July 4, 2017 - Basketballs
Jhana Lane’s high propagandize basketball career during North Douglas finished on a unsatisfactory note in February.
The 6-foot-2 post postulated an ACL rip in her right knee during a use late in a 2016-17 deteriorate and wasn’t means to play in a OSAA Class 1A contest in Baker City. It valid to be a large blow for a Warriors, who went into a deteriorate with championship aspirations though forsaken dual true games in a state tournament.
The good news for a 18-year-old Lane — a new North Douglas connoisseur who’s been rehabbing a knee given undergoing medicine on Mar 7 — is she’s formulation to resume her basketball career in college.
Lane will attend Linn-Benton Community College in Albany and is eyeing a career in nursing, and will be a member of a Roadrunners’ women’s basketball team.
“I’m excited,” pronounced Lane, who was a salutatorian of her N.D. graduating class. “I wanted to go to a village college and play basketball, and (Linn-Benton) is a good program. we desired a campus. we wanted to get out (of Douglas County), though not go too far.”
Linn-Benton competes in a Southern Region of a Northwest Athletic Conference along with Umpqua, Lane, Southwestern Oregon, Clackamas, Chemeketa, Mt. Hood, Portland and Clark.
The Roadrunners tied for third in a South and finished 16-13 altogether final deteriorate underneath Debbie Herrold, losing to contingent champion Spokane in a NWAC tournament.
North Douglas girls basketball manager Jeff Davis pronounced Lane done outrageous strides as a actor on a basketball court. Lane helped a Warriors finish third in 2015 and second in 2016 during a state tourney. She averaged 12.2 points and 7.1 rebounds a diversion as a junior, and had 14 points, 7 rebounds and one blocked shot opposite Country Christian in ‘16 pretension game.
Lane averaged 10.7 points and 7.7 rebounds as a comparison before removing injured. She perceived first-team All-Skyline League honors and done third-team all-state.
“Jhana had a stubborn work ethic … she was relentless,” Davis said. “Somewhere in there she motionless she was going to be a hardest operative lady in a gym. Her youth year, when we were short-handed (in numbers), she had to play each minute. we don’t know if I’ve ever been as unapproachable of an contestant as we was with her.
“Jhana was carrying a good comparison year before going down with a injury, and we unequivocally felt for her. To have some turn of success, there has to be a eagerness to work tough and find a subsequent gear. She’s got to get in a weight room, though we can’t manager 6-foot-2 and heart and she’s got both of those things.”
Lane pronounced her knee is recovering good and is brazen of schedule. She savored her practice during North Douglas and is looking brazen to returning to a justice down a road.
“I desired a team,” Lane said. “I adore a game. Mr. Davis was a good coach, he altered me as a player. He helped me get better.”
Lane will room with a informed span of faces during LBCC — former North Douglas volleyball and basketball teammate Sabrina MacDowell and Glide’s Sierra Mauro, who will both play for a volleyball team.
