On Thursday, Chartiers Valley’s Aislin Malcom earned yet another honor, this time being a nomination for the McDonald’s All-American game.
Malcolm, a Pitt commit, was one of 18 Pennsylvania athletes nominated for the East Region squad.
As of Jan. 7, Malcolm held the No. 1 spot in the state of Pennsylvania in three pointers made, with 44, according to MaxPreps. So far, through 11 games played, the shooting guard is averaging over 19 points per game for her Chartiers Valley squad.
“I’ve been going to Pitt camp, honestly, since like fourth grade, so, I mean, I’ve just always been attracted to that school and everything,” Malcolm told Pittsburgh Sports Now after her commitment. “It was between Pitt, Penn State, Northwestern and then Boston College. I always knew it was going to be Pitt in the end.”
While this nomination does not mean that she has made the team yet, it is certainly a big-time honor for the senior.
