By Corey Heim

Alivia Galvan, a senior defender for the Duncan Lady Devils Varsity Soccer Team, has proven herself to be a remarkable and athlete and student at Duncan High School.

She began playing soccer when she was four years old due to her family’s passionate history with the sport. When she first tried it she fell in love with playing and has been stuck with it for the past fourteen years. She loves the competition of playing against other players in her district and credits her teammates for making her the player she is.

“My teammates are my closet friends,” Galvan said. “All the laughs to all the tears, every moment, especially during this past season, were fun. My team has been family and I’ll miss them.”

Galvan also credits her school and community as being a support network and encouragement for her both as an athlete and a student.

“I like that Duncan High School is engaged with its sports and players,” Galvan said. “As a player it gives you a sense of comfort and makes you feel important, especially when representing your community.”

Galvan is actively involved in her school community and has made her mark as a leader and gifted student. She is a member of Multicultural Club, Principal’s Advisory Council, Gifted and Talented Program, Lucky Circle Club along with the Lady Devil’s Varsity Soccer Team. She is ranked first in her class un-weighted and has a 4.0 GPA.

After graduation, she plans on furthering her education at the University of Central Oklahoma where she will major in psychology. She hopes to one day have a career as a physical therapist.
