Notre Dame women’s basketball recruit Maddy Westbeld will represent the Irish in the McDonald’s All-American Game.

Westbeld, a 6-foot-2 forward from Kettering (Ohio) Fairmont, received one of 24 roster spots announced Thursday. The annual all-star game will be played April 1 in Houston and televised on ESPN2 at 5 p.m. EST.

Westbeld, currently averaging 20 points and 11.4 rebounds per game in her senior season, signed with Notre Dame in November as part of a five-woman 2020 recruiting class.

In the latest espnW HoopGurlz Top 100, Westbeld ranks as the top Irish signee at No. 23 overall ahead of guard Allison Campbell (25), forward Natalija Marshall (32), guard Alasia Hayes (44) and unranked forward Amirah Abdur-Rahim.

Notre Dame’s current roster includes four former McDonald’s All Americans: Destinee Walker (2015), Katlyn Gilbert (2018), Samantha Brunelle (2019) and Anaya Peoples (2019). Westbeld’s older sister, Kathryn, played in the 2014 McDonald’s All-American Game before a four-year career with the Irish.

Maddy Westbeld becomes Notre Dame's 20th McDonald's All-American since the event started including women in 2002.
