On November 12, National Letter of Intent Signing Day, senior Haley De Sales of La Salle High School in Pasadena, signed her Letter of Intent to attend Washington State University on an athletic Scholarship for Volleyball.

Haley’s Volleyball Accolades include:

First Team All-League (3 years), First Team All CIF Division 1A (3 years); Max Preps first team All-State; San Gabriel Valley Newspapers’ All-Area First Team.

In addition, she was a key member of the school’s first and second CIF Volleyball titles in Division IA, and even more outstanding, she was back-to-back CIF Player of the year in Division I.

In addition to her athletic success, she maintains a GPA above 3.7.

The La Salle athletics program emphasizes commitment, discipline, and character. However, the academic program is our priority with athletics serving as a valuable companion. These two, coupled with the school’s Lasallian values, help develop the complete Lancer student-athlete.

Many high school athletes dream of becoming an Olympian or professional athlete and parents dream of their child earning a college athletic scholarship, but unfortunately, this is a difficult and often unrealistic goal.

Statistics show that just one out of every 1000 high school athletes will receive a Division I scholarship and only two of 100 high school athletes will play in college.
