Athlete of the Week juggles 2 sports in 1 season

Most multi-sport athletes play one sport in two different seasons. But our latest Loaf ‘N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week plays three sports and two of them are in the same season.

Shaniya Jarrett, a senior at Palmer High School, plays volleyball in the fall and tennis and track in the spring. She manages all of it with a 4.1 GPA, something that requires a lot of planning.

"I basically made a calendar," said Jarrett. "And I gave it to both coaches and said 'I love both sports but I'm going to be here half the time, and here's the other half.' They were ok with that. I just have to make sure and put in additional effort into each practice so I'm not half as good as everyone else."

Shaniya says volleyball is her favorite sport of the three, and hopes to attend CU-Boulder.
