As a daughter of a coach, I feel like I have grown up in the gym. Now that I am nearly half way through my high school career, I am focusing on continuing my academic and athletic career at the collegiate level. While I only have two years of experience playing at the high school level, I have learned so much more about the game. I have been able to increase my basketball I.Q. along with gaining a better perspective of what I need to strengthen and enhance to be able to compete with higher talent as a shooting guard at the next level.
Being able to compete in the WIAA's Hardwood Classic (Washington's state tournament) as a sophomore during the 2019-2020 season has given me a better idea of what women's basketball might look like at the next level. This experience undoubtedly has impacted me and will push me to become a better player and teammate. While this past season taught me a lot, I think not making the State tournament as a Freshman has motivated me even more. Both years I have learned leadership, teamwork, dedication, and how to both win and lose as a team.
Making sure I have the best fit academically, along with my athletics, is a priority. I believe that as I continue to push myself in both the classroom and on the court, when it comes time for me to graduate, I will be ready to make an impact at the next level.
