OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Baylee Egan is not your normal high school basketball player. First, she can play any position on the floor and do it well. Second, averaging close to 12 rebounds per game last year she was second in the state in Class A, while scoring double digits. She averaged a double-double and that was her sophomore season. Third, she’s a two-time captain now as a junior at Bellevue East thanks to a unanimous vote by her teammates.

If all goes expected next year as a senior Egan will become a three-time captain, very rare.

Baylee and the team are working hard to restore the success of the Bellevue East girls basketball program. She also committed to play college basketball at Nebraska Kearney in late November, where Egan will be joining a couple of her summer teammates with the Lopers.
