Arizona Got Game

11/1/2008

Who's got game? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here are the athletes we recognized in November:

SAM SEEGER

SALPOINTE CATHOLIC -- FOOTBALL

The kicker is often invisible until the game is on the line. Some
players love that pressure, and Seeger is one of them. When
he got the opportunity to put the game on his cleat, the
senior didn't waste the chance. Against Gilbert, with
the game knotted at 17 in the final minute,
the Lancers drove deep into the Tigers'
territory, and Seeger booted a 20-
yarder as time expired to give
his team the win on
Sept. 12.

MORGAN WOHLTMAN
HIGHLAND -- GIRLS' BASKETBALL

The road to the Class 5A, Division I state
championship will run through Highland this
season. The defending champion Hawks will
have a say in who wins the title, and
Wohltman is a big reason why. The senior led
the way last year, averaging 14 points and
five rebounds per game and playing some of
the state's best defense. She earned All-
Arizona honors from The Arizona
Republic last season for her play.

KATIE ZISSIS
MARCOS DE NIZA -- GIRLS' SWIMMING

It may have been just the first meet of the season, but Zissis appeared
to immediately be in form for the 5A-II state tournament. The junior
earned wins in the 200 free and 100 fly in a meet against Basha on Sept.
4, then followed the performance with wins in the 200 IM and the 500
free against Yuma a week later. Last year, at the 5A-II state meet,
Zissis placed in entirely different events — she was third in the 100 free
and sixth in the 100 breast.
