P1FCU Prep Athlete of the Week: Anna Druffel
GENESEE, ID —
Number 12 in all girls’ sports for the Genesee Bulldogs is going to leave behind quite the legacy once she walks across the graduation stage.
It seems like the senior plays everything for the Bulldogs: volleyball, basketball and softball being the sports she plays.
With volleyball being her main sports, it’s memories made off the court she’ll remember most.
“Probably all the times we went to state, because my coach was just one of those funky guys that would anything to help us get our jitters out,” Druffel said.
And one memory specially stands out.
“One time, we were at a district play-in game and he wanted to do a toe touch,” She said while sticking her arms out to her sides, looking like a T-shape. “So, he jumped in the air and did a toe-touch with his arms straight out.”
Naturally, she and her teammates were taken back from the odd (but impressive) way to touch your toes.
She went on to say, that happened her freshman year and it’s something she’ll never forget.
And whatever he did worked. Genesee finished second in state that year.
Since her freshman year, the teams she’s played for has a lot of success, competing in state title tournaments in every sport.
For her, trophies weren’t the only thing that came with winning.
“Through that success, I’ve met so many people and my friends I’ve been on the team with from the success,” She said.
Although she couldn’t win a state title in everything, only brining a title to Genesee in softball her freshman and sophomore year, no matter how the 2018 softball season ends, she’ll have no regrets.
“Just having fun with the team. That’s what’s really important,” She said. “Ending the whole high school experience on a great note.”
