After This Shot, Katie Powell Is The Coolest Girl In Pekin High School


Buzzer-beaters from halfcourt and beyond are always fun, no matter the circumstance. But when such a buzzer-beater doubles as a last-second game-winner, that’s all the better. Over the weekend, Katie Powell of Pekin High School in Illinois joined the select few who can actually say they pulled off such a buzzer-beater themselves. And then, Powell’s insane shot was commemorated with viral internet fame. That’s pretty much every cool thing that can happen to a high schooler, all at once. Not a bad week for Powell. [Reddit]
