High School

Vai four-year varsity player for Maria Carrillo for four different coaches…9.8 points and 10.4 rebounds a game her senior year…named Team MVP…MVP of the Puma Invitational junior year

Coaches' Comments

Vai will give the Bear Cubs a solid inside presence. She has the ability to create shots inside and will step outside for a fifteen-foot shot. She is a physical defender who rebounds the ball well.

Favorite sports memory: Freshmen year of high school I played with pneumonia one of my first games on varsity and made the front page of the Press Democrat the next morning.

Favorite athlete: Peyton Siva

Favorite type of music: Everything!

Favorite quote: “It’s the space between the bars that holds the tiger, and the silence between the notes that makes the music.”

If I could have dinner with ANY 3 people it would be: Jimi Hendrix, Jim Croce, My grandma

Personal: Parents Taima and Eral Thompason…Brother Mark Nun…wants to be a news anchor
