WATCH: Hallettsville rookie wins athlete of the week

Jansky went 1-3 with three RBIs and a walk

HALLETTSVILLE, Texas — Pepsi Crossroads Today Athlete of the Week is Hallettsville Lady Brahmas third baseman Carson Jansky.

Jansky helped the Lady Brahmas win their first state championship in school history. Jansky went 1-3 with three RBIs and a walk. She was named the state’s MVP and was shocked when she heard her name being called.

I really didn’t expect everything and I’m a freshman, Jansky said. Few freshmen get MVP, so that really meant a lot to me.

Jansky’s older sister, Macie Jansky, a second-year catcher for the Lady Brahmas, helped Carson in his success. Carson started playing softball at the age of five. She, too, played catcher, but after a meniscus tear, she moved to first base. When Carson got to Hallettsville, the first base spot was taken, so they moved her to third. Her first year as a third and she is already doing great things.

I really set the bar high in my freshman year, Jansky said. My sophomore year, looking to have an even better year, although I had a great year this year.

Jansky loves to cook and her favorite subject in school is Human Services Principles where she learns to cook. She likes to make crayfish stew or jambalya. Another Lady Brahma says her favorite food is a potato. One of his favorite songs is “Something in the orange” by Zac Bryan.
