A former two-time captain at St. Paul's School and a former Calculus Award winner, Ruby Cheetham is the most experienced player of this year's class. The New Hampshire-native likes to shoot the deep ball, and enjoys being challenged, making continual strides on defense while working to improve her basketball IQ. Cheetham led St. Paul to a 54-23 win against St. Mark's back in January, when she scored 14 points, 12 of which came from beyond the arc.

"Ruby has the ability to be a solid ball handler and shooter for us," Reyes said. "She is strong, can play physical, and is always in great shape, which should make her a great asset to our team."
Elaine Lin
Brea, Calif. / Troy
5-5, Guard
Elaine Lin captained her junior varsity team for a time at Troy High School, and even once earned Team MVP while earning two-time CIF honors. She also has a propensity to compete in the classroom as the salutatorian of her graduating class. On the court, Lin has the capability to shoot and score but also describes herself as a "relentless rebounder."
"Elaine comes from a great high school program and is bringing that experience with her," Reyes said. "She has a high basketball IQ and will be able to handle the ball and drive to the basket for us."
Jillian Reed
Manhattan Beach, Calif. / Mira Costa
5-11, Forward
Jillian Reed's height will provide the Beavers with another presence in the front court. Reed comes from a winning culture as a member of the Bay League champions and in the classroom won the Solar Cup Rookie Division in 2017 while being named an "outstanding intern" during her time with Boeing Satellite Systems. She has also competed in cross country and track & field in the past. She values her grit and determination.
"Jillian will be an energy driver for us," Reyes said. "She will be consistent in her work ethic and her ability to be coachedand as a result should be a great teammate."
