Adriana Vasquez, 5’10” post from Channing, will be dunking the ball at Frank Phillips College this fall.  

Adriana has played exceptionally well all four years at Channing.  She averaged 17.8 points and 12.3 rebounds this year per game.

She has participated in cross-country all four years and made it to regionals each year.  This year she will be advancing to State in discus.  The state competition will be June 5-6 in Austin.  She also plays softball.

Vasquez has made All-District all four years and in 2007-08 was voted Most Valuable Player.

Adriana who loves Christian music attends St. Peter and Paul’s Church and Grace thru Faith Church.  She loves to spend time with her friends and shop. Her favorite food is Fettuccini Alfredo. 

She also represents Channing as this year’s Salutatorian. She is the daughter of Jamie and Santa Valdez and Sonia and Donivan Adair and has four sisters and two brothers.

Adriana gives these words of advice, “God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle.”

Robert McLain, head girls coach from Channing expressed, “Adriana has been a rock for us in her career at Channing.  She has always been a good post, but this year we asked her to step outside and play some point and wing for us occasionally as well, and she responded wonderfully.  We will miss her next year, but we are extremely proud to have another former student playing at the collegiate level.  She is such a great young woman on top of it all.  All the Lady Eagles wish her luck in the future.”
