Open Letter.

From Angelina Cortes. Monte Vista Christian High School. CSUMB.

Dear Players,

Senior year was a very fun and exciting year. It went by so incredibly fast, make sure to enjoy every second of it. I wish I could go back and experience everything once again. I was taught a lot of important things during this year. I learned the importance of hard work, patience and perseverance. It took many sacrifices and countless hours of hard work to make myself into a better basketball player. However, I don’t regret it. I also learned patience throughout this process. It takes time to start seeing your results from the work you put in. Once you start to see results from your hard work, it is a very satisfying feeling. One example of this was this year when my school team made it to the semifinals of state. We made girls basketball school history by accomplishing this. All of our tireless work in the off-season and in-season payed off. My team persevered through all of the rough times and we were able to make history. So when things get tough, push through it. When you want to give up, don’t. Success is awaiting around the corner. There were times where I didn’t feel like working out or giving my full effort. However, pushing through times like these made me a mentally stronger player. In the summer and beginning of my senior year, I was excited to get interest from colleges. I was honored and shocked to be offered a place on the team at CSUMB. Playing at the NCAA Division 2 level was a dream of mine. I was so happy that my hard work actually payed off. My final advice to you would be to work as hard as you possibly can and make your dreams come true.

Angelina Cortes
