Rob Ruhstorfer, the director of the Mystics program based in Flint, MI, has supreme confidence in his teams, and he is excited about what the next month might bring.
“We feel good about the way the year is going. We have 20 total teams in our program, and we have two top teams in the rising junior class,” noted Ruhstorfer, who runs the Mystic out of his Hill Road Sports Complex facility in Flint. “I really feel like one of those team is among the top teams in the country at that age, and the other team is also very good.”
The Mystics will get a serious test when they travel to the 2015 Summer Derby Classic, which will be played in Louisville, KY on July 23-24. The tournament, which will include many of the top travel programs in the country, will be played at the Mid America Sports Center.
The athletes getting the most attention from college recruiters this spring were Courtney McInerney (2017, 6-1, F), Sadie Dewildt (2017, 5-6, PG), Alex VanSumeren (2017, 5-7, SG) and Emma Ebo (2017, 5-11, F).
“Courtney is a very good shooter all the way out beyond the three-point line,” Ruhstorfer said. “She is also an excellent defender who can guard anyone, one through five. I think she will be a three in college, and she is getting a ton of Division I interest.
“Sadie is a scoring point guard who, in my opinion, is the best three-point shooter in the state. She can shoot off the dribble, step back … just about any type of shot. She is just a very crafty player who knows who to put the basketball in the basket.
“Alex has unbelievable shooting range. She steps inside her range when she walks into the gym, and that talent has caused a lot of recruiting interest. Emma is a strong, physical player. She mid-range jumper is very effective, and she can defend all over the court.”
