Take your pick, Sallee delivers in three different sports

CLAYTON — Being exceptional at one sport is impressive. But how about three different sports?

For the past four years at Cascade High School, Brandyce Sallee has excelled in softball, basketball and volleyball.

Plenty of high school athletes play multiple sports, but few do so at such a consistently high level as Sallee.

She’s a two-time all-West Central Conference selection in volleyball and three-time all-county and all-WCC selection in both basketball and softball. Sallee will likely become a four-time all-county and all-conference player at the end of this softball season. The Butler University bound senior is the two-time team MVP and will continue to lead the Cadets in the final sports season of her high school career.

The middle child of three sisters, Sallee’s athleticism and path has been paved partially by her parents.

Both graduates of Cascade as well, Sallee’s dad Bryan played baseball and football and her mom Becky played the same three sports as Brandyce.

While some of her athleticism may have been passed down from the Sallee’s, Brandyce’s competitive fire pushes her.

“I hate losing at anything,” she said. “I get mad when I lose at putt-putt to tell you the truth.”

Cascade girls’ basketball and softball coach Don Helmick has coached Sallee since she was in first grade and definitely knows that competitive streak.

“I think if Brandyce was playing Candy Land with a 3-year-old, Brandyce would not want to lose,” Helmick said.

Sallee picked up basketball and softball in the beginning years of elementary school and much like she’s done in her high school career, she played bigger than her size. Brandyce would play youth basketball two grades up with her sister Brittany and also played baseball instead of softball at first.
