“Well, I think when Sam leads by example. Like I said, she's not a real flashy person. She is a person that shows true caring for other people. So that to me draws people to her and because of that she can kind of imminent positivity to them. And help them in everything that they do. So in the classroom setting that's great, but also on the volleyball court it's amazing what she can get her teammates to do for her.
Samantha plays volleyball and basketball for the Lady Hornets. In volleyball she's a 3 year letterman, and she was a Academic All-District award winner, as well as TSWA All-State Honorable Mention. In basketball Samantha is a 4 year letterman, and was awarded Academic All-District each season. Outside of sports, Samantha is involved in the National Honor Society, Young Republicans, 4-H, and FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes). In her spare time, she coaches for the Caldwell Little Dribblers and she also helps out at her church.
Jane Anne Giese - Coach
“The team definitely looks to Sam in all aspects of the game. So whether it's we need a kill, a block, an ace we're looking at her to get kinda that spark started for us. But she also starts a little fire with all of our younger players too because they want to be like her. They call her beast, they call her their idol and they want to perform just like her.”
Samantha Hoelscher - Student
“ The driving forces behind me doing everything I do is really just knowing it will set me up for my future. And that it'll help me to get where I want to be when I grow up. I don't want to mess things up now, and then later on say I really wish I would have one things differently.”
After High School, Samantha wants to attend Texas A&M University and hopes to one day become a Physical Therapist or an Athletic Trainer.
Congratulations to Samantha Hoelscher of Caldwell High School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
