Jennifer Wirth, Forward, Seton Catholic: Jennifer isn’t alone, not only among Seton freshmen but among Wirth freshmen. Twin sister, LeeAnne, has also seen playing time this season as she continues her return from a significant injury in eighth grade. The Wirth sisters aren’t alone, either, as two elite, record-setting Wirths came through Seton in the past decade (Theresa and Christina). Jennifer and LeeAnne came to their games as elementary school kids, and then 11-, 12- and 13-year-old kids, and they didn’t just run around the school or hide in the bleachers. Each of the older sisters started as freshmen, so the pattern continues. So, too, might the pattern of greatness those older sisters built. “We’d come to the games to watch our sisters and we paid attention,” Jennifer said. “I think it definitely helped a lot having siblings who’ve been part of this.” Still, summer and early fall weren’t always a smooth transition for the Wirth sisters as they tried to learn the varsity basketball expectations while fitting in with teammates, and while the older Wirths occasionally chimed in about expectations and suggestions for success. Sometimes the best resource was each other. “It was hard getting used to this especially in summer and early in fall, but we worked hard for these spots. They said it’s hard but it’ll be worth it.”
