For as long as she can remember, Ellie Woodall of Sacred Heart has had a basketball in her hands. Now a junior, Woodall first started playing basketball in the first grade. This season the point guard is enjoying the fruits of her labor and she loves playing with this group of girls.
“My team is a family. I love them because of the welcoming family atmosphere. We’re all best friends; it’s great,” said Woodall.
Playing at Sacred Heart is more than just a place to get a high school education. For Woodall it’s a place where she knows the support for her, and her teammates will always be present.
“Sacred Heart is a great place to be a student-athlete because the teachers are willing to work with you outside of class time, that way I can be sure to perform well in and outside of the classroom,” said Woodall.
The junior is undecided on where she will attend college, but her goal is to attend a four-year university and study Diagnostic Imaging.
Outside of basketball, Woodall is the co-editor of the yearbook, serves as a junior house/community leader and plays volleyball in the fall and runs track in the spring.
