ATHLETE FUN FACTS

 

Who do you look up to?

Maura said her coaches and people who help her get better. Anthony Cay because he challenges her each and every time she goes to see him if she gives 100% he knows she has 105% so he will get that other 5% out of her.

 

Her pitching coach, Cori Munoz, keeps her focused on why she is pitching. Her current softball coaching staff season keeps things fun.

 

What do you love about sports?

Maura loves any kind of competition and being with friends and her coaches.  She loves going to conditioning and being active and working to get better all year round.

 

What do you do in your spare time?

Maura is active in our community, she has volunteered at The Lulac Senior Center, volunteered during Fiesta week, working during the summer at our family fireworks stand and sells water bottles to raise money for Helping Hands.

 

She also enjoys volunteering at a family friend's local restaurant and playing with her niece and nephew, Brynn and Braxton.

Congratulations, Maura!
