LDS High School Senior Excels in Three Sports

PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- Kim Eastin, a senior at Sunnyslope, plays incredible defense in three sports. During the final soccer game of the season, she stopped 21 shots in the second round 4A playoff game. She was voted the Skyline's Defensive Player of the Year in volleyball. And now she's gearing up for the softball season.

Even though Eastin is considered one of the state's top soccer goalkeepers, volleyball is her favorite. She is active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and would like to play at a Mormon school. Upper Iowa, Phoenix College, and Utah Valley State have expressed interest in having her play.

"She can play any position," Sunnyslope volleyball coach Angela Gross said. "She's very versatile, and she's very consistent with her play. We knew exactly what to expect when she stepped on the court. She's not afraid to hit the floor, so if anyone's going to get it, she will. And the whole time she plays, she talks. She has lots of self-sacrifice, doesn't have to be the star. Sometimes that's hard to find."
