Jasmine Torres (also known as “Bambi”) is the captain for Girl’s Basketball, going into her fourth year on the team.

What she enjoys most about basketball is the bonding between the players, the adrenaline when she steps on the court, and most of all the game itself. She practices for three hours all week on Saturday mornings.

To her, the most difficult aspect about basketball is the pressure, and as varsity captain she has a big responsibility of setting an example for not only for her team, but for the junior varsity team as well.

Many ask how she manages to balance senior year, college applications, and basketball all at the same time. “It is difficult,” she replied, “but it’s all about managing your time and making sure that everything is well organized.”

She describes herself as very outgoing, goofy, strong, and willing. Others like friends, peers, and teammates have described her as a down-to-earth, humble person with no ill will towards anyone, who is very comprehensive and understanding and respectful towards others. Paulina, a close friend of hers, can only agree that Jasmine is indeed amazing.

In her spare time she plays with her two dogs, spends time with her family, and takes part in her youth and government club. Her hobbies include drawing and playing video games. She has big plans for her future and hopes one day to give back to the community that she loves so deeply.
