Biggest Sports Thrill: "Winning state in basketball (my sophomore year)."
Best advice I've ever received: "My coach always tells me, 'Repetition is the mother of all skills.'"
Last week's accomplishments: Stuart pounded three home runs, going 5-for-6 with nine RBIs, as the Bobcats (3-3 Region 1, 6-10 overall) defeated Clearfield, 20-16 on Thursday.
Stuart on their performance: "I think that we definitely could be playing better and that we haven't played to our potential yet. That's exciting, but also a little bit disappointing. The Clearfield game really helped us to pull it together and will help us in the second half of region. (The big day at the plate) was really cool. It shows that all the practice really pays off. It was good to have those kind of results in a situation that was so important. I was glad to see that I could do that mentally. Our big thing this season is to find a happy medium between letting go of mistakes and staying intense. We had to trust in each other (after squandering a 15-2 lead) and know that we were gong to come out with the win. It's always a goal to get to state, but we just really want to win region, which is one thing that Sky View has never done."
Coach Shane Jones on Stuart: "She's just really, really athletic and quick. She's not a real big girl so to have the power that she has is impressive and surprises people. She has a good arm and I could probably play her in five or six different spots. She's a great kid and a good student."
After High School: "I've been looking at a couple of colleges. I want to go into exercise science or physical therapy. I'd like to play softball after high school."
