CONCORD, CA (Oct. 22, 2023) — Ashytn Hosler has her eye on the target in every sport she tees up while managing a complicated student athlete balance. The Clayton Valley Charter High senior juggles golf, three shooting disciplines and academics so well that she will have 13 varsity letters by the time she graduates next spring.
Influenced by experiences in several sports as a kid, Hosler has excelled on the CVCHS girl’s golf team during her four years on varsity. As a junior she scored the most points for her team, earning the MVP award. She has been all-Diablo Athletic League the past two years and has made it through North Coast Section competition both years. One of her proudest moments was her NCS junior year performance where she broke 100 on an 18-hole course.
In addition to golf, Hosler plays three shooting sports for the Ugly Eagles: trap, sporting clays and skeet. She has also been a team captain on all her CVCHS teams. Outside of school, she competes on the Fat Shafts Archery team and she is currently ranked second in the state in her compound archery discipline.
Academics are important to Hosler as well. Her golf coach and father Jon Hosler says about her dedication, “Ashtyn leads by example and is a great teammate. Most importantly, she embodies what it means to be a student athlete, regularly having one of the highest GPA’s among her teammates.”
She has shown her commitment to education with a 4.40 GPA and participation in the Medical Careers Academy at the charter school. Hosler hopes to pursue a career as a pediatric nurse specializing in endocrinology, after obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
