KIERSTEN HAINES

Sutherlin senior

Sport: Basketball.

Position: Guard.

Age: 17.

Other hobbies/interests: Anything to do with outdoors — snowboarding, swimming, boating.

GPA: 3.9.

College Plans: Will play basketball at Umpqua Community College; transfer to a four-year college.

Favorite Athlete: LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers forward; Derrick Rose, Detroit Pistons guard (“because we both have knee problems”).

Performance: Had a career-high 23 points with six 3-pointers in a 67-37 win over No. 7 Pleasant Hill. Set school single-game records with 40 points and 11 3-pointers in a 78-29 win over St. Mary’s.

Quotable: “I could have never even thought of performing that well two games in row.”

On Jadyn Vermillion’s absence: “For Micah (Wicks) to get more experience being the only ball-handler and I had to play a point guard role also. Grew a lot in the past week.”

On a Class 3A state championship: “We have to get through league, but that is definitely on our minds.”
