Fresh off of the pitcher's mound from a historic 20-0 state title win, Polytech's Shaina Reed is this week's WDEL High School Athlete of the Week.

After making an appearance in the state tournament for the last four years, all the hard work paid off with an epic ending.

"The last four years, we made it to all the state tournament games. So being able to come out this last season and we wanted this really bad, we wanted this for four years. Being on this team is amazing and all the girls are great and I'm so excited to see what they do."

Head Coach Jenn Bradshaw hopes that younger players learn from Reed's positive attitude.

"She is probably one of the most positive and focused players that I have coached. There is nothing that gets her down. And if every player can have that mentality when they play the game, they will be successful."

Reed's advice to her younger self,

"Be confident. Trust your defense."

Best of luck to Shaina as she embarks on the next chapter in her life.
