This week’s Athlete of the Week is Emma Pinkney, a seventh-grader who participates in both softball and basketball for the Lady Patriots, were she relishes new opportunities to compete.
Emma is fresh off leading the JV Lady Patriots to a victory in their opening game of the 2018-2019 campaign.
Pinkney has been playing sports her entire life, and says that she enjoys each challenge on the court and on the field for the Lady Patriots. Emma noted that her favorite part of athletics is that she can just go out and compete aggressively, but added that each time she moves up from one level of a sport to the next it gets more challenging, but its a challenge that she loves.
When not playing or preparing for sports Emma enjoys spending time with her family and traveling but added with a smile that there isn’t much time left after sports.
