Hi, my name is Casey Adams and I am a senior at Clayton Valley Charter High School. I have a 4.5 GPA and was recently awarded with the UC ELC Honor Award. I am a member of the NSHSS-National Society of High School Scholars, just recently named State Finalist for the Wendys Heisman Athletic Award and proud that I am an Academic All American for the USA Water Polo Association. I have had straight A’s through all my school years and am determined to continue the straight A's in this my Senior Year. Academics are very important to me and I would like to go to a college with an outstanding academic reputation in the field of medicine.
I play water polo and soccer at Clayton Valley Charter High School, both at the Varsity level. I have just received my 7th Varsity Letter along with the Academic Scholar Athlete Letter that I proudly wear on my letter jacket. During the school athletic seasons I also keep myself busy with mountain hikes, and the gym. I have earned the position of captain back to back seasons now and was awarded Most Inspirational all 4 years in Water Polo and the last 2 years in Soccer. I’ve received many athletic awards but here are a few I am most proud of: First Team North Coast Section All East Bay 2 years now, North Team Senior All Star Team, Ranked 16th All East Bay North Bay, First Team All League DVAL 3 years, Team MVP back to back, Queen of All Stats back to back, and I broke the school record for most ejections drawn with 75 in one season, most goals, most assists, and am the 2nd highest stat holder in Clayton Valley Charter School Water Polo records history!
Characteristics that I pride myself on are that I am a team leader, a hard worker who is open to new ways to improve, and that I always have a positive attitude, both inside and outside the water.
Two years ago I went through a near death experience that greatly changed my view of life. Now that I am as healthy as can be I am ready to see my dream of playing college water polo come true.
