ITraining with former NBA player Rory White on a weekly basis.

ph: 701-306-2376

I started the 2016-2017 season playing JV. On JV I started 19 of 19 games. A third of the way through the season I began playing both JV and Varsity, playing 3 quarters of each. I began with an average of 3 minutes playing time when I first joined Varsity and finished the season with an average of 12 minutes per game. On JV for the 3 quarters I averaged 20 minutes of playing time per game.

For the 2017-2018 season, I became a varsity starter and started all games except senior night, as I was the only starter that was not a senior. I played about 22-24 minutes per game, more when games were close, less when we had a large lead.

For the 2018-2019 season, I started all 22 games of the season playing a majority of the game. I averaged 28 minutes per game. I was our lead scorer, rebounder, and three point shooter for the 2018-2019 season.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

Sports have always been a passion of mine. I play basketball and I throw in track, but basketball is my main sport. If possible I am looking to do both in college. Playing sports in college is very appealing to me because I could not imagine being done doing the thing I love the most after high school is over. I am very dedicated, and I am looking forward to playing with other athletes who have the same passion for sports as I do.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

My junior basketball season I was put into a big leadership role. I was choose by my coach as one of the team captains. There were many more responsibilities besides doing captain duties before games. All the younger girls on the team look up to me and I had to be a good role model while helping them approve in the way they play the game of basketball. Another example would be in the 2019 track season when I was the oldest thrower on the team. We do not have team captains for our track team, but there were no senior female throwers this past year. I not only helped the underclassman learn how to throw, but I also had to encourage them to get better.

An example of when I was off of the field that I showed leadership would be within my school's FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) chapter. I was not the chapter president my junior year, but when things needed to get done, I took initiative to get the work done. Nobody wanted to write a 16 page report for state, so I decided to and I actually placed fifth out of 50 reports. Next year I will be the chapter president. I also take many leadership roles in the classroom and for our schools student council team.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

As a student athlete you must ALWAYS put your school work before any athletic activities. A student athlete must put 100% of their focus on their school work before they shift their focus to the sport or sports that they play. Student athletes must also manage their time well. If they don't they will find themselves in a cram and possibly failing at school and sports.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

Community service is something that is very important in my life. Without it, our communities would not be what they are today. I am involved in community service in many ways. My favorite example would be when I volunteer my time to help with Special Olympics in Grand Forks, ND. It was very enjoyable and a great way to spend my time volunteering. Other examples would include: working local blood drives, working school concessions, spring clean up in ditches, and many more. In the last two years, I have got 150 hours of community service.
