival under their second year coach, who has plenty talent to build around with three returning starters for next season: junior Lexi Glennon, junior Rachel Hunt and 6-foot-2 sophomore Sarah Hunt. Prospect’s bench features Sarah Winans, Alyssa Baker and Marissa Pettenuzzo.

Kelly has been exchanging e-mail with O’Boye in the last month with the hope of receiving a bid. Prospect’s opponent for next year’s McDonald’s Shootout will not be decided until next season.

In one of Kelly’s e-mails, she even included a note about Mount Prospect’s recent top ranking as the Best Place in America to Raise Kids, according to Business Week magazine.
