Spartan Shield

Ellie Scranton
Ellie Scranton or as many people would call her El, El Bel, Scrat, and Scantron, is a senior at Pleasant Valley and is an incredible athlete. She showcased her talent for the past four years by receiving multiple honors such as a first team all-state, all-conference, and all-metro awards in soccer. Scranton is also an important factor on the girls basketball team. She is one of the three senior captains that provides grit, determination, and confidence to the team. Outside of school and sports, Scranton loves to spend time with her friends, binge watch NCIS and friends on Netflix, and cuddle with her dog, lulu. Some fun facts about Scranton is that her favorite color is sky blue, one of her biggest pet peeves is the sound of fingernails rubbing on paper, and her favorite place she has visited was Jamaica during spring break. She admires her grandpa for many reasons. “He shows a lot of love for everyone and works really hard for everything,'' said Scranton. After high school she plans to attend the University of Arizona and major in Nursing.
