Courtney is an athletic guard who excels defensively. With quick feet and hands she can apply pressure to opposing offenses both in the full court press and half court situations. Courtney is working hard with our Academy coaches to develop her individual skills on offense and take her game to the next level.

Her preparation and work ethic towards the game has made her a stand-out at every age group level in New Zealand, culminating in her winning the MVP of the Adidas Super 64 tournament on our last tour to Las Vegas in 2013.

Courtney is applying that same work ethic and passion for success in the classroom as she prepares herself towards her goal of achieving a scholarship to the United States. She is looking for a scholarship to the United States starting in the 2015/16 season.
