Kiare Worthy is a Senior Sprinter on the Track team. Coach Ince shared that Kiare has already improved upon his strong personal records from his junior year. He currently holds a top three spot in the conference in all four events he’s a part of (100, 200, 4 x 100 relay, 4 x 400 relay). In addition to a ton of dual meet points, he recently took 2nd overall (200 meters) and 5th overall (100 meters) at the Elmer Runge Invitational, which was highlighted by his 22.44 sec 200 meter time that puts him at 4th in CIF up to this point.
Jade Hill is a Senior captain on the softball team. She has been on varsity 4 years and is the starting short stop. Jade leads the batting order as a hard hitting slapper. Recently, Valhalla defeated Mission Hills 15-6 thanks in part to Jade Hill, who drove in four runners on a triple in the second and a single in the third. Coach McMillan shared that, “Jade is a major part of our team showing great motivation and support to her teammates.”
Thomas Parra is a Senior Outside Hitter on the Boys Volleyball team. He is poised to lead the team back for a deep run in the CIF playoffs again this year. He currently leads the team in kills with 169 and has also accrued 39 blocks and 151 digs on the season. Coach Boaz leans on his experience and leadership for a successful season.
Allison Slater is a Freshmen Jumper on the Track and Field team. She is currently 1st in the Triple Jump, 2nd in the High Jump, and 4th in the Long Jump for the entire conference. She is undefeated in the first four dual meets of the 2019 season in the Triple Jump. Coach Ince is excited to see how far this sport will take this young athlete.
