The New Jersey Sparks have quickly become a staple team during the summer exposure season. Coach Keith Gilchrist has built a solid program with teams that begin training players as young as ten years old. That development pays off as he has one of the elite travel teams in the nation this year. Gilchrist can point to a past star in Teana Muldrow of East Orange, N.J., as a player that helped put his program on the map. The 6-foot-1 forward signed with West Virginia last fall and is poised for a solid college career.
