1. My nickname is “freight train”. My middle school coach, Gayle Kendrick, gave me this nickname because he said when I would drive to the hole I was unstoppable just like a freight train.

2. My jersey number is 30. I wear this # for two reasons. First because in the bible the #30 symbolizes a higher degree of dedication and secondly, in science the atomic #30 is malleable when heated, which means it does crack or rupture under heat or pressure.

3. My favorite hobby outside of basketball is singing.

4. Lisa Leslie is who I would like to play one-on-one.

5. I believe that my game can be more closely compared to the game of Brittany Griner.

6. My momma is my role model. She is always there for not only me but the whole team and anyone else who needs her.

7. I want basketball fans to know that I keep God first in everything I do, I want him to get the glory. So, everytime I hit the court, I give it my all. Because I always want give to God MY BEST.

8. My favorite moment in basketball so far has to be my 8th grade year. I was the only returning starter and I literally had to play every position. Everyone doubted that we would have a good season. But we had a great season. We advanced to District Tourney for the first time in ten years.

And I would just like to say that I am proud to be coached by Coach Darryl Durham. He is a wonderful coach. Even though he has been dealing with obstacles with his health, he still shows us he cares ,not just about basketball. But also our education. He is a phenomenal coach and truth be told, i don’t know what kind of player I would be if he was not my coach.
And also I want to thank my daddy for being my earthly strong tower.

Thank you and God bless.
Ms. Katia “Freight Train” Polk
#30, WSHS Lady Spartans.
