Soccer player Bella Amyx is currently being recruited by University of Pacific, Sonoma State and Portland State. Amyx started playing soccer at the age of six and has been playing at Tam since she was a freshmen. Her goal when she started high school has always been to play three sports all four years.

Now in her second year playing for varsity, she can’t imagine playing on any other team. “We play so well together,” Amyx said. “Every moment with them is so fun. I’ve been playing with the same girls for seven years and they are basically family.” Amyx scored almost half the goals for the team and helped them win both the Marin County Athletic League and North Coast Section titles against rival Marin Catholic.

Amyx is also on the varsity cross country team and has been running the annual Dipsea Race since third grade. In the spring, she plays for both Tam soccer and Marin Football Club and trains with her mom for the Dipsea on weekends.
Amyx hopes to follow in her mom’s footsteps. “My mom is an amazing athlete,” Amyx said “She’s been so successful in what she does.” Bella’s mom was born in Mexico and came to American speaking very little English. She is now an ultra-runner, running races of up to 100 miles. Amyx has been involved with running for as long as she can remember and in 2013 was first in her league for cross country.
