Donnie Buss, Amanda Showers and Katie Wilson are like sisters.

They have known each other for years, and they have been best friends all through high school. Now it’s their senior year and together, they are will be leading forces on the basketball court.

Best friends and powerhouse basketball players Donnie Buss, Katie Wilson and Amanda Showers, from left, are poised to take the varsity team far into the post season. The three friends play volleyball and participate in track together. “There will be a lot of pressure on these three [girls] this season,” said Mark Showers, head coach of the Camp Verde High School girls basketball team.

“We know each other on the court,” Buss said. “If one gets frustrated, we know why.”

“It’s an amazing chemistry,” Wilson added. “We know our strengths and weaknesses and know what to do.”
