Dallinger spent last season at Miles Community College in Montana, where she led the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Division I in scoring. She scored 25.8 points per game on 48.7% shooting and 42.9% from 3-point range while leading the Pioneers (24-2) to their first NJCAA tournament win.
Dallnger also tallied 6.8 rebounds, five assists and 2.8 steals per game. Her well-balanced repertoire helped her earn several awards at Miles She was named the MonDak Conference Player of the Year, Region XIII Player of the Year, National Freshman of the Yea and the World Exposure National Junior College Player of the year in 2021.
Prior to last season, Dallinger averaged 20.5 points, six rebound and four assists while playing for Narraben Sports High School in Sydney, Australia.
