REDDING, Calif. -- A Northern Section Division VII title was the perfect way to end Jaime Kuchle's fourth and final basketball season at Mercy High School.

The senior Warrior can fill up the stat sheet like no other. Kuchle led her division in rebounds, field goals, blocks, and double-doubles. No matter what the team needed, Kuchle delivered.

"I just love the sport so much. I always want to go out and do my absolute best at whatever that takes and, in this case with rebounding and defense, it's to go out, give a 110 percent and leave it all out on the floor," said Kuchle.

Head Basketball Coach Jessica Curl certainly sees that desire.

The first year head coach for the Warriors says, "Jaime is one of a kind. She gives you everything and then some every single day. She never comes with a bad attitude. She comes with so much intensity and there's no better kid. You just can't find another player like that."

After four long years as a Warrior, Kuchle enjoyed every second of her time at Mercy. "It's been an awesome ride the entire four years that I've been there, it's been wonderful."

She added, "Even with having different coaches every year, every year I've been able to learn something new. All of my teachers have always taught me something new, and I think moving forward I'm going to be really prepared for the rest of my life in anything I choose to do."

That next step for Kuchle is at the Oregon Institute of Technology where she'll be majoring in Business.

That's why she's our Subway Scholar-Athlete of the Week.
