Girls do it better!
By Soraya Bagheri
It’s that time again! Saturday SEC football, Friday night Grayson games, and the intimidation of your size compared to offensive lineman…yes its Football Season, the most exciting time for all Americans. Although most people don’t catch up to see what the ladies are up to, many girls in Grayson are at the top of their game in sports, but not only that, they are at the top in their classes!
The female students at Couch and Baycreek Middle Schools are all very successful but there are some that manage to excel in their sport and keep a high grade point average.
Ashley Steele, a student at Baycreek Middle, plays Lacrosse for Laxsanity Snippers and many other teams as well. She plays mid field for most all her teams and does exceptionally well on the field. Ashley’s Grayson team was undefeated last year and they made it to the championship while only losing by 1 point! Practices, running, and sweat does not keep this all around athlete from exceeding in school. She is in gifted classes and she is on the Principal and A/B honor roll. An outstanding athlete with brains! Go #5!
These girls are all great role models. The expectations from their coaches and teachers aren’t even as high as the expectations that these young ladies have set for themselves, but they aren’t the only ones with the same motivation. There are many other smart and talented athletes in our Grayson Cluster.
As for me, I have been taking golf lessons since I was 5 years old at Summit Chase CC and I just recently joined the Gwinnett Middle School Golf League. Although I have kept Principal and A/B honor roll, the talent from all of these girls is exceptional. There is no doubt that you will see them on the cover of ESPN magazine! So instead of chanting “ Falcons, RISE UP!”, “Go Dawgs, Sick Em!”, or “Go Rams!” Be ready to yell for these three amazing ladies. Look out; the Class of 2020 is going to be big!
