How you may know her: Reyes played for the George Washington Geckos basketball and volleyball teams during her freshman and sophomore years (1997-'98). She also played basketball and volleyball for St. Paul Christian School her junior and senior years, when the Warriors won the basketball titles. She also played basketball in the 2003 SPG in Fiji and plays for the SHANK! Women's volleyball team.

Q:What is your most memorable moment in sports?
A:South Pacific Games 2003 at Fiji, my first SPG. It was an experience. I got to play with a lot of talented ladies, it taught me a lot and I can't wait to go back and play again.


Q:Who is your all-time favorite coach?
A:Al Garrido. Because since the eighth grade, I'm still playing with the dude. Because when I met you, my parents were starting to go through divorce and other stuff, and you weren't just a coach, you were also like a father/big-brother figure for me. You were the big brother I never had.

Q:Who is your all-time favorite teammate?
A:I'm not going to pick just one person. The best teammates I've ever had on any team were the girls that didn't get a lot of playing time. They were the girls that needed help, they were the girls that coaches and star players might not depend on to take the last shot, because they don't trust in them. But for me, if it weren't for those girls and just the little things they did at the right time or even the mistakes that they did during the wrong times -- I honestly don't think I'd be the person I am now. They taught me how to play on a team. They taught me how to bring it down a notch, they kept me in check.

Q:Who is the opponent you respect the most?
A:In volleyball, it had to be Natasha Tenorio, because she used to rub it in my face all the time. She was a good player. For basketball it would be Jakysha Green from Notre Dame High School. She is one big mama! She knew how to use her body. She's a really good player, and even now she'll tell me straight to my face what I'm doing wrong.

Q:What do you like about sports and recreation on Guam?
A:I like the fact that basketball is starting a youth program. The youth league right now, I never had that when I was growing up. It was mostly: Get a bunch of girls together for a summer league, and that was it. Now they have the more-experienced SPG veterans taking their kids to practices and coaching them too.

Q:What do you dislike most about sports and recreation on Guam?
A:There isn't enough funding for everything. Right before SPG, Micro or Mini, we only start practices about six months before the games. I guess now that the development leagues are starting, that'll give them a track to see who is going to be interested in SPG and get them started earlier.

Q:What is your favorite meal after a hard workout?
A:Anything I don't have to cook. It depends -- if we win, anything expensive that I'm not paying for. If we lose, it doesn't really matter; I'll just stuff my face with something.

Wins for Royals and Cougars - 11 months ago
After losing three straight games, the Notre Dame Royals on Friday beat the St. John's Knights 38-29 in the Independent Interscholastic Athletic Association of Guam Girls Basketball League to get back on the right track. Tied 20-20 at the half, then only up 28-27 after the third quarter, it was a last-minute momentum push in the final quarter that gave the Royals the victory. An aggressive defense was key, holding the Knights to only two points, while the Royals scored 10   [read more]
