GILMAN NAMES 2020 SCHOLAR ATHLETES
Sixth in our alphabetical series of Cloverbelt Conference 2020 Scholar Athletes
I have participated in three sports throughout all four years of my high school career. By the end of the year, I will have earned a total of 12 letters combined from volleyball, basketball, and softball.
I have also earned a total of 10 All-Conference Awards. Volleyball: 2nd Team All- Conference and (2x) 1st Team All-Conference, Honorable Mention All-State in Division Four. (2x) team captain and team co-Cloverbelt East Conference Champions this year. Basketball Honorable Mention All-Conference, 2nd Team All-Conference twice, and 1st team All-Conference. I also reached the 1,000 point milestone this year. Team captain both my junior and senior year. 2019 softball season, our team became Conference Champions, Regional Champions, and Sectional Champions. Earning our first softball state berth since 2006. Regional Champions in the year 2016-2017.
The awards I have earned in this softball include; Honorable Mention All-Conference, earning 1st Team All-Conference twice, 1st Team All-District, and Honorable Mention All-State for Division Five.
Being part of three sports have immensely helped me grow as a person and a leader. It allowed me to set high goals and feel so accomplished when I achieved them. I was able to learn how to lead a team and teach younger players how to improve themselves. It also taught me great multi-tasking skills because while I’ve been involved in three sports, I was still striving to earn A’s in all my classes. I maintained a 3.97 GPA while participating in these sports and clubs. I believe that all these successes will assist me when I go on to college in the future.
I started playing sports at a very young age and through those sports I developed skills that have benefited me to this day. Sports have driven me to keep my grades up, along with learning to balance everything I have on my plate. Being an athlete I personally believe your mind has a lot to do with your physical success.
This has helped me maintain my grades because I am just as willing to give my mind a workout as I am my body. Because of this working hard is something that comes naturally to me, and I have confidence in my ability to succeed in the future.
I plan on attending North Central technical College for the electrical power distribution program. I hope to become a lineman and buy a farm around my hometown.
