2014-15:  Enters her final year in the blue and gold as one of the club’s “glue”players, holding things together at both ends of the court with solid, consistent play…will compete for starting time on the wing and will definitely be in the regular rotation…arguably, the club’s top transition player, she should convert a lot of fast-break opportunities…causes havoc defensively, especially in passing lanes…work on her accuracy from behind the arc makes her game more complete and keeps defenses honest…likes to attack the basket, too…her tempo-changing play could be instrumental in the outcomes of games…an excellent decision-maker. 

2013-14:  One of the club’s most important role players, she put together another selfless campaign, posting career-highs in virtually every category…started the first eight games of the season, producing her top two scoring efforts in that span…tallied 13 points vs. third-ranked Freed Hardeman of Tennessee on 11/22/13 and followed that up a day later with a dozen more in a win over No. 16 Carroll of Montana…had nine games with four or more rebounds, highlighted by a season-high six vs. Northwest Christian (OR) on 11/8/13…handed out a season-best four assists on four occasions…had a season-high four steals vs. Cal Tech on 11/16/13...excelled in the classroom, too, earning GSAC and NAIA scholar-athlete honors.

2012-13:  Becoming more comfortable with her niche in the backcourt and developing into more of an offensive threat, the second-year player upped her numbers in virtually every category…scored in double figures three times, highlighted by a career-high 16 points vs. Arizona Christian on 1/12/13…three weeks later against the same ACU squad, she tossed in 13 more points and pulled down a career-best five rebounds…finished tied for third on the team in steals, collecting six thefts against Great Falls (MT) on 12/17/12.

2011-12:  Valuable reserve averaged nearly 14 minutes per game primarily as a defensive specialist but contributed better than expected on the offensive end…tallied eight points against Simpson in her collegiate debut on 11/4/12…scored a season-high nine points, highlighted by a 6-6 performance from the line vs. Azusa Pacific on 1/24/12…yanked down three rebounds on four occasions…had a season-best three steals vs. La Sierra on 11/5/11.

Lovejoy HS: Four-year starter for the Leopards and Coach Kelly Connor…led the squad to a second-place finish at the 3A state tournament in her senior year when she averaged 15.3ppg, hitting 74% of her shots from the field, and 47% from behind the arc…named to the all-tournament team, the 3A all-state squad, the 3A All-Region II team, and was a first-team all-district choice…in her junior year, when she averaged 10.5ppg and 3.7 rpg, she was instrumental in helping the Leopards reach the postseason for the first time in school history…holds school, single-game records for points (27) and three-pointers (6).
