U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill., was on hand Friday at Rock Island High School with sophomore Brea Beal to present a Congressional Record statement to Beal, recognizing her for being named Ms. Basketball of Illinois 2017.

Beal is the first ever Quad-City athlete to be named Ms. Basketball and is only the third high school sophomore in history to be given that honor.

Scoring more than 1,200 points in so far in her career, Beal is ranked as one of the top sophomore prospects in the nation and is on pace to break almost every Western Big 6 Conference record by the time she graduates.
