Varsity Basketball Player

Stats this season: Jai averaged 14.2 points per game.

From Head Coach Emily Thews-Baldridge: "Jai is a great student-athlete. She understands the importance of hard work and gives it her all every day in practice and in games. As our point guard, she is the leader on offense and is always looking to get her teammates involved. Her intensity and dedication are admirable and have served her well on and off the court."

In Jai's words: "I've been drawn to basketball ever since the third grade when I started to play against the boys on the blacktop. I feel like I'm a natural born leader, and I enjoy the ability to put that to work as I strategize on the court with my teammates. I'm excited to share that next year. I plan to play basketball at the next level when I start at Bowdoin College in Maine. Bowdoin is a special move for me because it's actually in the same conference as my older sister's school -- she's a sophomore at Amherst. We're excited to play against each other!"
