My first two seasons of High School Varsity were played in El Paso, TX. As a Junior I began playing for Pioneer Valley High School in Santa Maria, CA. I will continue to play for Pioneer Valley as a Senior. My season statistics listed above are those of my first year with Pioneer Valley, my career statistics are from my first two years in Texas combined with Pioneer, with the exception of slugging, on base percentage, and batting average (those career stats do not include pioneer, only first two seasons in Texas). I did my best in obtaining the most accurate results I could get. Thank you very much in advance for taking time in reading over my profile. I truly am looking forward to hearing from you.
Athletes are leaders both on and off the field. For example, a time I had to lead off the field was when my youth group was challenged to put together as many care packages as possible for troops and their families in our area. My group was extremely overwhelmed by this task and I just took the lead. I took the lead because I believe that anything is possible once you set your mind to it. I began delegating tasks, dividing the group up into teams in order to accomplish each task and in the end, we were extremely successful. With all the donations we were able to earn, we managed to win the challenge by putting together over 350 packages! Such an accomplishment that my group and I will always remember. On the field, I demonstrate leadership by constantly communicating and motivating my teammates. I really enjoy making everyone smile because that keeps the motivation going to push for the win even when we are down by a mile, push for the win, never give up!

I pursue "healthy athletic performance" by following my coaches instructions during conditioning, practice, and games. I manage my time effectively, allowing myself to be both physically and mentally ready for both athletics and the classroom. I have been a scholar athlete my entire high school career and respect my coaches and teachers guidance inside the classroom and on the field. As long as my time management exists, I will not exhaust myself physically which allows me to have "healthy athletic performance". I go beyond school conditioning and practices by going to my local gym and getting some extra batting and pitching, however, I never go against what my coaches have taught me. My goal is to remain healthy and continue to excel as a student-athlete.
I am extremely involved in my community, in fact, since my freshman year I have completed approximately 400 hours of community service. I have been involved in on-campus clubs such as: Officers Club (club Treasurer), National Junior Honor Society, Varsity Softball, Junior Varsity/Varsity Volleyball. I have also been involved in my community by volunteering for my church and youth group, and had community service hours for the National Junior Honor Society. My service hours include helping out at my Church bizarres, attending retreats, going out with my peers in the Honors Society to clean up trash at local parks and other areas, etc. Volunteering my time to assist in my community is extremely rewarding and I wish nothing more than to continue doing so throughout the course of my lifetime.
