The Sierra High School Athletic Department would like to recognize Delzie Gamez as one of our top athletes this year. Here at Sierra, we embrace the idea to achieve the mission include honesty, integrity, loyalty, sportsmanship, and responsibility as well as equity and respect. Our student-athletes are committed to upholding that vision.
Delzie went outside her comfort zone this year with the unique year that COVID-19 thrust upon everyone. With certain sports not typically happening when they should, Delzie decided to try some sports that she had never done before.
In the fall she typically plays volleyball and with that sport being pushed back to the springtime she set out to run Cross Country and excelled at a high level. She was on the cusp of qualifying for state her first year trying the sport and improved every meet she participated in.
During the winter she jumped into the pool and became instrumental in the success of our girls swim program. Every day/week she improved her times and became a model athlete for the other girls on the team.
Delzie is now hitting the gym floor playing Volleyball on both the JV and Varsity teams!
It is this type of commitment we look for in our athletes at Sierra and Delzie is one of the best we have!
