My name is Bailey Cannon and I am a sophomore at General Mclane High School. I have played softball since I was 8 years old and have loved the game ever since. I am a hard working and self-motivated player and student. No matter what level I am at, I am always striving to reach the next level.
Academically, I am taking several accelerated freshman courses and have maintained a 4.0 GPA. I was recognized as Student of The Month in 8th grade and held the leadership position of 8th grade advisor. I was selected by my teachers to receive the Jim Connor award for Athletic and Academic Excellence. I also achieved a 1st Award (highest) at the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science State Competition as an 8th grader.
Athletically, I have been a starting pitcher for my Erie Frost Travel team at the 16U level since I was thirteen years old. We have competed in tournaments in the Erie, Cleveland, Buffalo and Pittsburgh areas. I have pitched for the General Mclane High School summer league team since fifth grade. I have also played JV volleyball and varsity basketball in my freshman year.
Of course, I have experienced setbacks. The feeling of losing always motivates me to work harder. My coaches tell me that I show the same calm emotions whether I am winning or losing.
Although I am only a freshman, I am already looking forward to continuing my athletic and academic career at the college level.
