It’s time to celebrate our Athlete of The Day!

Claudia Magne, nominated by Sports Mama, Caren Magne, is our Athlete of the Day!

Tell us about Claudia’s achievement: I am so, so, so proud of my daughter. She was rejected by a coach at a local state college here in Florida in the 10th grade. The coach said she will never be good enough for her college team.     Well, folks… she proved her wrong. With my daughter’s very hard work, practice and the will to continue on in the face of adversity she attended this coach’s summer volleyball camp and was playing the same (if not better) than the players already on the team.     My daughter never thought she would hear these words from her “we will keep in touch this year I like the way you play”!!!!!!  

Tell us about a character trait Claudia has that you admire: Her perseverance, hard work, and confidence to keep going and pursue her dream of playing volleyball in college even when told by coaches she will never be good enough to play in college. And I am proud of her ability to speak diplomatically with these coaches after she proved them all wrong.
Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know:   We want Claudia to know how very, very proud of her we are! All us – your parents, friends, and others- are proud that you did not give up when facing extreme adversity!
Congrats, Claudia!
