It is such a great honor to be recognized in the PIL Hall of Fame. As a child, I was so excited to finally be playing at Lincoln—a high school where family members, including my parents, have roamed the halls long before me.
Making or even swinging on to 3 varsity teams as a freshman was the number one goal I had and I am proud I was able to accomplish it. I spent lots of summers playing travel ball for softball and basketball so I never had time off or a vacation but I wouldn’t go back on any minute of it. Having all the different sport memories from my career, including 2 OSAA State Championships, made everything worth it.
For soccer I want to give thanks to LHS coaches Jody Lim, Brandon McNeil, and Michele Scifo. Jody, thanks for taking a risk on me my freshman year. I never played goalie before those tryouts, yet you saw my potential and trusted me. To Brandon and Michele, thanks for helping lead the team to back-to-back State titles.
For basketball, I want to thank Jeff Peeler. He was a huge part of my athletic career while in high school. Not only was he our athletic director but he also coached the women’s basketball team while I was there. He was a reliable adviser and mentor those four years and always seemed to help me if there was anything I needed.
For softball, I had various coaches growing up and in to my collegiate career that have all had their individual moments of shaping me to who I am. Each played an instrumental part and I am appreciative of you all. So thank you to Gary Hoops, Chris Gobel, Dale Jenkins, and Dervin Taylor.
I also want to thank my parents Andy and Marie Archambault. The sacrifices they made financially and the time they gave to help me get to where I wanted to be will never be able to be repaid. They took turns bouncing between their 3 children’s games and making sure at least one of them was in attendance every time. I never recognized it then, but it was such a luxury to have committed parents like that. I am forever grateful for the both of you.
As I reflect back on my high school and collegiate career, I cannot help but think that my accomplishments would not have happened without all of the people I mentioned above. I definitely would not be the woman I have grown into today and I am extremely grateful for the impact you all have made on my life in one way or another. Again, thank you PIL Hall of Fame for this tremendous honor—I do not take this lightly.
