Congratulations to Kylie Jimenez, a junior basketball player at Horizon High School, for receiving 1,302 votes out of a total 2,774 and being named the ASPIRE Athlete of the Week for Week 23!
Kylie is the captain of the Hawks basketball team. She averaged 18.0 points, 4.0 assists and 4.0 steals this season, as her team finished the season with a 20-6 record. Recently, Kylie scored 32 points against Castle View in the Sweet 16 to help lead her team to the quarterfinals. She was selected to the All-Conference team her freshman and sophomore years, and to the Nike Tournament of Champions All-Tournament team her sophomore year, while also being selected as a Soar Member at Horizon High School for her elite athletic and academic results.
“Kylie is a true leader in that she does not shy away from holding her teammates as well as herself accountable on the court and during practices,” explained Horizon head coach Charles Arellano. “I can honestly say I have never seen an athlete prepare as hard as Kylie does; she never takes a minute off.”
Kylie is an outstanding leader in her community, as well. She participated in fundraising activities for the basketball program and helping facilitate camps for youth athletics.
“Kylie is a three-year letter winner and has started every game of her high school career. Recently, Kylie scored her 1,000th point, quite the accomplishment, especially for a junior,” added Coach Arellano. “She never complains about the extra time required to be an exceptional student-athlete and simply gets what she needs done.”
