Elk Grove’s Grey Athlete of the Week

ELK GROVE (CBS13) — She’s the rally leader, two-sport athlete and excels in the classroom. Elk Grove High School’s Carlee Grey is the High School Kickback Athlete of the Week.

Grey plays basketball and softball in addition to her rally duties. She’s also taking two AP courses.

“It’s pretty much time management,” she told CBS13’s Julissa Ortiz. “I’ve learned being an athlete and scholar-athlete, what I need to do and when.”

Her hard work has paid off. Carlee just committed to a full-ride scholarship to George Washington University in the nation’s capital to play softball.

“I’m planning on studying electrical engineering, then law school,” she said.

Carlee credits her mom for her success — and her clean laundry.

“I have to admit she still gets my uniforms ready,” Carlee said. “She checks up on me, makes sure I’m doing what I need to do.”
