Alyssa Wruble, Courageous Student-Athlete
Alyssa Wruble is a star hockey player, who is a member of multiple teams. She often trains on the ice two-times per day and does an additional two gym sessions. This past year, she was living away during the week to train on an all-girls team, utilizing virtual school. But at a club game at home, things were different. During a game, fans from the opposing team chanted against her, told her she had male body parts, and held up a sign asking for a gender reveal. Being a solid tough player both physically and mentally, she rose above what was happening around her and was able to score two goals during the game. She is a true and dedicated athlete who plays with heart and spirit.
Alyssa is certainly courageous, but she is a role model for young girls who want to play any sport.
