Boys Varsity Golf
A fun fact about Nicky.. When he was younger, he was hit in the eye with a golf ball during a tournament – almost losing his vision. Amazingly, he was still able to finish the tournament, suffering only a black eye in the process.
A big shout out to Nicky as you close out your final year at Timber Creek – what a true representation of a student athlete!
Ana Velez (Sr)
Girls Varsity Golf
Ana was nominated by Coach Matias. Ana she motivated most of the girls to join and be committed so that we could have a team. She is constantly encouraging teammates to practice and cheering them on their successes in and outside of golf. Along with this, she also went to the District Tournament the last two years and the Metro Tournament last year. She has a 5.0 weighted GPA, 3.99 unweighted. She is also graduating with an Associate in Arts degree from Valencia College. She is involved in many other school activities: Speech and Debate (Captain), Future Business Leaders of America (President), National Honor Society, Beta Club, Orlando Zero Hour, and Domestic Violence Awareness Club. She is the Captain for Speech and Debate, President for Future Business Leaders of America, and Special Olympics lead for Beta Club. Outside of school, she helps take care of and mentor foster children. She is very actively involved in the community due to different club activities. Two of her favorite community activities other than working with the foster care children are working with the Special Olympics and tutoring elementary and middle schoolers.
Ana started golfing last year at the beginning of the season. She is applying to multiple schools but is hoping to go to either George Washington University or stay at the University of Florida or Florida State. She already has 2 years down and will be graduating with her associates in degree in art. She has hope to go to law school following her undergraduate degree. She really loves to volunteer in the community and just be an active community member.
Congratulations again and the best of luck to you Ana as you finish your final year here at Timber Creek. You are destined for great things!
