Middle School Athletes of the Month | December 2017

Congratulations to the following students who have been recognized as our Middle School Athletes of the Month for December:

 

Middle School Boys Basketball:

Ethan Hoke - Ethan has a great attitude each practice.  One of the best workers on the team.  Always pushes his teammates by encouraging them and demonstrating best effort.  Always positive and will give me thoughts and feedback on what we are working on.  He understands what it is to be a good friend to each team member.  He is an unselfish player.

 

Middle School Girls Soccer:
Abby Bennett- Abby is our team's goalie and the leader on defense.  She always has a great attitude and gives 100% while on the field.  She is good about taking the lead and making sure her teammates know what to do during practices and games.

 

Sydney Kuzmick- Sydney is an awesome soccer player who always leads by example during practices and games.  She is a tough and versatile player who is willing to take on and excel at any position on the field.

 

Middle School Boys Soccer:
David Holler- David is one of our Captains, anchoring our back line.  He is a great leader, always doing what is in the best interest of the team versus his own personal interest.  Through the first three games of the season we have given up only one goal, in large part due to David's play and leadership.

 

Zach Spooner- Zach is one of our Captains and plays the holding mid for the team.  He is a quiet leader, always working hard for his teammates and leading by example in spirit, play and attitude.  Zach has been a key contributor in our first three games, all wins, with two assists.
