High School:
Centennial HS






About Rachael: Coach Bonvicini says: "Rachael brings us a very competitive attitude. She's tough, she's strong, she's able to hit the boards. She's very good inside around the basket with either hand. She's very hard to contain down low because she's one of those `garbage' type of players that everybody wishes they had. She's going to do all the little things that everyone hates to do, that sometimes go unnoticed. She's a winner, and that's the best thing about Rachael. We're probably going to play her mostly at the three, where she can utilize her power on the inside and be able to score on the perimeter"...
