SADLER, TX -- To honor this week's A+ Athlete, Daniel Gotera headed to S & S High School to meet Kenzie Daniels.
This week's A+ Athlete is Kenzie Daniels from S & S High School. Kenzie is #1 in her class, and she says her success in her studies comes from her love of athletics, especially her favorite sport, volleyball.
On the court, Kenzie has been a member of the Lady Rams volleyball team since she was a sophomore, acting as the team’s setter.
She has also participated in various summer leagues in north Texas and says she loves the game because of the way she can interact with her friends.
Her leadership is very important to her coach, Teresa Tynes, who has taught Kenzie ever since she was in the sixth grade.
When she graduates next year, Kenzie wants to attend Texas Tech University with her older sister and study medicine and to eventually to become a surgeon.
Kenzie says the people that have helped her get to this point have been her parents.
