Welcome to our feature - the Klein ISD Athletes of the Month - highlighting some of the best student-athletes in one of the most proud districts in the state of Texas. One girl and one boy will be selected each month representing the independent school district.
Junior Savannah Carter is having a year. She has been unhittable on the mound for the Tigers and is crushing the ball at the plate. She has reached over 250 strikeouts this season as Klein Collins dominated district play, going 13-1.
The Klein Oak baseball team won district this Spring, spraying the ball all over ball park in 2023. While the Panthers lineup is loaded with power, Owen Smith is the table-setter. The leadoff hitter has quick, powerful hands, who is fast around the bases. The senior is committed to McClennan baseball.
Dual-sport star Grace Culver had a breakout season in soccer as the Panthers had a tremendous season advancing to the Regional Tournament. Culver is instant offense on the pitch with her elite athleticism. She also can hurdle with the best in the district. Her team set a school record last month in the 100m Shuttle Hurdle Relay, breaking their old time by more than 10 seconds.
So, it’s track and field season and that means that the Klein Forest Golden Eagles take center stage. The Eagles 4x200 relay has the No. 1 time in USA and their 4x100 relay in No. 2 in the nation. Just getting on their relay team is a challenge, but look for Parker Jenkins, Jelani Watkins, Ahmir Robinson, and Jaden Galloway to dominate the headlines leading up to the State Meet. They are must-see athletes.
