BRYAN, Texas -- Classroom Champions, sponsored by American Momentum Bank.
News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Faith Starnes. The St. Joseph Catholic School Senior has a 4.3 GPA, and is currently ranked third in her class.
Amy Matocha – Teacher
“Faith is the type of person that I would want if I owned a business. I would want Faith working for me. She's very hardworking, she's very loyal, and she's a leader. Faith can get anybody in her class to do anything that she thinks that needs to happen. She just has a lot of energy, and people trust her, people like her.”
Faith is the Team Captain of the volleyball and basketball teams at St. Joseph. She also runs track and plays softball for the Lady Eagles. For her efforts in volleyball, Faith was named Player of the Year, as well as 1st Team All-State and All-State Academic selection. And in basketball last season, she was the Offensive Player of the Year and the TABC (Texas Association of Basketball Coaches), 2-A three point field goal champion. Outside of athletics, Faith is the President of the Student Council, she's involved in Eagles for Life, the National Honor Society, and plays in the Band.
Seth Walker - Coach
“She has a drive to just perfection. Over the summer this past year she was in here multiple times a week just working on her shooting form, working on her game. Trying to make herself as successful as she can be on the court. And she wants to play in college next year as well; so that's also driving her.”
Faith Starnes - Student
“I think I would consider myself both a leader by example and by my actions. I think in practice I'm more of a vocal leader, telling my teammates like what they need to do or helping them with something. But then when it comes to games I'm more of a leader by example because I can just show them you know, like what I was trying to tell them. And then by just how hard I work in games. I'm like kind of both.”
After High School, Faith wants to attend either the University of Dallas or Franciscan University of Stuebenville Ohio, and she will major in Biology.
Congratulations to Faith Starnes of St. Joseph Catholic School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
