Girls Athlete of the Week: Jordan Gamradt, Sauk Centre

By

* Year in school/sport: Senior guard on the girls basketball team.

* Highlights: Gamradt, a defensive specialist, had nine points and played outstanding defense in Sauk Centre’s 60-45 win over New London-Spicer in the Section 6-2A championship game Friday at St. Cloud State.

* What has competing in athletics taught you? “It’s taught me a lot of stuff. A lot of my friends are on the team, so it’s taught me how to build good relationships with people. It’s taught me to compete positively and it’s helped me with team goals and how to use teamwork to get things accomplished.”

* What’s your most memorable high school moment? “They’re all pretty good … I’d probably have to say this year’s volleyball state tournament of this year’s basketball tournament because it’s my senior year.”

* What’s your pre-game routine? “Basically, it’s listening to music in the locker room. I’m in charge of music, so I make sure it’s a wide variety. We usually break out in dance, although sometimes it’s just me dancing. They we pray and do a few cheers and by then, It’s Mr. Bergman (head coach Scott) yelling at us that it’s time to go.”

* What’s your most embarrassing high school moment? “Mr. Bergman stopped practice to announce that I miss a lot of layups.”

* Favorite food: Chicken alfredo.

* Favorite movie: Grease.

* Favorite TV show: The Mentalist.

* What are your post-high-school plans? “I hope to be attending Concordia-Moorhead and I’m looking for a career. I guess I am undecided.” She doesn’t plan to play sports.

* What’s next? The Mainstreeters (27-2) play Minneapolis Washburn (22-7) in the state Class 2A quarterfinals at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Williams Arena in Minneapolis.

Gamradt said she doesn’t know much about the Millers.

“Not much,” she said. “I do know they have a really tall girl (6-foot-3 Chase Coley) who is leading the state in rebounding and blocked shots.

“It’ll be interesting.”
