The Aaliyah Ragulen file

  • Name: Aaliyah Ragulen
  • School: Park Center
  • Class: Senior
  • Coach comment: "Aaliyah has the ability to drive the lane, dish and shoot the mid range jumper or trey accurately which makes her a tough assignment for opponents. As a senior, team captain and NWSC all-conference player she is a leader on and off the court. Ragulen is a player that makes her teammates better in practices and games which will be key to our success down the stretch." — Park Center coach Barb Metcalf
