Congrats to these Sequoia student-athletes from the varsity softball team!
Trust. Respect. Empathy. Commitment. Support. Leadership. Strength. Intelligence. These are some of the many characteristics that describe Alexis Navarette. Alexis gave her all at every practice and every game. The entire team looked up to Alexis as a proven leader who is a level-handed student athlete that every player respects and is excited to play with. Alexis led with positive energy and example and was an absolute pleasure to coach. In our shortened seven game season, Alexis caught every inning and finished the season with a strong .444 batting average in her last six games as a Raven, including a timely double. We are so proud and lucky to have been able to coach such an amazing athlete as Alexis. CSU LA is lucky to have her!
As our co-captain of the Varsity Softball team, Mia led with a glow, a full heart and genuine kindness for the game and her fellow teammates. Mia always strived to be her best and was constantly asking for extra reps and drills to hone her skills. Mia, pure and simple, is a softball player, and has been since she was 8 years old. Mia is a skilled student-athlete that can hit a bomb, lay down a nasty bunt and make an acrobatic catch in the outfield. Mia leads by example and her athleticism is second to none – and she proved it every day on the field. Every player and coach wanted to be around Mia: she has an infectious positive energy and kind heart that makes you want to be a better person and ballplayer. Mia was an absolute joy to coach, and we know she has a bright future ahead.
