She was an all –Maine selection at Deering and after high school she played at USM ( 1981-1985) where many of her scoring records still stand today, some 35 years later. She once scored 47 points in a single game. Her career scoring mark of 2357 points and most field goals scored in a game (18) have stood the test of time.
