Sedona Red Rock High School’s girls basketball team starts two players this year who scrape the ceiling of six feet tall.

Senior Gabrielle Simon demonstrates her full 6-foot-plus wingspan, shooting a jumper in practice at Sedona Red Rock High School on Tuesday, Dec. 31. The post player on the girls basketball team also finished fourth in the state last year in discus.One is a newcomer, freshman Sophia Perry, who Head Coach Jackie Strickling sends out to jump center at the beginnings of games.

The taller of the two, track thrower Gabby Simon, is one of only three seniors on the Scorpions girls basketball team this year and its second-leading scorer.

“I’m 5-10 or 5-11,” Simon said. “Sometimes coach does bump me up to 6 feet.”

“Girls always want to be shorter than they really are,” Strickling interjected. “I list her as 6 feet [tall] in all of the games. Doesn’t she look 6 feet?”
