Preston High School’s Regan Hyde has been awarded a double sports scholarship at Treasure Valley Community College in Ontario, Ore., and will play soccer and softball
Recently, senior traveled to TVCC, for a second time to meet with the soccer coach to practice with and ultimately sign a full ride scholarship to play soccer and softball for the Chukars.
A month prior, Hyde had already visited the campus to be recruited by the softball coach, but unfortunately the soccer coach was out of town recruiting athletes in the Portland area.
Hyde comments, “It has always been my dream to play soccer at a college level, but never did I imagine being asked to play softball, too. It has been a real honor.”
Hyde was first recognized by the NWWAC softball coach after participating in the Invitational NW Fast Pitch Tournament last summer in Centrailia, Wash. She was ranked and awarded fourth of the top five out of 500 other girls for her skills and strength. She was also awarded a $500 SPARQ essay scholarship that was part of the program, too.
Honor-student Hyde currently has an accumulative 3.8 GPA and hopes to receive a few academic scholarships by graduation. Besides school and extra-curricular activities, Hyde has also managed to hold down one-to-two, part-time jobs throughout high school to prepare for this moment.
Hyde is the daughter of Mike Hyde and Corene and Wendell Crane. She would like to take this opportunity to thank her family, teachers, peers, and coaches (especially to Ashley Larsen for all the countless hours she contributed in pushing her and making her believe in herself) who have helped make this childhood dream a reality.
