Kellogg has been playing basketball for as long as she can remember.
In basketball she plays all around, sometimes she plays as a guard and other times she plays as a post.
“As a senior in basketball I hope to win a state title with all the girls I’ve been playing with since 7th and 8th grade,” shared Kellogg. “I know that with great determination and selflessness no matter what gets thrown our way we can conquer anything with the Lord supporting us.”
“My favorite basketball memory is going up to the CSU camp riding up with Jenna and Taylor Knudson singing our hearts out,” exclaimed Kellogg.
Kellogg wants to give a shout out to her favorite basketball girls for the hilarious memories and unforgettable experiences.
Kellogg’s favorite sport is track. She has been participating in track and field since she was in the 7th grade.
In track, Kellogg runs the 300 meter hurdles, 400 meters races in relays, and 200 meter dashes.
“I set a lot of goals for myself throughout the season in track, that’s what I like the most about it because it’s individual so it’s all on you if you succeed or not,” said Kellogg. “The best part about track is the new challenges and setting personal goals, and the worst part about track can be the bad weather.”
“My favorite track memory is State Track sophomore year when we had a lip sync battle at the hotel,” exclaimed Kellogg.
“My biggest supporters are my parents and two brothers (even though Wade doesn’t always show it)” said Kellogg.
Outside of sports, Kellogg is the ideal student and maintains a 3.7 GPA. Her favorite subject in school is Anatomy. Her favorite foods are steak kabobs and pasta. She loves the television show Grey’s Anatomy and Friday Night Lights. She really enjoys the book The Haymeadow. Her favorite holiday is the 4th of July. Her favorite animals are goats and dogs.
Kellogg’s favorite high school memory is stealing Mr. Kelley’s parking spot Junior year.
After high school Kellogg plans to attend Northeastern Junior College and pursue a career in nursing.
“In ten years I hope I am done with school for good, with a stable career, with a family, and a hot husband!” exclaimed Kellogg. “My advice to underclassmen is to have fun in high school and get in a little trouble because it goes by too quick.”
