Meet Dominion’s Camryn Shulsinger

If there’s anyone who’s earned a summer break, it’s Camryn Shulsinger.

During her time at Dominion, she played volleyball, basketball and softball, and took part in DECA and student council. She balanced all of this, plus a job, volunteer work and the typical high school course load. The intensity of all she’d taken on came to a head her junior year.

“Softball season my junior year, I had such a large workload, so much stress, so much going on,” she said. “I think it was our last game before playoffs, so it was a game that mattered. I screwed up the last play and I completely broke down. But it wasn’t just that play, it was all the things that were going on junior year.”

Despite the challenges, Camryn maintained a high GPA, kept her teammates laughing and was selected for the All-Conference softball team.

“I didn’t pitch for softball freshman and sophomore year, so it was kind of crazy getting All-Conference my first year pitching for high school,” she said.

Camryn doesn’t plan on playing softball in college, but does want to stay active. She loves all things fitness and would be interested in working as a personal trainer in the fall when she gets to school.

Camryn will attend the University of South Carolina to study international business and risk management. But, with one caveat.

“I love sushi,” she said with a smile. “If South Carolina doesn’t have a good sushi bar, I may transfer.”
