Zach Malis

Desert Christian High School

1A-3A Scholar Athlete Recipient

Athletically, Zach is one of the most gifted students to attend Desert Christian High School. Although his first love is baseball, where he will soon be living his dream of playing at the colligate level, he has also excelled on the basketball court. Zach has stepped up his leadership on campus this year and chose his EXPO project to be President of the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) club.

Zach has demonstrated his remarkable ability to lead others throughout his nearly four years at Desert Christian High School. Zach is a four year starter on the Varsity baseball team and a 3-year starter for the Varsity basketball team and holds many individual records in both sports. Not only is Zach recognized on the court and field but he has a very strong work ethic in the classroom. He is currently tied as number 1 in his class of 45 with a 4.0 GPA. While maintaining this GPS and class ranking he is also pursuing activities off the court and field. He has been involved in the National Honor Society and Vacation Bible School as well being a volunteer coach for Zona Volleyball Club.

Zach is truly respected by his peers and motivates them by his intensity, encouragement and high level of play. He has a sacrificial attitude and is willing to pour out his heart to achieve a goal.

Zach plans to attend Grand Canyon University to study Sports Management.
