Adapter: Kerri Young, Mitchell

Bookmark and Share

During the State 'AA' girls basketball championship against Sioux Falls Washington this past weekend, Mitchell's Kerri Young didn't exactly have her best game, shooting a dismal four for seventeen. But she adjusted.

"Shots were getting hard for me," Young said, "So I just focused on rebounding and getting other people the ball that could score."

And she did both very well, racking up 10 boards and getting the assisst on a Kristin Sabers three that would eventually be the diference maker in the Kernals 56-54 win.

Young did things like that a lot for Mitchell this season and the junior hopes to do more of it in the 2012-2013 campaign.

"Only graduating one means we can go back out here next year and try to do the same thing." Young says.

A little further off in the distance, Young plans on bringing her talents to South Dakota State where she's already committed. And maybe she can help Jackrabbit head coach Aaron Johnston out the same way she's been helping Mitchell Coach Wes Morgan.

"She's verbal," Morgan says, "But she's silent at the same time and she does a great job of getting the kids ready and letting them know what I want to get done on the floor."

A lot of that has to do with her high basketball IQ, but her knowledge of the sport didn't come easy.

"She's got a great mind for the game and she's had two brothers who have put her through a lot of grief in the past." Morgan says.

And they probably showed her a thing or two about boxing out and passing the ball when shots aren't falling too.
