The Indy 5’7″ freshman point and shooting guard during three scrimmages held at Providence Day School’s annual Super Scrimmage showed she is going to be a force on this seasons current edition of the Lady Patriots 2021-2022 basketball team. The class of 2025 future graduate with plenty of time for growth and development has clearly shown her athleticism, shooting ability, and ball handling skills, with a lot of upside potential.
During the three games played which were 16:00 running minute half’s with the exception of the final two minutes she tallied 34 points for an average of 11.3 points per game. Kitchen also can score from the 3-point range and is willing to drive to the basket. She distributed the ball with good accurate passing and gained a number of assists making a solid contribution.
Certainly there needs to be some fine tuning and more court awareness which will come with additional varsity game experience. However, for Independence Coach Lauren Galvani there is potentially a huge upside. Galvani played this same position in high school and at college, she could shoot the 3-pointer, and drive the lane, therefore, she is the perfect mentor at this level to improve and develop Kitchen’s skills and the teams performance.
Sophomore Kaylee Carson who is a similar style player with quickness and drives to the hoop more often makes this new young backcourt combination very interesting to watch. Carson contributed 23 points in the three scrimmage games played and was selected as the runner up.
The Mint Hill Times sports writers would like to congratulate Kamryn Kitchen for being selected this weeks Player Of The Week.
