Season highlights: In the second season with Jordan Kasemodel as head coach, the Raiders took another step forward — by winning 17 games and making it to the Class 6 Great 8 — with a nucleus of underclassmen that includes Watts, who was the most prolific 3-point shooter on one of the top perimeter shooting teams in 6A. Watts made two more triples than her next closest teammates and it helped her add nearly a point to her scoring average from the previous season, as she score 20 or more points five times (with a high of 29 coming against Heritage in a game in which she made five 3-pointers). The All-Continental League first team selection doubled her assist total (on the strength of 11 games with five or more assists) and also averaged nearly two steals per game. Watts earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the second time, but did not get to play last year when the game was canceled.
Watts vs. Aurora teams: vs. Cherokee Trail (8 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists); vs. Grandview (5 assists); vs. Cherokee Trail (17 points, 2 assists)
