Dad & daughter duo on the court - Mary Kate puts in the time for the crime

"I think I started playing basketball when I came out of the womb," she said and laughed.

"She's been coming in the gym since she was old enough to walk," Mike added. "Her and Colin (her brother) would play over in the corner while I coached the other girls. She's a true gym rat."

Her Dad says she has a lot of natural ability.

"She's also smart about the game,” he said. “She plays hard all the time and she wants to win all the time."

And win is something the Bulldogs have done a lot of this year. After last week’s 60-41 win over North Bay Haven, the Bulldogs are sitting at 19-5 overall.

Mary Kate has accumulated 392 points in 24 games, pulled down 164 rebounds and has 75 assists.

"Fast breaks are fun. I love to shoot it," she said, noting that 3s are her favorite. This year alone she has knocked down 52 3s in 24 games.
