A year ago, the Palisades Dolphins won the CIF City Section Division 1 championship and were one game away from advancing to the state finals. This season, if they want to get back there, they'll look to the continued development of Sammie Arnold.
Last season, Arnold was named to the All-City Division 1 team. Now in her junior year, she's beginning to get looks from various colleges. She was invited to a few elite camps over the summer and she's heard from Montana, Willamette, UC San Marcos, and Johns Hopkins.
She recently took an unofficial visit to Montana. Although she still has time; she's got another year of high school basketball after this one, she's got a sense of what she'll be looking for when the time comes to make a college decision.
She's keeping all her options open and won't limit herself the way other players do. She's just grateful to possibly get the chance to play basketball at the next level.
"I'm looking for a team that's like family. I love basketball and I'm just really excited to get to the level where everyone is how I am, everyone just works, works, works, I'm really excited about that
