Athlete. One of the best girl basketball players in high school history, this 1979 graduate of Platteview High School in Springfield, Sarpy County, was a favorite with fans from the time she first stepped on to any athletic arena for her varsity team. She was named all-state in both volleyball and basketball, and she won the Class B high jump in 1977. Despite all this versatility, she was a basketball player, a real star in this sport. Her statistics: 1,492 career points, a single season record of 533, and a point average of more than 22 a game in her last two years of high school. Basketball was her sport, for sure. She played four years at the University of Nebraska.
