Favorite Sports Quote: “There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.” – Derek Jeter
You have spent the last few weeks doing what to stay busy? I’ve been going for runs and working out. I’ve also watched a lot of Survivor. It’s been nice to have all this extra time with my family before I head to college next fall.
What are your plans after graduation? After graduation I will attend Husson University to study exercise science/physical therapy. I will also play basketball with the women’s basketball team.
"A contact hitter, Makaelyn showed an ability to hit to all fields. She is a shortstop with solid instincts and good range. Everyone respects Makaelyn as an athlete and more importantly as a person. She has demonstrated an ability to lead her peers while maintaining a close bond with the people she plays with" - Mr Urquhart (Athletic Director)
