Although most, if not all, graduation commencement ceremonies have been completed, the O-N-E is still continuing its ‘Senior Focus’ series.

The student-athletes involved were given a ‘Senior Night’ type questionnaire to answer, and these are their responses.

If you want your athlete to be included in the series, contact us at onesports@observernewsonline.com.

We continue our series with Bunker Hill women’s soccer player Kimberly Navarro.

Navarro was a defender and a team captain for the Lady Bears’ varsity soccer team in 2020, only competing in two games.

2. What other clubs or organizations are you a member of at your respective high school?

3. Are you a member of any church or community groups?

- Yes, St. Aloysius Catholic Church.

4. List any outstanding achievements or awards you have received during your four years (athletically and/or academically)?

- I have been a part of the Varsity soccer (team) for three years. I am senior class Vice President, Beta club historian, and previously held off as the international club secretary and Si se puede ambassador.

5. Who is your role model? Why?

6. What is your fondest memory about your experience of playing your respective spring sport?

7. What words of wisdom would you leave behind for the underclassmen?

- Keep working to be the best version of yourself. Both on and off the field. Live up to your potential and don’t let anything stop you from achieving greatness.
