Juliana Gomez is a hard-working athlete and senior at CHS who exceeds at golf and volleyball. She has recently earned titles for each sport that display her success. Gomez received top eight in her league for Girl’s Golf, made it to CIF, and was one of the top players in her league for girls’ volleyball. It is rare that a student achieves a high status for one sport, let alone two. She has put in many hours to her golf and volleyball and plans to continue with golf in the future.
Gomez is on the volleyball varsity team for CHS and is a great addition to the team. She has proven to be an exceptional athlete on the team, with her outstanding performances during games. However, Gomez has further pursued her golf career by getting into the school’s first team. Gomez plays golf on the school varsity golf team as well and is at the top of the competition. She has also been seen as a star by getting into the first team for golf. The first team is a team of the most advanced athletes chosen to play, which Gomez was a part of. The process to get into the golf’s top team league is ranked off of the player’s stacks, where they evaluate their shots. Gomez was ranked number two for hitting average in her group throughout the league, and that is how she made the team. She must be on top of her game to receive the honor of joining the team, and she did just that.
In order to get into the primary top team in league, the player must achieve top eight throughout the whole league. There are a total of 110 girls in the league and three different tournaments that eliminate players and form the teams. The first tournament eliminates 90 and keeps the top 20 girls. The next one only leaves the top eight, and it determines whether you win the first team or second team. The last tournament is going to CIF if the player makes top eight. Gomez made it to top eight and, therefore, made the team. Behind these achievements are hundreds of hours of prestigious hard practice and games. These many hours of hard work have really paid off. Gomez practices golf and volleyball for about 30 hours each week, getting out of school at fifth period to practice. A lot of her time is spent practicing both volleyball and golf. She plays golf at Mount Meadow golf course each day from 1-3 p.m. Then, Gomez goes to volleyball practice from 5-7 p.m. Evidently, being an athlete takes much more effort than it looks. Gomez manages to keep up this schedule every day while still getting in her schoolwork on time.
Gomez plans to attend college at Cal State Bakersfield for golf. She is extremely excited to go and is looking forward to playing on their golf team. However, she does not know whether she plans to attempt going professional with golf or not. Although Gomez is exceeding with golf, volleyball is still a favorite of hers.
“I am going to college for golf, but I enjoy volleyball more because it’s fun playing as a team with my friends,” Gomez said.
Gomez is very serious about her sports and that is apparent through her many years of hard work. She is glad that she has received these awards for golf and volleyball because she has worked hard for it. Her successes are seen throughout her life as a student at CHS while continuing her athletic career in college.
