The 18-year-old North Wildwood resident was one of the 18 girls chosen from New Jersey, including fellow South Jersey nominee and Cherokee star Alexa Therien.

More than 700 boys and girls were nominated for the game, which will not take place this season for the second consecutive year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Final rosters will be announced later this month and will consist of 24 girls and 24 boys. Last season, Mainland Regional graduate and University of Oregon freshman standout Kylee Watson was a McDonald’s All-American.

Papazoglou is averaging 24.8 points per game, leading the Crusaders to a 7-1 start. She also averages 11.9 rebounds.

Papazoglou has 1,710 career points. She will play for University of Pennsylvania next season.
