Kate Gordon '99

A four-year starter on SJND Women’s Basketball team, Kate was part of the first SJND Women’s basketball team to qualify for the North Coast Section Playoffs and was also the first SJND Women’s Basketball player to earn a college scholarship to play D1 basketball at UC Riverside. Not only was Kate a four-year starter, she was captain and an All-League selection all four of her years at SJND. A tough, gritty point guard, Kate could do it all offensively and defensively, she even had the task of guarding the opposing team's center when the situation called for it. Kate graduated from SJND as the Women's Basketball career leader in points and assists. Longtime SJND faculty member and Girls Basketball Coach, the late Steve Arlett said he would do “everything in his power to make sure that nobody ever wore her number again.”  Kate states, “I made some lifelong friends and a lot of memories along the way. I now live happily with my partner, Alysa and love life a lot!”
