Elisabeth Wentlent learned the importance of sharing from an early age. Growing up in a household of nine, it was congested at the dinner table, and no doubt Mom and Dad Wentlent made sure everyone got their fair portion.
So it’s no surprise “Lizzy” has taken her sharing mentality to the athletic arena. “She has got to be the most unselfish player of any sport I have had the privilege of coaching,” said Greene girls’ varsity basketball coach, Dave Gorton. Gorton has 13 years of high school coaching experience, and in most years was coaching every season. “I think she is one of those rare kids who has the old-fashioned belief that you never worry about personal glory, but what’s good for people. She’s a strong character type of individual.”
Wentlent isn’t just the Trojans’ primary ballhandler, she takes care of the ball as if she is a lioness protecting her young – and she is just as fierce.
