The Academy of Our Lady of Guam's sports program will be going up another notch next year with the addition of star athlete Jyvina Pangelinan.
Pangelinan is currently an eighth-grader at Untalan Middle School, where she is the center for the Gold Wildcats girls' basketball A-team.
Pangelinan decided that Academy was where she wanted to go because of its success in sports.
"I just love their sports teams over there. They're always successful, and they've gone to many Far East tournaments for volleyball and basketball," she said.
Pangelinan stands 5 feet 9 inches tall, so her stature on the court may seem intimidating, but outside of sports she's just your normal soft-spoken teenage girl.
And although Pangelinan loves sports overall, she loves basketball the most.
"In the beginning, I really didn't like it, but I had friends that convinced me to play, and as I got better at it, I started to like the sport and now I join outside leagues and I play for the Crusaders," she said.
"It was my friends that got me into playing sports. My first sport I joined was soccer, and right after that, I fell in love with everything else," she said. "In sixth grade I couldn't even serve the ball over the net in volleyball, not even underhand. It's true that a perfect practice makes you better. I've gotten a lot better since sixth grade."
One day, Pangelinan hopes she can pursue her dream of playing in the WNBA.
"I want to go to college and finish that first and then really work hard in all my skills," she said.
