Let us in on a secret
Louria is a ‘Techie who can talk’ who is majorly athletic. She played basketball, volleyball, softball and ran track from grade school until now. She was an all star throughout her high school career. Fun fact…She tried out for the boys baseball team when she was in the 5th grade and didn’t make it. She was the first girl ever to try out. She practiced with her Dad all year: they threw grounds and played catch in front of the house for hours. Louria didn’t give up and the next year she tried out again despite some people telling her that it was ‘for boys.’ Louria didn’t believe in such limitations. She made it onto the team that year over a boy. She still had a lot to learn, but one game she hit a triple and her whole team went crazy! The team included her and she had an amazing coach, Mr. Macy. Louria has been the first in many things because she feels a closed door is just waiting for her to open it.
