Mallorie Church of Tescott was chosen as the Commercial Tire Athlete of the Month for October. Last season, Church was a second team all-league selection.
While she has natural ability, Church also views herself as a leader and someone who her teammates can depend on.
“I look at myself as avery positive, uplifting teammate,” Church said. “I try to help my teammates as much as I can and to the best of my abilities.”
Church also holds high expectations for her teammates and sometimes she recognizes that is a weakness.
“I would say my weakness would probably be that I expect the underclassmen to just know where they should be or what to do at any given time,” Church said. “I have learned to take into consideration that coming from junior high ball straight into varsity high school ball is an adjustment. I just try to help them as much as I can.”
Next year, Church plans to attend Hays Hair Academy or Bellus Academy in Manhattan to earn my license in cosmetology and lash technician.
