Lucas McAlpine – “Lucas is a freshman who has really grown into being a leader among the younger runners. He has been running varsity and is making a difference in our top five guys. He is at practice each day with a positive attitude and is ready to put in the work it takes to be competitive. He is excited about his running career and has goals of running even faster times in the future.”

Gabriel Yanez-Michel – “Gabriel started this summer as a brand new runner and is making solid gains this season. Gabriel puts forth his best effort in whatever we are doing, whether it be our daily drills, core and band work or running a workout. He is a role model for anyone on our team and an excellent example of how consistent work pays off for anyone new to a sport.”

Wendy Wilson – “Wendy has been training with the team since summer and is consistently one of our top girls. She loves to run, comes to practice energetic and always wants to do more. She enjoys learning how to run a course and practices strategies such as sharp turns. She will be a key player for the girls team in our championship season this year.”

Girls Volleyball

Coach Yarborough shares the following about her student/athletes: For the JV athlete of the month –

Jane Taylor #19 “As a sophomore, Jane does an extraordinary job of juggling two AP courses and two honors courses, all while leading our JV team as co-captain and starting middle blocker. She makes the most of every moment on the court, leading by example with her coach-ability, determination, natural instinct, and inspiring work ethic. She is an insightful, humble, and compassionate person, who consistently supports and lifts up her teammates with her positivity. We are grateful to have her as a member of our program. She is beyond deserving of this honor.”

Megan Merson #11 – Frosh Athlete of the month – 

“Megan Merson is our freshman co- captain and has been a leader since the first day of practice. She sets the expectation and gives a great example to her teammates of working hard and taking ownership of her own positive attitude and her success.

Megan is an amazing athlete, a pleasure to work with and an asset to her team.”
