Athlete of the Beat: Tiffany C.
With the kickoff to the 2011-2012 Pac-Five soccer season, many of the students here at the University Laboratory School are anxious to find out what this season has in store for them. From the young, energetic Intermediate teams to the talented, hardworking Junior Varsity and Varsity teams, the courageous spirit of the Wolfpack drives the entire program. University Laboratory School student-athletes not only shine in the classroom, but on the field as well. One student-athlete seems to separate herself from her teammates. The Junior Bows Beat (JBB) is honored to name junior Tiffany C. as our newest Athlete of the Beat. With all of her confidence and drive, Tiffany decided to try out for the Varsity team as a freshman back in 2009. By giving it her all, working hard, and never letting the upperclassmen intimidate her, Tiffany successfully made the 2009-2010 Lady Wolfpack Varsity team. She knew that all of that running, shooting, passing, and getting knocked to the ground totally paid off in the end. Tiffany was one of the many lucky Wolfpack ladies that took part in the 2010 Division II State Championship game. To top off her first Varsity season, the Pac-Five Wolfpack captured a victory and the Division II State Title. The fact that her playing time was very limited because she was one of the youngest on the team didn’t discourage Tiffany from striving for the best on her team. Being on the Varsity team as a Freshmen was tough, but she learned many skills and much game knowledge by just watching the game.
