CN Senior Ashlyn Watkins Wins McDonald’s All-American Dunk Contest

Ashlyn Watkins can add another honor to her high school career — slam dunk champion. The Cardinal Newman senior won the McDonald’s All-American Slam Dunk contest on Monday in Chicago. She is the third woman to win the contest. Former Tennessee great Candace Parker won it in 2004, while Fran Belibi — now at Stanford — competed and won in 2019. “It feels amazing,” Watkins said on ESPN interview after the contest.
