It’s not often that a high school student-athlete gets the opportunity to play a Division I sport while attending an Ivy League College.
For Pittsford Mendon High School’s (Pittsford, N.Y.) Lexi Green, she will get that chance as she will be attending and playing for Ivy League Cornell University’s Women’s Basketball team in 2021-22, she announced on Twitter yesterday.
The rising 5-foot-10 senior is an expectational guard who averaged 19.7 points last season and guided Mendon to its fourth consecutive sectional title. Additionally, Green drained her 1000th career point during the 2019-20 season.
Green also helped her squad capture the NYS Class A Federation championship in the 2018-19 campaign.
