The Havoc City Elite program out of Washington DC enjoyed a very successful summer, and the club will be looking to wrap up the 2015 season on a strong note at the upcoming Marietta Tournament of Champions.
“We have had a very good summer at every level,” said Coach James “Boogie” Washington. “We won a lot of games, and we’ve been getting a lot of interest from the college coaches, so we’re very happy with the way the summer went.
“A big part of that was being involved with the All Star Girls Report League. We were really pleased when we were invited to join the league, and it was everything we had hoped it would be. The organization was great in every way, and the college coaches who attended the events made a big difference for our kids.”
Havoc City is now preparing to travel to the All Star Girls Report Marietta Tournament of Champions. The event, which will be played from Sept. 25-27 at the Suwanee Sports Academy outside of Atlanta, Ga., will feature some of the nation’s finest travel squads.
Havoc City will be paced in Marietta by a quartet of talented prospects that includes the coach’s daughter, Taleah Washington (2018, 5-8, PG, rated at No. 175 in her class by ASGR), along with Anissa Rivera (2019, 6-0, WF, No. 10), Old Dominion commitment Tyasia Moore (2016, 5-11, SF, No. 206) and Syracuse commitment Kiara Smith (2016, 5-9, CG, No. 148).
“The recruiting for both Taleah and Anissa has really blown up this summer,” Coach Washington said. “Taleah is a very intelligent player. She is more of a true point guard who runs the offense, but she is also our No. 2 scorer. I think Anissa is one of the top players in the country in her class. She is a great defensive player and shot blocker because of her athletic ability, and she is also a very good shooter for her size.
“Tyasia is crazy athletic. The easiest way to explain it is that she plays like a boy. When she does a finger roll, she touches the rim. She is a great defender, and she is a rebounding machine. Kiara is a long athlete who has a wing span like a six footer. She is an explosive athlete who can get to the hole at will. Marietta will be her first tournament of the summer because she is coming back from an ACL injury, so we’re excited about this opportunity for Kiara.”
