Player Spotlight: Charlotte Renker

Playing high school ball with two teammates on the Division I radar can lead to a role player’s desire to abandon their role. But maintaining composure and quietly making your own contributions regardless of who’s in the stands and what the box score says is true sign of maturity. Charlotte Renker’s ability to quietly fit into her role has resulted in the St. Mary’s junior’s efforts beginning to make some noise and garner some attention.

“My job on this team is rebounding and keeping people out of the middle,” the 6’2” center said after St. Mary’s won the NSCHSAA title. “And I help out defensively.”

Helping out is an understatement – Renker’s tight shadowing held Kellenberg’s star center, Candace Belvedere, to one field goal and four total points in the semi-finals. Her shot blocking and inside presence have anchored the Gaels all season long, and despite playing alongside the rising stars of Jordan Augustus and Mei-Lyn Bautista, Renker’s work has put her on the radar of colleges and made a fan of her coach, Tom Flynn.

“Charlotte had some of the biggest rebounds of the game for us,” Coach Flynn said after the championship game. “She’s been coming on strong all year.”

Some college interest has begun to funnel in as well.

“I’ve gotten some interest from Colgate, St. Peters of Jersey City, Central Connecticut State and [SUNY] Binghamton,” Renker revealed. But her primary focus after the season is a summer of improvement.

“I want to work on my post moves and get quicker,” she said. “And I will play with the Riverside Hawks [for AAU].”
