As a three-sport athlete at Central Catholic, Bailey Coffman really never slows down.
Volleyball, basketball and softball keep her busy but that’s only part of the story. She’s a honor roll student that has volunteered for Special Olympics, the Midwest Food Bank and Crisis Nursery.
And her mom is her basketball coach.
“She’s got goals and I think she has set them high. She’s done well academicaly, it’s taught her how to manger her time. That’s something we all use the rest of our lives,” Debbie Coffman said. “We’re not home much. Bailey is used to that.”
And Bailey’s schedule won’t lighten when she goes to college. She will play basketball and softball at Millkin University.
“Being out of sports or having a day off, doesn’t really feel right sometimes,” Bailey Coffman admitted. “It’s good to find something to do.”
Her high school memories include playing in the state finals in two sports and being a member of the National Honor Society. But this weekend she’s expecting more memories as she heads to Washington D.C. with fellow Central Catholic students for the March of Life.
“It’s an important cause for our school. It’s going to be great to come together for one big cause,” Said Bailey Coffman. “When I talk to people, their favorite memories are whey they went to March For life with their classmates and be able to march. It’s a great experience.”
An experience that she says will up high with any of her athletic suceess.
