D6 Athlete of the Week - Sophia Dhupar

D6 Athlete of the Week Logo

"Sophia Dhupar is an absolute rock star and makes Greeley West an amazing place. She is one of our National Honor Society officers, a standout in our orchestra program, and a dedicated IB Diploma Program. On our tennis team, Sophia is both a vocal leader, and leader by example. I have quickly realized the incredible dedication that Sophia has towards whatever she puts her mind to. Her attitude and leadership have been invaluable to our team's 8-1 start. On the court, Sophia is 10-1 this year, is undefeated in dual matches, and had a 4th place finish at the Greeley West Invitational. She has a real chance to make a name for herself at Greeley West at the regional and state tournaments. We are lucky to have her!" - Ryan Pace, Tennis Coach
