  • With her nomination to the 2013 McDonald's All American® Games, Brooke Costley of Mexico High School was recently recognized as one of the top prep standouts in the nation.
    The Mexico Lady Bulldogs 5-foot-10-inch guard is one of 814 prep seniors who have been nominated to play in the 2013 McDonald's All American Games. This year's list boasts players from 39 states and the District of Columbia who have been selected by high school coaches, athletic directors, principals and members of the McDonald's All American Games Selection Committee.
    "As a point guard, Brooke knows how to create for her teammates and has a great range for her three point line. She has been recruited by a lot of schools and will play for a Division II school. She is a great student athlete," said MHS Coach Ed Costley.
    Costley averages 14 points-per-game and leads the Bulldogs in multiple school records. She is the daughter of the team's coach, Ed Costley and Kim Costley.
    The 12th Annual Girls Game will tip-off at 6 p.m. April 3 inside the famed United Center in Chicago, Ill., and will broadcast live on ESPN. The 36th Annual Boys Game will follow the girls game and will broadcast on ESPNU.
    Net proceeds from the games will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). The games have raised more than $10 million for RMHC since its inception in 1978.
