: : Rare in the girls HS Hoops game to see holdbacks, more common I've noticed that parents allow their younger aged kids to play up so to speak. For example, know plenty of varsity starters that graduate at 17 and don't even turn 18 until the last 4 months of that graduation year. Had they not started school early or started school 2 YEARS LATER (aka holdback 1 year)!!! Peeps would be like she's a super soph.
: Was Brooke Demetre held back?
There are several high profile players, that will be 19-20 years old when they graduate, that were held back. However itís not entirely clear if they were held back for basketball purposes or if there was possiblebly an academic need. Furthermore it usually happens at the elementary level, rarely on the girls side during middle school.
