Martha is a 9th grader at Monarch School. Monarch is a K-12 school that caters to at-risk and homeless youth in San Diego.
As a freshman, she led a 6 player roster to Monarch’s first playoff appearance and victory in school history. These 6 athletes, 4 of which are active Exodus members, also won League Co-Champs. Martha led her league in kills, earned a spot in 1st team all-league, and was nominated for player of the year.
Martha has been an Exodus athlete for the last 3 years. She started her journey with us as a 7th grader where she also helped bring Monarch’s first middle school championship. In her time with us, she has been able to train and participate with local and travel teams.
Martha received sponsorship from one of our founding members and has benefited from athletic clothes and shoe donations. We want to take this time and personally thank the Gomez Family. Ruth and her family have supported Martha throughout the seasons in the form of sponsorship and helping with transportation, clothes, and housing during tournaments. We are very proud to have you guys as members of this organization. Thank you for all the selfless acts.
We currently have 13 active players in our rosters ranging from 5th grade to high school. These athletes all come from similar socioeconomic backgrounds. Help is welcome in any form and at any time. If you would like to know how to get involved and Play it Forward, do not hesitate to contact us.
