MESSAGE FROM MOLLY
I am Molly Kelly, and I attend Hortonville High School in Wisconsin, I will graduate in 2024. I am 5-foot-6 and weigh 130 pounds and the positions that I play most often are pitcher (55 mph fastball) and second base (.406 BA). My GPA is a 4.0.
As an athlete, I believe setting goals and working hard to achieve them are important. I set goals that are accomplishable as well as motivate me to work hard. I also work very hard to keep an optimistic mindset, even if I am facing challenges. Outside of scheduled practices and games, I do workouts that improve agility, core strength and upper and lower body. On average, I work out 2 hours a day, focusing on agility for 1 hour and alternating upper or lower body for the remaining hour. I typically work out four days a week. For the 2021-22 school year, I am taking five AP/honors courses. During the 2020-21 school year, I completed four honors courses and one college-level course. I finished the year with a 4.0 GPA. I also make time to volunteer. Some examples I have done include: assisting youth softball tryouts and helping with church fundraising events. I am also involved with the spirit club at school. This club helps organize ideas for special events, such as homecoming and spirit weeks.
Thank you for taking the time to read my message.
