Spencer, a 5-foot-11-inch senior, was All State ’15; All Metro MVP for ’14 and ’15; All-Metro ’13,’14, and ’15; and All-District ’12,’13, ’14 and ’15. As a junior, she averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds per game, leading Cabrini to a Class 4A semifinals appearance. Her career point total at Cabrini was 1,700 with her senior season remaining. “Rakell is a dynamic player who is going to be fun to watch in college,” Cabrini coach Nancy Walsh said. “After watching her grow and mature at Cabrini, I have all the faith in the world that she will take advantage of every opportunity that comes her way. Though I am very proud to be her basketball coach, her work ethic in the classroom has pleased me the most.”
