Tina entered Midlothian High School in 2013, playing her first year of high school basketball on the Varsity squad. “Coming into high school I continued to work hard, so I could be one of the best. After scoring 1,000 points, I feel great about what I achieved for the game of basketball.” On January 5, 2017, Tina knew she was close to securing the milestone. After the game, Lindenfeld said, “I wanted to score 1,000 points but my main priority was playing for the team, so we could mark another win on the boards.
