It was a magical season for the Rolling Meadows girls basketball team. But that wasn't an illusion fans were seeing when junior Jackie Kemph, like a blur, would sneak past defenders and swish a layup for one of her team-high 642 points this season. "What separates Jackie from any boy or girl I've seen is her body control," said Meadows coach Ryan Kirkorsky. "And her ability to finish." Kemph plays as hard as anyone — and most coaches will tell you, harder. That's one of the many reasons she has been selected honorary captain of the Daily Herald's all-area girls basketball team for the Northwest suburbs.
