Within the last one hundred years, women have made miraculous achievements whether it’s from the workforce to professional sports. For many, sports have been their past, present, and now their future.

“I plan to attend Fort Hays State University to play basketball,” senior Ellie Stearns said, “I love to represent Andover Central in as many ways as possible.”
Holding talents in multiple sports has been the case for many of the
female athletes, from volleyball to softball, they can be found playing their sports all year long.
“It’s so fun to be a part of different sporting events throughout the year, not to mention being able to represent Andover Central in multiple ways,” sophomore Avery Mason said.
For many, sports hold a special place in their lives and hearts.
“They’re [sports] important to me because it’s a way for me to destress, help my mental health, and has allowed me to develop friendships with some of my best friends that will last forever,” senior Brayden Wheatley said.
The school’s girl’s teams have been successful and dominant their entire careers, countless wins and titles have been brought back to the school.
“It feels awesome being a multisport athlete at our school because I’ve met countless people and I love how successful our girl’s sports teams are. I’m honored to be a part of them,” junior Maddi Amekporfor said.
Every season, these athletes can be found competing in their multiple sports, they show out every time and there’s never a dull moment with them on the pitch or court.
