SUGAR LAND, TX (June29,
Fort Bend Baptist Academy Softball player Rachel Fox has been named the Top Greater Houston High School Athlete for the 2010 spring season by Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation and KPRC Local 2. Fort Bend Baptist Academy also received a $2,500 check from Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation in honor of Fox winning the 2010 award.
"It is truly an honor to win this award because I know there are so many other athletes that qualify as well," Fox said. "I want to thank my teammates and my coach. I cannot even imagine this year without you. This is the best way I can imagine ending this wonderful season."
Fox led the Lady Eagles to state championship with an incredible 31-5 record. She also set the state record with 1,585 strikeouts over her high school career. She has signed on to pitch for the University of Texas at Austin next year.
"Rachel is one of those kids you get to coach once-in-a-lifetime," head coach Kelly Ferguson said. "Her work ethic has rubbed off and turned our program into what it is today."
