Alena Miller, nominated by Sports Mama, Emily Miller, is our Athlete of the Day!

Tell us about Alena’s achievements:

Alena is a premier level soccer goalie who was catastrophically injured in the first game of her junior year HS season. From the day she was injured, she didn’t let it stop her from working towards becoming the best player she can be.

She went to every game and supported and encouraged her teammates all the while working hard in PT to recover and get back on the field. She communicated with her coaches and studied in her free time to learn the game from the perspective of a coach so she could better understand situations as they unfold on the field when she does return.

Tell us about a character trait Alena has that you admire:

Alena is determined. When she wants something, she works to make it happen.

Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know:

I am so proud of her grace and humility through her injury. She could’ve sat on the couch feeling sorry for herself but she picked herself up and helped her team and taught herself to look at the game from a new perspective.

Congratulations, Alena!
