Misty Sohse is a freshman at McDonald County High School. Out of everything that happens in school, her thoughts are mostly on basketball. She’s been playing before she could even remember. The first time playing on an actual team was when she played on the Noel basketball team back in her fifth grade year. She says that it was her “littest” year because she “carried the team.”
She left at the beginning of sixth grade, but decided to come back a few days after the tryouts. At the end of that season, she and her team got first place champs. Sohse said that what inspired her were the boys that were always balling on the streets. After watching them play, she decided to try it out herself. Being the little “tomboy” she was, she decided that the sport suited her. After being asked why she chose the sport, she answered with, “I chose this sport because it’s the most intense sport, in my opinion.” She also states that she chose it because it’s just her favorite sport.
Misty is a great basketballer, and she wishes to become something bigger than just a girl who plays on a school team one day.
