Readers of the WHB know about this player.

But it's cool when others pay attention: Leedham dominates Division II

Former Cheshire Academy standout Johannah Leedham enters her senior year at Franklin Pierce College having already won a National Player of the Year honor as a sophomore and led her team to the national championship game as a junior.The 5-foot-11 swingman from Ellesmere Port, England is a prolific scorer who entered this season with 2,135 points, 638 rebounds, 323 assists and 316 steals.

“She has been a dominant player at this level,” Franklin Pierce coach Steve Hancock said. “I certainly think her desire to win and her work habits are impeccable. She just has this intangible intensity that every single drill we do in practice is like the national championship to her.”
