I am extremely excited to once again be playing this year for the highly-competitive Wolverinas!  While most of my life has consisted of years of playing soccer, volleyball and soccer, I have come to the realization that basketball is the sport that I want to make the focus of my athletic future.  My passion for this wonderful game really took flight when I was fortunate to make two free throws with seconds left to tie a 6th grade feeder game, as a 4th grader!

In addition to playing for the Wolverinas, I just completed my third season playing on the varsity for Grayslake North High School.  Playing with many of my childhood friends, we had a great season and I was able to break many of Grayslake North’s All-Time records for girls basketball. Along with all of my accomplishments listed below, I am the most pleased about the improvement of my all-around game this season. Not only am I driven on the court, I am also driven in the classroom. While taking entirely AP and honors courses, I have been able to maintain a 4.52/4 GPA which ranks in the 2% of my class.

I am a very competitive individual who is always working to improve my game both physically and mentally. My desire to continuously improve motivates me to put in hard work in the gym as well as with my speed/strength trainer and shooting/skill coach.  This effort has given me confidence to be able any of the 5 positions on the court.  I look forward to this next year and know my hard work will help me achieve my dream of playing at the collegiate level!
