Season highlights: Despite large changes from a title-winning team in 2022, coach Josh Ulitzky’s Grandview girls basketball team finished 18-9 and won the Class 6A state championship with a very new class. While the Wolves were built around the inside play of sophomore post player Sienna Betts, they needed an outside threat offensively and McClain served as that in her one and only season as a varsity regular. She knocked down a team-high 32 3-pointers and scored in double figures seven times, including a season-high 18 points in a loss to Cherry Creek in Centennial League play. McClain also played a role in a defense that allowed just 42 points per game. She earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
McClain vs. Aurora teams: vs. Regis Jesuit (7 points, 5 assists); vs. Overland (11 points, 3 assists); vs. Cherokee Trail (9 points); vs. Eaglecrest (15 points, 2 assists); vs. Smoky Hill (11 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals)
