HOUSTON - Every athlete has one of those games where everything seems to go right.
Jorynn Ross knows that feeling.
In a 77-30 victory over St. Stephen's Episcopal on January 15, Ross did something that no John Cooper School women's basketball player has ever accomplished - joined the 20-20 club, finishing with 20 points and 20 rebounds in the victory.
"The game for me was great," Ross, who listens to "Female Goat" by Lakeyah ft. City Girls before every game said. "I love away games because of the energy that you have to bring and because you have to work hard to prove yourself in a hostile environment."
Proving herself is something she has been doing all season as one of the Dragons' leading scorers.
Heading into this week, which John Cooper School entered at 12-1 overall and 4-0 in SPC play, Ross was averaging an impressive 16 points and 14 rebounds per game.
"Being one of the top scorers all year has made me feel accomplished," Ross said. "Without the hard work of my teammates and my dedication in the offseason, being a top scorer wouldn't have been possible. My off-season workouts consist of scoring in the paint as well as developing my mid-range game and ball handling."
