Port Isabel High’s Alexandria Martinez was named the Sub-6A Female Athlete of the Year at the All-Valley Sports Awards Banquet Tuesday night in McAllen.
Martinez, a 2016 graduate of Port Isabel High, was a top contributor in every sport she tried as a Lady Tarpon. She was a four-year Varsity member of the volleyball, softball, and basketball teams, and was a pole vaulter for the track team.
“I was very nervous,” Martinez told the Press Wednesday in describing the feeling as she waited for the announcement of the winner of the award. “I was shaking!”
