2016-2017Finished up a great career…saved the best season for last…appeared in all but two games on the year, providing help inside…started two games…twice tallied seven points…came up big in the ’Cats’ win over Virginia Wesleyan…scored six points in the narrow win…also pulled down five rebounds against EMU…will be missed by the team and the staff.

2015-2016: Backup post saw action in 19 games during her junior season…provided the staff and the team a valuable option off the bench, especially against bigger teams…made some nice moves down low throughout the year…pulled down five rebounds against Gallaudet…looking to make a major impact in her final season on Rivermont Avenue.

2014-2015: Played in 15 games during her second season on Rivermont Ave…had a career-high seven points against Mary Baldwin College…also played a season-high 19 minutes in the game, while grabbing a career-high eight rebounds…with losses due to graduation in the front court, will look to take on a larger role in her third year.

2013-14Played in 14 games as a reserve in her first year at Randolph...brought down four rebounds and made one assist in the first game of the season...grabbed four boards again in the fourth game of the season, handed out one assist, sunk one shot from the floor in that contest...is sure to have more opportunities to contribute and improve in future seasons.

Before Randolph: Four-year letter-winner and two year captain and starter for the Blue Demons...first-team all-district and second-team all-region.

Personal: Parents: Michael Thornton and Tammy Webb...siblings Britanny and Ryken...came to Randolph for the campus size and academics...minoring in Gender Studies.
