Izzy Ordorica has a catalog of hits from her four years as a starting outfielder on Chamberlain's softball team.
There were hard line drives that fell into gaps for doubles and mighty blasts that sailed over fences for homers. All came via meticulous preparation as a student of the game.
But even the stats she racked up on the field — from her .442 batting average to her perfect fielding percentage — do not compare to the ones she compiled in the classroom.
Ordorica, the Tampa Bay Times' Girls Scholar-Athlete of the Year, hit the books with just as much determination as she did a softball. She finished her high school career with a 4.0 grade point average (6.8 weighted). In fact, she has earned A's for her entire life.
"I think the lowest grade I might have had is an A-minus all the way through elementary school," she said.
Ordorica did this while taking 13 advanced placement classes as well as numerous dual-enrollment and honors courses.
"There is a lot of preparation that goes into being both a good student and softball player," she said. "You have to put in the work and a lot of studying with each one. Both are rewarding."
Most weeknights, Ordorica went to a three-hour softball practice then did homework until well past midnight.
The work paid off this year with Ordorica being named a captain of the softball team and helping the Chiefs reach the state semifinals for the first time in her career. She also finished fourth in her class academically and graduated from the school's Advanced Placement Honors Program.
As far as college, Ordorica wanted to go to a school that was not only competitive in softball, but had outstanding academics. She decided on UCLA, where she will major in pre-medicine and play for the 11-time national champion Bruins.
"UCLA had the best fit with everything," Ordorica said.
"I want to become a cardiologist, and I get to play for the all-time winningest college softball program."
Her strive for perfection — on the field and in the classroom — remains the same.
"I've had all A's so far," she said. "I'm not going to stop now."
