" I like math and science, not english and history but I'm decent at them"

Decent is a bit of an understatement. Kelsey Ruffo is an "A" student. Her preference for the world of math and science may just be a reflection of her work ethic, both in the classroom and on the court.

" It's the amount of effort you put into it at practice will effect my playing time and how well I do in games. Here if I'm studying I will do ok. Like now I have to come in for help because it's hard, so hopefully I should do well with the help."
Even going the extra mile in her studies leaves Kelsey time for a little fun, regardless of which sports season she might be in.
" I'm just very sports oriented, I love sports, any kind. I love watching football games, basketball games, anything. "
We wanted some other interesting little tid-bit that might set her apart...."I don't know"...but her overall resume does that for her. Kelsey Ruffo leads by example on and off the court, and the numbers add up to her being this week's academic all star.
