Hi my name is Lillie Ross and I just finished my Junior at Hill City High School in Hill City SD. I am a 3-sport athlete…I have been on the Varsity Cross County Team since 7th grade! My 7th and 8th grade year we were runner up and my freshman year we won the state championship! I have been on the Varsity Basketball team since 8th grade, in 8th grade we made it to the state tournament, but due to Covid that tournament was canceled! My 9th grade year we made it to the SoDak 16 but lost by 2 to make it to the state tournament! Last year we made it to the second round of regions and lost to ST Thomas More, I started varsity both my sophomore and junior year along with starting this year I was also the team captain and lead scorer. I was honorable mention all-conference in the Black Hills Conference which is very competitive. I feel like this year was a rebuilding year for our team. I run 400, 800, 4x8, 4x4, and the medley in track! Along with running I started high jumping. In addition to school sports, I play AAU basketball in the summer, the last 3 summers I have played for SD North Star/Ambush! I have been playing basketball since I was 5 and competitively since I was in 3rd grade! In my spare time I help coach/teach youth basketball, attend young life, and maintain at least a 3.4 in school! This year I was also inducted into the National Honor Society.
