Woodlan was another one of the schools lucky enough to have very good freshman on their roster last season and Dakotah Krohn has only expanded her game after a strong summer. Now, heading into her sophomore season, Krohn is the heir apparent to leading the Warriors.
As a sophomore in 2019-2020, she will stay as a strong complimentary piece, but one who’s value is hard to quantify. Krohn averaged 6.3 points and two steals per game as a freshman, but her breakout moments were critical. One of those came against Heritage in December in a two point win where Krohn had seven points, but oozed confidence against a physical Patriot squad. That is the thing that makes Krohn so valuable as a sophomore: that she plays beyond her years.
On the court, Krohn shows confidence and didn’t seem to have ‘deer in the headlights’ moments like many freshmen do on the varsity level. She scored in double digits in four of the final 6 games of her first season, helping them beat Adams Central and South Adams in that span. In those games, she showed her poise, hitting 50 percent or better from the field three times. Krohn left herself in a great spot to build on and as she finds better consistency, she is going to be a major force in an interesting ACAC race.
“Dakotah Krohn gained great varsity experience last year as a freshman,” says Woodlan coach Gary Cobb. “[She] is developing nicely into a player who is very tough to defend. Also a great defender.”
