It used to be, on the area girls basketball scene, that ninth-graders that made a key varsity contribution — let alone started — were as rare as Kobe Bryant passing up an open jumper.
These days, however, there is a veritable proliferation of impact freshmen prevalent around the area.
Nowhere is the trend more apparent than at Perkiomen School, which start two freshmen — forward Kristen Burdo and point guard Stephanie Falcone.
The 5-foot-10 Burdo is averaging 14.5 points (sixth in the area) for the Tri-County League regular season champion Panthers. She’s hit the 20-point mark four times this season, including season-high 21-point efforts in wins over Barrack and Woodlynde.
