My name is Korin Baker. I am a junior in high school. My hometown is Curlew, WA. We are a small town in Ferry County about 15 miles from the border with British Columbia, CA.
I am a dedicated student. I’ve been driven to maintain a 4.0 GPA in junior high and high school, while taking the most challenging classes possible. I see myself majoring in the fields of biology/sports medicine. I’m hoping to find a university where I can continue to grow and thrive as as a student and as an athlete.
As an athlete, I believe that conditioning is the key to performance. I love staying in shape all year around. I am a four sport athlete, earning varsity letters in volleyball, basketball and softball. My junior year I gave cross-country a try and earned a letter in that sport as well. Basketball, however, is my primary sport. I take pride in my defensive presence, and I’m a determined ball handler, keeping a constant eye out for open teammates. On the offensive end, I averaged 23 points and 14 rebounds this year and was honored to receive the District 7, NE 1B MVP award.
At my high school I am a member of NHS and have been ASB Treasurer for the past two years.
I live with my parents and three siblings on a farm where we raise cattle. It has been a great place to grow up, but I’m looking forward to the next phase in my life—attending university and continuing to play basketball.
