Put Bailee Nickerson on the court and she can do just about anything. Same goes for the softball diamond. To be honest, I’m convinced she can perform well at just about any sport she plays.

Bailee made the all-state team in softball this past year and was a critical part to the success of the Pantherettes softball season. A season in which the team played in the state title game against LaGrange.

Although softball is her favorite sport, Bailee is focused on volleyball at the moment. Just as she was for the softball team, Nickerson is a vital part of the Pantherettes being 23-6 and ranked 18th in the state of Texas.

As a senior, Bailee is looked to as a leader on and off the court.

”When anyone is down, I pick them up no matter what. I just try to lead by example.” - Bailee Nickerson

Not only does Bailee play volleyball and softball, she’s a member of the varsity basketball team as well. If that’s not enough, she also plays travel softball, which is her true love.

”All I have to do is finish this year out then I get to go to college and start what I really want to do.” - Bailee

Her dream has always been to play college softball at the D1 level and she will get that chance starting next year. Bailee has committed to play at Wichita St. A catcher all through High School, Nickerson will be play outfield for the college.

Bailee was also chosen by her classmates to be a Homecoming Queen Nominee. Although she didn’t win Homecoming Queen, she was still honored to be chosen. Here’s a list of Bailee’s favorite things:

Food - Mexican
Restaurant - Chick-fil-a
Song - Send my Love to your New Lover
Color - Purple
Movie - Pitch Perfect
Book - Mockingbird
Subject in School - Math

Congratulations to Bailee Nickerson for being this week’s Guaranty Bank & Trust Athlete of the Week
