Saturday, October 19, 2019—It is no surprise that our Atoms have talent, both in academics and athletics. This young Atom in particular had a trip of a lifetime as she showcased her basketball talent and athletic ability on the court against the daughter of NBA legend (and future hall of famer), Kobe Bryant. While her team did unfortunately lose, our middle school Atom’s basketball skills spoke for themselves and were noticed by Kobe. Following the game, Kobe called her by name and mentioned that he “loved her game, and basketball is going to take her places!”
Don’t just take our word for it or Kobe’s, she has been recruited and peaked interest in many colleges and universities for her basketball ability. For instance, Temple University, Hampton University, University of California, and LSU, just to name a few. We are excited to see her rise in the basketball ranks as she continues to practice, grow and hone in on her talent.
