WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU TAKE AWAY WITH YOU AS YOU LEAVE HIGH SCHOOL?
“Going to the playoffs for softball, making it to the fourth round. That was an amazing experience for me and the girls and I couldn’t have asked for a better season.”
WHAT WAS IT LIKE GOING THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL DURING THE PANDEMIC?
“The past four years have changed my life since Covid happened my sophomore year. It extended our spring break then cut off our undefeated season. It was really hard to get back where we were our junior season but then we got back our senior year.”
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR FELLOW STUDENTS?
“Be consistent in your classroom. Don’t get behind because it only gets harder to push forward. When you play, keep it relaxed and know you can do it.”
