What were some of the highlights of your athletic career?
I was able to set personal goals and then meet/exceed those goals.  They resulted in some school records.  Another highlight is making it to the state finals in both shot put and discus.

Is there a specific game or event that stands out? 
In track, I loved the Jack Pine Conference meets.  I truly loved competing in those.  Another specific game that I remember was when I scored my 1,000th point in basketball.

What are your fondest memories of high school competition?
I will always remember the friendships and camaraderie in sports.  Even in track, we were still a team even if most of the events were more individual.  I still stay in touch with a lot of those girls, even some that were competitors from different schools.  I also remember how my family made sure that I got to and from practice, games, meets, and were at almost all of them. 

What is your proudest moment as a Beaver?
It was probably making it to the state finals in both shot put and discus.  Another proud moment was when I found out that I was all-state honorable mention in basketball.  Finally, I’m very proud that I was able to represent Beaverton as an athlete. 

Who were your biggest competitors?
Anyone from Gladwin!  I always wanted to beat them and we were very competitive with them.

“It’s hard to match the records put up by Alicia during her high school career. Seldom do small towns get to see the athletes of her caliber come through, but when they do, it’s awesome to witness. Congratulations Alicia, on your reward for hard work and dedication and induction.”
