IT'S THAT TIME OF THE WEEK AGAIN, WHERE YOU GET TO MEET ANOTHER MEMBER OF OUR ALL SCHOLASTIC SPORTS TEAM. TODAY'S ADDITION IS A TRIPLE THREAT WITH SOCCER, SOFTBALL AND SCHOLASTIC SKILLS.
"Clarkdale softball and soccer standout Kennedy Castleberry always aims for perfection but it comes at a cost." "Kennedy Castleberry: I feel like I want to please everybody; my teammates, my coaches, the fans and so I really worry about reaching perfection even though I will never be perfect." "Rick Roberson: She worries about her performance and that worry turns into hard work and a little extra work, a little extra preparation, which I'd like to bottle some of that and sell it." "She may never be perfect but pretty close to it. Kennedy is first in her class with a 4.23 GPA. She's part of the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society and she's class vice president. Let's not forget, Kennedy is also captain of the soccer team. She's won four softball state championships and her soccer team finished state runner-up just a few weeks ago." "Wes Roy: She's pretty much all business in the classroom as well. All A's, all the time. I just can't say enough positive about her as far as a student in the classroom and obviously as an athlete as well." "This past season, Kennedy helped Clarkdale's soccer team reach a record setting year with the school's first ever north state championship. Because of the team's success, she changed her mind about going straight to Mississippi State." "Kennedy Castleberry: After our last soccer game, I realized how much I was going to miss it and now I'm really considering going to East Central to play soccer."
CASTLEBURRY IS GOING TO STUDY ENGINEERING AT EAST CENTRAL AND MISSISSIPPI STATE, PUTTING HER INNER PERFECTIONIST TO WORK.
