My name is Isabella Carlin and I am a sophomore at The Woodlands College Park High School. I am a member of National Charity League, DECA, and am a violinist in the CP Orchestra. I am also a staff writer for the CP Paladin Newspaper. I enjoy traveling, watching Astros baseball, and trying new restaurants. In the future, I hope to study journalism and media in college. My dream is to work for a major newspaper or magazine company. I enjoy the VYPE U program because I get the opportunity to cover all of the talented athletes at my school and get to build my journalism portfolio in the process. I also enjoy getting recognized for my writing and sharing College Park's stories with the Houston sports community. This year I am most excited to cover CP baseball, football, and track!
Last Wednesday, the College Park and Oak Ridge softball teams met to play their district game in front of a large crowd of Cavalier and War Eagle fans at College Park. The Cavaliers entered the game having won their past 4 games and tournaments and the War Eagles entered being ranked first in Class 6A.
In the first inning, an Oak Ridge home run and 2 additional runs hurt the Cavaliers but they looked to battle back.
Pitcher Grace Fanset kept Oak Ridge scoreless for the next 3 innings, but College Park had difficulty scoring due to Oak Ridge's tough defense. By the end of the 5th inning, the score was 7-0.
Cavalier Ava McCracken's double brought in the only run of the game for CP. The final score was 11-1.
The Cavaliers put up a strong fight but the War Eagles' offense was unstoppable. Check out some photos below!
During athletic events and tournaments, College Park fans pack into the stands and get ready to cheer on the Cavs to a victorious win. Little do they know that down on the field a group of talented students are preparing for their prospective futures as sports trainers.
The College Park Sports Medicine Program is run by head trainer, Jason McDonald and consists of 26 skillful students. These individuals spend class time, afternoons, and weekends learning skills about the sports medicine profession. Students get the opportunity to learn about wound care, emergency awareness, and CPR while applying these skills to real situations in a variety of sports.
