The Woodlands' Kassidy Cook Has a Legit Shot at Reaching the London Games
HOUSTON: Welcome to the May installment of VYPE Magazine. As school is wrapping up, we take a look back at the athletic school year that was and what to look for in the future. VYPE's cover story features one of the most interesting high school athletes in the city.
Some may think that The Woodlands' Kassidy Cook is overcooked with the exposure she has generated for her diving exploits. But her story is remarkable. Not often to do you see a prodigy, especially on a local level. The Highlander junior is competing for a coveted spot on the U.S. Olympic Dive team, which will compete in the London Games this summer. She not only wants to make the team, but win gold in the Olympics.
VYPE takes a look at the 212 athletes for 2012 in The Lists. It was another banner year in Houston high school sports as the city filled its trophy case with a Class 5A state football championship, a girls' and boys' golf title, swimming and diving gold and several private school team championships. Dozens of tremendous individual performances were also turned in garnering rings, medals, personal bests and other accolades. What better way to log all the best from the high school year that was then to name the 212 athletes for 2012.
Soccer wrapped up last month as the Morton Ranch boys' and the Seven Lakes girls' soccer teams made an unprecedented march to the state tournament in April. The first time in their respective school histories. Both came up empty-handed but the experience will last a life time. It has also put the Katy Independent School District on the map as a hot-bed for soccer talent.
Finally we take a look at the Run to Round Top. For high school students, the month of May is full of non-stop activities. From prom, final exams and graduation, there is another constant in baseball. This spring, the sandlots across the city of Houston have produced not only elite individual talent, but elite teams on the national stage. All have the same goal in mind, reaching the state tournament in Round Rock Texas.
