Congratulations to alum Surge soccer player, Baylee Endsley! She has signed a letter of intent to play at University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Hays CISD highlighted her accomplishments in the passage shown below:
"Hays High Lady Rebs Soccer Coach Brent Holcomb introduced and spoke from the heart about two of his soon-to-graduate stars--Baylee Endsley and Mariah Gonzales--in the team's second of three ceremonies celebrating the signing collegiate Letters of Intent. Baylee, the daughter of Chance and Jennifer Endsley, signed her letter to play for the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and Mariah, the daughter of Chris and Janet Gonzales, signed to play for Howard Payne University. Baylee will start school with an undeclared major. She has played defensive center back for the Rebs, originally having played club for the San Marcos Surge 98 (Division I) and now playing for Lions FC 99G (SCL, a select champions league team). Starting play as a 10-year old, she grew into a standout who, in addition to being Captain of San Marcos Surge 98, was a District Honorable Mention pick as a sophomore and a 2nd Team All-District as a junior, was twice Academic All-District, and has the most minutes played (for both club and high school) since her freshman year. Additional honors include twice being a State Champion and winning MVP of the Colorado Shootout. Mariah will study Childhood Education at HPU. She started playing soccer when she was six and, since then, played at Lonestar Soccer Club (coached by Ashley Schevers), played for the Olympic Development Program (ODP), 2012-2015, and played center mid and outside back for club soccer (winning a state title with her club soccer team in 2017). She plays now for TCL Comp in club soccer. As a sophomore she was 2nd Team All-District and, as a junior, she took District Honorable Mention and Academic All-District. CONGRATULATIONS to Baylee and Mariah, their families, and the entire HHS Soccer program!"
