Page turns to athletics, academics to chase collegiate dream
Daisy Page is busy and not only on the basketball court. The East Anchorage High School senior also completed her final season of volleyball. It does not end there.
Page's performance on the softball field earned her the 2016 Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year award as a sophomore, as the T-Birds finished second at the state tournament.
"My family, we just like to play a lot of sports, like to stay active, so there is not a lot of downtime, and I just play them because it's fun," says Page.
She makes it look easy on the court, field, and in the classroom, too, with a stellar grade point average.
"It's 4.0 right now. It's like time management, make sure I get my work done, doing homework, and paying attention in class a lot," Page says.
Combining athletics and academics is not always easy for Page, but, it is necessary.
"Coming up, my dad always told us our grades are important, because that's our future depends on it, because I want to go to college, so, I had to keep them good," says Page.
This T-Bird will soon become a Delta Devil, as Page has accepted a scholarship to play softball at Mississippi Valley State University. It proves father knows best, but, daughter is gaining on him.
