The Upper Keys Weekly is proud to partner with the Coral Shores Athletic Department to highlight this week’s “Canes Sports Standout.” Recipients are chosen on qualifications of academic excellence, academic standing and community involvement. We thank our future leaders and the CSHS Athletic Department for allowing us to share a little “Hurricane Pride.”
A three-sport athlete in varsity basketball, cross country and track, Rodriguez said her experiences have taught her to work hard and never settle. A captain of the basketball and cross country teams, Rodriguez’s accomplishments include being a three-time MVP and an offensive player of the year in basketball. Her favorite sport is basketball, having played since 8 years old. Her memorable moment was during the senior night basketball game when she scored her 1,000th point. Rodriguez plans to attend a four-year college to major in a science-related field. Her advice to younger student-athletes? “Always work hard to reach your goals and enjoy every moment because these four years fly by,” she said.
