Witnessing your journey has been nothing short of inspiring. Tali-girl, we love you to the moon and back.


Love, Mom and Dad"

"Tali, you're like a fierce warrior on the court, competing with such intensity and force! But let's talk about that unforgettable moment during the game against Union when you seemed to transition into a full-blown dance-off! It was like watching a sudden plot twist in an action movie. I couldn't decide if I should be impressed by your smooth moves or request a dance-off rematch. Needless to say, it definitely made for some hilarious film review sessions the following week! Keep bringing that unexpected flair to the court, Tali!


Your level of play is truly remarkable and it's something that sticks with me every time I watch you on the court. You pour every ounce of yourself into the game, fearlessly battling with the giants under the basket. Your dedication to the physical aspect of the game is unmatched—I've never once heard you complain; you just roll up your sleeves and get the job done. What truly sets you apart is your selflessness. You're always putting the team first, sacrificing your body game after game for the greater good. Your unrelenting commitment to the team's success, regardless of your role, is truly inspiring. And let's not forget your deadly accuracy from beyond the arc. It's a testament to the countless hours you've poured into perfecting your craft. Your ability to knock down threes at such a high percentage is a game-changer.

Tali, your journey is truly inspiring, and I couldn't be prouder of all you've accomplished. Your story is one that will resonate for years to come, serving as a beacon of hope and motivation for the next generation. Your unwavering dedication and relentless pursuit of excellence showcase what's possible when you commit yourself wholeheartedly. Keep shining your light and paving the way for others to follow in your footsteps. Tali I am so proud of you and accomplishing your dreams of having the opportunity to play college basketball. I know you are going to crush it at Portland College (PCC) and I really believe your best basketball is ahead of you. With that being said I am excited to see the growth and the person you become off the court as well. You are salt to the earth, Tali." - Coach Sanders

"Tali will always keep you on your toes, never knowing what she’s going to say or do, but that’s one of the things that I love most about her. She’s also never afraid to be herself regardless of what people say, she is who she is, and doesn’t change for anyone. One of my favorite collection of memories is any story that she’d tell. It was like it was happening in the moment, acting it out, and getting annoyed just like it was real time. I’m going to miss you lots and I hope you have a great college experience!"- Kylie


"When I think or hear 'Tali' I think big pretty hair and toilets. Tali is the funnest and most entertaining person I met this season. Her energy is unmatchable. Tali as a teammate who will give strong and firm high fives and will always lift you up. I admire Tali’s drive for the game. She is so confident and rubs it off on other people. A memory I think of is when I was at Newberg and I was playing against Sherwood last year, I remember it was a close game and all the sudden I knew who Tali was, she hit 3 after 3 and kept them in the game. Tali has a great shot and a great personality. I hope college is the best experience ever, gonna miss you Tali!" - Izabella 

"I’ve loved playing basketball with Tali this year. The energy she brings to every game and practice is one of my favorite things about her. Team camp was my favorite memory with her and getting to know her better. She’s so energetic and encouraging and just an overall great person. I'm going to miss having her next year on my team, and hope she enjoys college!!"

- Laney


"Tali, we have always been so close. I always feel so comfortable around you and love talking with you. You’re so funny and make me laugh so much. One of my favorite things you do is before every game when the announcer calls your name you turn around and give the bench (chair) a big high ten.  It is so creative and it always pumps me up watching you with a big gust of energy. A memory I have of you is when we were younger always hanging out at each other’s houses and going on trips. You make everything so enjoyable with your stories and jokes. You give so much to this team with your high energy and loving attitude. I hope for you to get to do amazing things after high school!" - Natalie 

"If you’re around Tali for long enough, you’ll begin to make unforgettable memories. She is one of the funniest people I’ve met and never fails to do or say the weirdest thing. She was the first person to really welcome me up to Varsity and has always been super supportive. Even if I don’t believe it, she never fails to say, 'HEY, you did great out there.' She’s also my unpaid private chauffeur, to or from practice, Tali’s there with her baby doll head dangling from her rear view mirror ready to go. I can’t wait for you to start swishing your 3’s out on the college court! Good luck!" - Tenley
