2014-15:  Regarded as one of the elite long-distance shooters in the country, she could have a prolific junior season as one of the club’s primary scoring threats…her ability to stretch defenses will benefit the team’s inside game…not a one-dimensional player, she can put it on the floor and create her own shot…runs the floor with ease, creating more scoring opportunities…at the other end of the court, her length and physical play enables her to defend smaller and taller opponents alike…plays passing lanes extremely well.

2013-14:  Only a late-season injury, forcing her to miss a month of play, kept her from having the greatest long-distance season in program history…finished tied for second on the team in three-pointers and led the GSAC in three-point field goal percentage…equaled a career-best with five three-pointers against Bethesda on 12/12/13 and La Sierra on 1/9/14…recorded 10 double-figure outings, including a career-tying 15 points on four occasions…dished out a season-high four assists twice and had a trio of three-steal games.

2012-13:  Impressing in preseason camp, the freshman guard earned a spot in the regular rotation, playing in all but two of the squad’s games and averaging 11 minutes per outing…tallied in double figures three times, highlighted by a season-best 15-point performance vs. UC Merced on 12/29/12…scored all of her points in that game on a season-high five three-pointers…used four more treys to tally 12 points vs. New Hope Christian on 2/7/13…dealt out a season-best four assists vs. Hope International on 2/23/13 and had three steals on three occasions.

West Torrance HS:  A three-year varsity performer for the Warriors, she started her last two prep seasons…averaged 13.1ppg during her senior year (2011-12), leading the Warriors to a 26-7 record, the Bay League championship, the semi-final round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AAA playoffs, and a second-round finish in the state tournament…she was named league Co-MVP, made the Daily Breeze All-Area second team, and was a first-team All-CIF Southern Section Division 3AAA selection…as a junior, she was part of a Warrior team that went 20-11 and lost in the second round of the 3AAA playoffs.
