The Tiger Queen, Mika Vento


DHR Health Athlete of the Week - Mercedes Tiger Mika Vento

You may have a hard time finding something Mercedes Star Athlete Mika Vento hasn’t participated in.

Basketball. Softball. Volleyball. Track and Field. Cheerleading.

The list continues…

National Honors Society. Hidalgo County Cotillion Club. Health Ambassadors. 4-H club.

Vento transcends sports. She takes the true meaning of student-athlete to the highest level, exemplifying what hard work and determination truly look like in the process.

Vento’s work has earned her countless accolades along the way, including the chance to graduate as the fourth-ranked academic senior in her class.

Despite all the organizations and sports Vento participated in, her heart has always been on the diamond.

With softball at the forefront, the Tiger phenom has decided to pursue an opportunity to play softball at Sam Houston St. University, an NCAA division-one program, once she leaves Mercedes.

For this week, however, Vento shines as our DHR Health Athlete of the Week.
