It’s no surprise Kate Hill has excelled on the basketball court considering her family tree.
Hill comes from a sports family. Her father played basketball at the University of Toronto, her mother was a triple and long jumper at the University of Toronto, her sister Sami played four years of basketball at Virginia Tech and her two brothers both played four years of collegiate baseball.
Kate Hill, a 2016 graduate of the Peddie School, was named MVP of her team in her senior season, averaging 12 points per game. She was named to the Times of Trenton All-Area team as a junior, with an average of 13 points and three assists. She also participated in both soccer and track.
Hill started her collegiate career at Rutgers and earned an Academic All-Big Ten Honours in her second season, appearing in 22 games while averaging 1.4 points, 1.0 assists and 0.6 rebounds per game.
In 2018-19 she transferred to Lasalle University but sat out due to the NCAA transfer rules. The following season she finished fifth in the NCAA — and first in the Atlantic 10 — in assist and turnover ratio at 2.95.
In March 2021, she finished her third season with LaSalle.
