April female athlete of the month: senior CJ Norris


Senior C.J. Norris has been playing soccer since she was five years old and has played for Hays High all four years of high school.

“I got involved because I wanted to try something new,” Norris said. “It was my favorite sport that I tried.”

Norris has returned this soccer season after her knee injury last year, at the beginning of the season.

“My biggest supporters are my mom, dad and my teammates,” Norris said. “They encourage me and push me to make myself better.”

Norris said she enjoys bonding with her teammates and gaining new friends because she loves to make new friends.

“My favorite part about soccer is the competitiveness and the pride that you get when you win games, especially against a rival,” Norris said.

After high school, Norris plans to go to Barton Community College to play soccer for two years and then go to a four-year college that has not been determined to study pre-med.
