"I think it was seventh grade when I got really serious about wanting to shoot it," she said, noting she would practice with her brother for hours.

As a ninth grader she made the varsity and has seen the team go through some rough seasons, 9-16 last year and 6-20 in 2011-2012.

And Chipley and Bonifay loom large.

“It's tough for us, but anything is possible with our team," she said.
