Doughty, George make Gold Crown All Star Team

The Summit Middle School eighth-grade girls basketball team recently acquired another feather for its cap, as Megan Doughty and Emily George were named to the Gold Crown Foundation All Star Team.

The Tigers finished the season 22-4, making it to the second round of the playoffs.

Doughty played point guard for Summit and led the team in 3-point percentage, free-throw percentage and steals. George, a forward, was recognized for her defensive prowess.

The pair were two of eight players chosen for the honor out of about 400 girls in the Gold Crown’s Silver Division. They will play in an All Star game at the Pepsi Center on April 12 before the Denver Nuggets game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

George and Doughty were voted onto the All Star Team by Gold Crown League coaches.
