El Dorado Hills
At 6’1,” you would think Kassidy DeLapp was an accomplished sportsperson—and you’d be right.
“When I was in fourth grade, my parents signed me up for El Dorado Hills Youth Basketball, and I fell in love with the sport,” she says.
So far, the Oak Ridge High School freshman has been selected for an All Star team in softball for FGSL, has been part of the team that won the girls’ basketball championship at Marina Middle School, won the overall girls’ high jump in eighth grade, and made the varsity Oak Ridge basketball team.
With the majority of her time now spent on the basketball court, DeLapp not only works at improving her own skills, but also helps her mother, a coach, to train younger girls in basketball.
“I’m a silly girl who can make you laugh more in one minute than you do in an hour, and I’m also the hardest worker you’ll ever meet,” DeLapp says. “You will always be successful if you work hard, ask questions, believe in yourself and most of all have fun!” she adds. —Tara Mendanha
