Jamie Zheng- Female Athlete of the Year


Congratulations to Jamie Zheng, the 2015-2016 Female Athlete of the Year.  Jamie is a senior member of the Table Tennis, Handball, and Volleyball teams.  Truly a three sport star!

Jamie feels her greatest strengths as an athlete are competitiveness, will to win, support for teammates, motivation, and strong reflexes.  She believes the athletic traits she can improve on are handling pressure, anxiety, emotions, and communication skills.  According to Jamie, “I think I was chosen to be the Female Athlete of the Year, because I have a great passion for sports.  My experiences throughout the years have helped me improve many athletic and team skills.  I take sport seriously, and I don’t want to let my teammates down.  I set high goals and expectations for myself.  I’ve also worked hard and practiced everyday to get where I am.  I put a lot of dedication into all three sports.  Over the years my confidence has really increased, as well as my athletic and communication skills.  I always do my best for my team.”

Jamie is clearly not only a model student and athlete, she is  great person and role model.  Have a great time in college, and don’t forget you are always a Cougar!
