News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Sofia Melgoza. The St. Joseph Catholic School Senior has a 4.4 GPA, and is currently ranked number one in her class.

“I think that Sofia actually has a very deep love of learning. She is interested in the subject matter. She understands it and she knows how to grasp concepts, and use those concepts, and apply those concepts. And so, I think that she is actually motivated by the learning itself. She’s one of those academic people that just loves learning, and loves achieving, and loves moving on and setting goals, and reaching those goals and then going even further.” - Amy Matocha, Teacher

“She’s a great self motivator, whether that’s in the classroom, or on the basketball court, or any of the other sports she plays here St. Joseph. And she’s just ready to go, moment one of the day or moment one of the class, and always puts in maximum effort. Her willingness to show up everyday, on time and work hard, and be there is probably greatest you know, attribute for the last four years. She’s shown up everyday and she’s worked hard...That’s a great example you know, to show the younger kids as a varsity basketball player.” - Seth Walker, Coach

“I try to lead by example. You know everything I do I try to do as best as I can, and then I just try to keep a positive attitude through thick and thin. Well I work hard because I like everything that I do to be done well. And then also, when I look back on high school, I don’t want to have any regrets about the things that I did,” said Melgoza.

After high school, Sofia plans on attending Texas A&M University and majoring in Bio-Chemistry.

Congratulations to Sofia Melgoza of St. Joseph Catholic School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
