Coach Quinzale Taylor said: "She's a standout for our team, Division I prospect and a scholarly athlete. Off the court, Alayna does things so far that as coaches we don't have to ask her to do. She went to scout two teams in our section, they were playing close to us and she got a scouting report of the teams. She's played post, center, guard. She can pretty much do anything on the court. Alayna is either leading, or close to, in all of the core stats."
