Multiple Teams · Committed to Excellence — Connecting with Emmalyn Geers


Today we are going to check-in with sophomore Emmalyn Geers who played a key role for our varsity girls basketball team throughout the 2019-2020 season.   Her first season on the varsity team, Geers quickly made an impact for Kent City especially with her work on the boards.   Geers was second on the team in rebounds, averaging 4.4 rebounds per game.   In the fall, Geers starred for most of the season on the junior varsity volleyball team, before being called up for the post season where she helped lead the Eagles to a District finals appearance against conference arch-nemesis Morley Stanwood.

1. How have you kept yourself busy?
I have been hanging out with family in Florida.

2. What do your at home workouts look like?
Typically, I run on the elliptical or outside.  I also shoot in my driveway and play volleyball with my siblings.
 3. What do you miss most about school?  Why? 
I miss hanging out with my friends and seeing them everyday.
4. What book are you reading?   Would you recommend it to a friend?  Why or Why not?   
I am reading the The Escape by  David Baldacci, and I definitely would recommend it. It is a good book because it is full of suspense. You never know what is going to happen next!
5. Who in Kent City has made a positive impact on your life?   What have they done for you?  
So many people have had a positive impact on my life.   Specifically, my parents have shaped me into the person I am today.   Also, my coaches have influenced me a ton!
6. What is something you will never forget about the 2019-2020 basketball season? 
I will never forget how close we were during this season. Our team chemistry was amazing! We treated each other like family, and I was so lucky to have them all as teammates!
We are encouraging all student-athletes to remain active during this time of social distancing due to the coronavirus.   A valuable resources for all Kent City students is our online strength and conditioning program, PLT4M.   PLT4M has created a Remote Fitness workout that can be done at home without any equipment.   Many of our student-athletes are already on PLT4M and simply need to log in.  If you are not on PLT4M, contact Coach Gropp at zach.gropp@kentcityschools.org and he will get you up and running — literally.
