Grayson Pinholster officially has accomplished her dream of becoming a Division I basketball player.

At a ceremony in front of family and teammates Wednesday, the Community School senior signed a national letter of intent to play for Wofford College. The 6-foot-2 Pinholster will play forward for the Terriers’ women’s team, which competes in the Southern Conference.

After setting school records for rebounds and blocks this season at Community School, Pinholster received a full athletic scholarship to Wofford in Spartansburg, S.C. She hopes to help turn around a program that has had six straight losing seasons.

Pinholster is used to success. She was on the bench as an eighth-grader when the Seahawks won a state championship in 2009. Two years later Pinholster was a starter when Community School won another title.

As a senior, Pinholster averaged 13.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.7 blocks a game. She was named district player of the year and made the Daily News All-Area team.
