Coaches' Comments

Vai gained a lot of game experience last year and we are excited at the improvement she has made. Vai will be asked to be one of the Bear Cubs main post players, she has the ability to be strong and physical inside but also step out and be a threat. 

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 Earl Thompason…Brother Mark Nun…wants to be a news anchor
