• GPA: 3.6 (AP statistics, environmental science)

• SPORTS: Soccer, basketball

• FAMILY: Allison and Robert Dougherty of Makawao

• ACTIVITIES: Debate Club, Lettermans Club, Rotary Club, Maui United Soccer Club

• SPORTS LESSONS: “What I enjoy most about being an athlete is the team bonding and the rush of adrenaline I get every time I play a soccer or basketball game, or even at practice. It’s because I am doing something I love. … Being an athlete has taught me how to be a leader … and also good time management skills, which will help me when I play soccer in college.”

* Sports Spotlight students are selected by athletic officials from Maui County high schools and these profiles are compiled by the sports department of The Maui News. The Alexander & Baldwin Foundation makes a $200 donation in honor of each student athlete to their high school’s athletic fund.
