Second-best athlete in the family: Right now, my older sister (Brooke). She played volleyball in high school and basketball in middle school.

Season highlight: Winning the district tournament. There were people that said we would be fourth in the district but we wound up winning the regular season and the district too.

Dream car: Red for sure and a Maserati

Favorite musician: Chris Brown

Hidden talent: I can play the piano and drums.

Favorite teachers: Probably at Blackman, Mrs. (Courtney) Gregory and Mrs. (Kim) Baumann. They’re teachers, but they’re also my friends. I can talk to them about anything.

Second-favorite sport: Track. I feel like if I didn’t play basketball, I would run the 100 and 200 (meters) and probably relays.

People confuse me with: I can’t get away from Moriah Jefferson. She’s taller than I am.

Biggest deal on my phone: Coach (Geno) Auriemma.


COACH OF THE YEAR: Scott Allen, Paul VI (Fairfax, Va.)
