Maple Grove Prep Elite 2012: Girls Rule
Girls rule this year’s Prep Elite section and each one of these five young ladies is lively, engaging, smart and interesting. From the basketball court to the stage, from the concert hall to the debate competition, these young ladies representing Maple Grove High School, Osseo High School and Providence Academy certainly bring something special to everything they do.
Maple Grove Senior High
In the short term, athlete and honor student Angie Davison has her future pretty well planned out and it includes reuniting with her role model on the basketball court. Next year, Davison, a point guard, will be joining her sister Stephanie, a former Maple Grove Magazine Prep Elite, at the University of Northern Iowa, a Division 1 school.
“It’s a dream come true for me that I’ll get to have another chance to play with her,” says Angie Davison. “She has been my role model since I started playing sports.”
For now, Davison wants to get the girls basketball team to the state tournament. (She is also a captain of the Maple Grove girls soccer team). Don’t doubt that this girl thrives on competition. According to mom Cori (who also coaches her daughter’s Minnesota Suns AAU basketball team) Angie said her first words while they were “racing” up the stairs—with Angie crawling.
“She said, ‘Nah, nah, me win’,” says Cori with a laugh. “Right then, I knew we were in trouble.”
When asked about her most memorable high school moment, Davison’s competitive nature flares again as she recalls “beating Osseo two years ago in the section championship, and then beating them again this year in our house during “Pink Out” night.”
One of Davison’s favorite quotations is about the spirit and perseverance needed to be a champion: “Attitude is contagious. How you respond to adversity is more important than how you respond to success.”
Favorite subject: Math (she’d like to be an elementary school teacher with an emphasis on math someday)
Three words she’d use to describe herself: Competitive, outgoing and positive
Pre-game ritual: “Our whole team paints one nail and puts on temporary tattoos,” says Davison. “I personally eat a Snickers bar before every game.”
