Classroom Champions: Troy's Savannah Sebek

TROY, Texas (KWTX) Savannah Sebek reached a high point in her young athletic career last year as a junior when the Troy volleyball team reached the state tournament.

"Definitely the best feeling because one of my lifelong dreams was to make it to the state tournament and I never thought it would happen but it actually did," Sebek said.

But for as much success as Savannah has had on the court, she has found even more success in the classroom, ranking second in her class at Troy and maintaining a 4.0 GPA.

"I see her all the time helping other kids with their work," Troy head coach Rachel Melancon said. "I see her constantly doing classwork. So she stays on top of it, knowing that she's super busy with what we do. Super active in sports other than volleyball but she also stays on top of her classwork."

That willingness to help others must have made an impact on her classmates as Savannah was recently named homecoming queen, something that came as a total surprise to her.

"I did not expect to be nominated because I moved here my sophomore year actually and so I was a new face to everyone and yeah I was most definitely not expected to win," Sebek said.

But with all that Savannah has accomplished in her short time at Troy high school, she still feels like she can do more. Hopefully leaving a lasting legacy at the school and in the athletic program.
