I am Mikaela Whalen. I am passionate, positive, persistent & coachable. Oh yeah, and there is basketball where I have speed, agility, defense (I set the school record for most steals in a single game, 10) and scoring ability (I finished the school season second in scoring [301 points] as a sophomore on a veteran varsity team that graduated 5 seniors).
I am passionate about the game of basketball. I have been playing some sort of organized basketball since I was in kindergarten playing in the rec league and began playing all year round by the third grade with a local team. I have been learning the game every step of the way and having fun doing it.
On my high school team, I have always been one of the shortest (5’ 8”) and quickest players. I have played most of the time at either point guard or shooting guard. On my current traveling team (Victory Ministries) I am one of the tallest and found myself playing all positions 1 thru 4 and sometimes even center. I am still learning that inside game.
Away from basketball I keep busy and in shape by playing volleyball in the fall and soccer in the spring. I am on the varsity team on both. I finished my sophomore year in soccer by making the All Conference, All District & All Region teams. I love the atmosphere of team sports and the relationships that I have with all my teammates.
Am I perfect? No. Do I still need work? Yes. I learn every day. I need a great school and a great coach to guide me and teach me along my journey. Are you that school, that coach?
