MARIETTA, Okla. -- To honor this week's A+ Athlete, we head to Marietta High School and meet Julie McGill.
This week’s A+ Athlete is Julie McGill from Marietta High School. Julie played both softball and basketball on the field. She has earned a spot on the All-Lake Country Conference Team since 2005 and, last year, she was the starting pitcher on the Southern Oklahoma All-Star Fast Pitch Team.
In the gym, Julie helped her team to reach the quarterfinals of state this year. This co-captain has also been on the all-tournament team at several different tourneys.
Julia excels in the classroom as well, maintaining a 3.96 grade point average. Julie is also the senior class president, a National Honor Society member, and a USAA National English Merit Award winner.
Julie is also unique in that she is highly decorated for showing live stock in stock shows. She's been a showmanship champion year after year and she knows the key to her success is a hard working mentality from someone very close to her.
Next year she'll continue her success at East Central University in Ada, where she hopes to one day be an anesthesiologist.
Congratulations to Julie McGill on being named this week’s A+ Athlete.
We'll introduce you to another A+ Athlete every Friday here on First News AM. School officials, coaches, teachers, and counselors are encouraged to send in your nominees.
