This week, our 1590 WAKR Female Student Athlete of the Week is Lexi Shultz, a senior softball player from Ellet High School.
Lexi has been interested in softball from an early age and grew to love the sport.
“I've been playing ever since I was in T-ball, since I was six years old, and I've just loved it ever since then.”
Shultz is a two-sport athlete at Ellet, playing both volleyball and softball, garnering honors in both sports as a 1st team all city softball player and a 2nd team selection in volleyball.
She says working with her coaches, including head coach Chuck Shuman and her Ellet teammates has been a great experience.
“Our goal is to not only win the city championship, but to go further in the districts as well,” she said.
Aside from the team goals, she said the mark of a successful season would be the ladies coming together as one and working hard on and away from the diamond.
“I think if we're all working hard, working together, and putting in as much effort as we can, I think we'll be successful.”
After graduation, Lexi plans on attending the University of Akron, where she is already taking classes, and majoring in exercise science.
We wish Lexi the best in all of her future endeavors.
