Jayne Oberdorf

School: Greensburg Salem

Sport: Basketball

Class: Junior

Claim to fame: Oberdorf made a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 28 points to lead Greensburg Salem (6-8, 3-4) in a 55-46 win over Laurel Highlands in Section 3-AAA action Jan. 19. Oberdorf scored 22 points in a 51-47 loss to Franklin Regional on Jan. 21, and also added 19 points in a 54-46 loss to Mt. Pleasant on Jan. 16. Oberdorf also pitches for the Greensburg Salem softball team.

"I'm just happy right now because I have been working on my shot a lot in practice, and now it's coming along," Oberdorf said.

What's your favorite sport, basketball or softball?

I'd say whatever is in season. It just depends.

You have a younger sister, Claire. Is there any sisterly competition•

We just push each other a lot. Sometimes it's frustrating, but after practice we are still friends.

Who's the better athlete?

We're different. She's more of a finesse player. She is more natural, and I just power my way through everything.

What's your favorite part about sports?

Definitely love having something to do and always being active. If I had to go home and do homework, I wouldn't like it. I just like hanging out with my teammates the best. We are like a family.

What's your most memorable moment?

Beating Laurel Highlands (last) Thursday because it was a much needed win for us.

What do you like the most, hitting a game-winning 3-pointer or having an outstanding pitching performance?

Since it's basketball season, I would have to say hitting the game-winning 3. If it was softball season, it would be the other way around.
