White Cloud senior signs letter of intent
Maya Reeve started tossing the shot put around the time she started middle school according to her Coach (and Dad) Tod Reeve.
“She was doing pretty good with it and then I put a discus in her hand and she threw it like she’d been doing it for years. As if it came to her naturally.”
Naturally enough to place first in the past two conference finals and move past regionals to post a pair of top ten finishes at the State Tourney.in two divisions.
And she still has one more year hurling the discus and tossing the shot for the White Cloud track team.
On Friday November 22 Maya Reeve prepared for her next level of competition by signing a letter of intent to bring her skills to the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville.
As a member of the Screaming Eagles track team Maya will be adding the hammer throw and javelin to her repertoire and compete during both the indoor and outdoor seasons.
With her eye on a degree in Sports Management the White Cloud senior and her family visited several schools before landing on USI.
“I love sports and they had the curriculum I wanted. When we walked around the campus it just seemed to be a good fit for me.”
Maya laughed and joked around as she posed with friends, family, teammates, coaches and school staff members who had gathered for the signing, then patiently answered questions from the media.
A true competitor she sets her goals high and strives to achieve them.
We asked what she did for fun in her spare time.
“I love to workout,” she said without a second thought. “That’s what’s really fun to me.”
Her Dad/Coach Tod agreed.
“She really does love it” he said with a look betraying a strong sense of pride.
”Maya is very determined and always working to be better.”
For now her sights are set on her senior year, another successful track season and, of course, graduation.
Then it’s on to a new aerie at the southern tip of Indiana just across the Ohio River from Kentucky.
And the start of her career as a Screaming Eagle.
