A combo guard who can hurt you in so many ways with her offensive scoring ability. As a passer, she is the type of guard teammates love to play with as she sets them up for easy scoring opportunities with her assists. She is a two way guard with no fear defending on the ball with an aggressive energy and jumps into passing lanes well.
There was no JCPS Middle School season last year, which meant she didn’t get the opportunity to debut on the middle school level as a 6th Grader for fans to see her play.
As a rising 7th Grader with the start of Summer High School June Ball, she is playing up with Male High School on Junior Varsity and Varsity. This opportunity allows her to get an incredible experience of playing vs older players and putting her amazing talent on display for all to see.
She got her first taste of High School ball last Wednesday, June 2nd vs Bardstown High School.
In the Junior Varsity game she started at point guard and scored 7 points, 3 boards, 3 steals, 2 assists in a 49-45 win.
In the Varsity game she played 7 minutes off the bench and scored 3 points and 1 block in a 62-60 loss.
