The Page sisters led Wamego High School (Wamego, KS), coached by their father Jim Page, to the Kansas Class 4A state title last year. Kaylee Page led the way with 22 points and Lanie Page added 20 points in Wamego’s 60-53 victory over McPherson in the state final.
Kaylee, 17, is a 6-2 guard and the No. 42 prospect in the class of 2014 according to ESPNHoopGurlz while Lanie, 15, is also a 6-2 guard and the No. 19 prospect in the class of 2015.
Kaylee is fundamentally strong and can really shoot the ball from beyond the arc. She is also a very good rebounder and solid shot blocker. In addition, she has a very strong work ethic and she practices so hard she can barely walk the next day though it is in the weight room is where she really shines.
"She's not afraid to grab that bar, and that sets her apart from other girl athletes," Wamego football coach Dale Burkholder said. "She's this tall, skinny girl, and she's in there doing power cleans like a guy. When she lifts, people stop and watch her."
Kaylee has committed to play basketball at the University of Nebraska. She was the Kansas-Sports.com Player of the Year last season, as she averaged 20.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.3 blocks, 3.1 assists, 1.8 steals a game.
Lanie, like her sister, is a tough and versatile perimeter player. She possesses excellent ball-handling skills. She is very versatile and is a good three-point shooter. She also is a solid defender and rebounder.
Lanie, who has yet to commit to a college, was the Kansas-Sports Sophomore of the Year and made the 10-player all-state first team. She averaged 16.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 2.9 assists and 3.4 steals a game. Lanie has offers from Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Oklahoma State.
Both girls are excellent students. Lanie, who skipped the eighth grade, is interested in studying physical therapy or criminology in college and Kaylee is currently carrying a 4.09 GPA.
