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.
SPORTS LESSONS: "The thing I enjoy the most about being an athlete is playing the sport and learning new things as I progress and grow in that particular sport. Being an athlete has taught me discipline, how to work as a team, and no matter how down you are to never give up."
