Meet Our Athletes
Varsity Cross Country
I started running my junior year, and I have to admit I was a little hesitant to join this team because I didn't think I could get through with running miles everyday. However, a friend and I decided we would do it together, and throughout these past two years, I’ve learned a lot.
I always knew how to run, but coach taught me how to win. He made me stronger everyday. Together, my two coaches helped me improve my time and find that voice in my head to work hard and keep pushing past my boundaries and beyond my potential.
I would like to thank my team for those moments when I said I couldn’t, when they told me I can. For those moments when I thought I had failed, they responded with “well done.” Lastly, when I said I don't believe in myself, they replied with, “We believe in you.” It was an honor to be part of Cross Country.
Varsity Volleyball, Basketball, Softball
I love all sports. My dad has always had a great impact on my athletic career. He's been there every day, just like my mom encourages me academically to be the best I can be.
I really like the sisterhood at Ramona, and I felt at home here immediately. I didn't know many people when I came, so being on the teams is where I started to make friends. Now I have friends throughout the school.
We pray as a team before each game, and I always ask God for guidance and help, especially in stressful situations. That helps me get through the tough times---and so does having so may great people around me.
Varsity Tennis, Soccer, Softball; Connie Parker Award Winner
I have been a passionate softball player since I was 4 years old. It's a true blessing to be able to develop my skills and exercise my leadership abilities while creating an irreplaceable bond with my teammates on Ramona's softball team. These past years on the team have allowed me to flower into the player I have always wanted to become.
I play sports because physical activity helps me stay positive and keeps me healthy. I also deeply value spending time outdoors.By playing sports, I become one with my surroundings.Being an athlete at Ramona helps strengthen all aspects of my character as I develop my ambition, empower my peers, and persist for excellence. These qualities not only shape me as an athlete, but as a diligent student as well.
I play volleyball because it's a sport that involves logic and teamwork. I also love competing and playing against hard teams to improve my skills.
When I graduate from Ramona, I'd like to become a lawyer. I love to argue for what's right and be a voice for those who do not have one.
I love working with my teammates to achieve a common goal.
