Two Northern California girls, one from Stockton and the other from Folsom, have made the prestigious McDonald’s High School All-American Basketball Team.

Aquira DeCosta from St. Mary’s High School in Stockton along with McKenzie Forbes from Folsom will wear the McDonald’s All-American jerseys. The players were chosen from 700 nominees nationwide.

The 6-foot-2 DeCosta is considered the top wing player in the country and was rated the No. 4 recruit for the Class of 2018. 

She will be playing at Baylor, and joining her on the West team are three other players going to Baylor, the most for any college. 

“It’s really good and I’m glad that they’re going to be on the same team as me took, so I get the experience playing with them before we actually head out to Baylor," DeCosta said. "So being able to experience a McDonald’s All-American with them makes it a lot better.” 

Forbes, who has committed to Cal, and DeCosta will take to the court on March 28 for the tipoff in Atlanta’s Philips Arena.
