Next up is varsity volleyball player and senior Justice Wingate.  Justice Wingate is a Middle Hitter for our varsity volleyball team and she is one of the team captains.  Justice currently leads the team with a hitting percentage of .356 and kill percentage of 47.   According to Head Varsity Volleyball Coach Jeff Pitzen: “Justice is a fantastic young lady, she has worked very hard to improve at her position over the last 3 years.  Justice emulates the virtue of dedication.  Justice is coachable, dedicated to the success of the team and the program, and a great role model for the younger girls in the program.”

Congratulations to Kaitlyn Marshall and Justice Wingate, this week’s Athletes of the Week!

According to Head JV Golf Coach Cody Morse:  “Alex’s virtue of Sportsmanship is always on point.  She is always encouraging to her teammates as well as her opponents. Alex doesn’t over-react when she hits a poor shot and she is encouraging to other players.  I am proud to be Alex’s coach and I look forward to watching her grow both as a player and as a young lady.”

Next up is freshman volleyball player Morgan Lake.  Morgan is a defensive specialist for the Freshman Volleyball team.

According to Head Freshman Volleyball Coach Allison Rossler: “Morgan willingly jumped in and filled the Libero role when our team suffered an injury. Morgan emulates the virtue Adaptability because of her work ethic and team first spirit.  She is truly a team player and we are glad to have her on our team.”

Congratulations to Alexandra Simpson and Morgan Lake, this week’s Athletes of the Week!

Athletes of the Week

First up is JV volleyball player and sophomore Megan Ohlinger.  Meghan is a hard worker and team-focused volleyball player.  According to Head JV Volleyball Coach Matt Trzcinski: “Megan is a talented athlete and an even better young lady.  She is constantly working to improve her own skills and continuously pushes her teammates to work hard, too. Megan embodies the virtue of teamwork because, whether she is on the court or on the bench waiting to play, she is one that we can count on to be cheering the loudest for her teammates.”

Next up is cross country runner and senior Lauren Myers.  In her first two meets, Lauren has dropped about a minute of time compared to the same meets last year.   According to Head Cross Country Coach Brannon Wurster: “The hard work that Lauren has shown over the last month through the pain of a workout or the feeling of disappointment for not hitting a goal, she has embodied the virtue of persistence in staying focused and improving each and every day.”

Congratulations to Meghan Ohlinger and Lauren Myers, this week’s Athletes of the Week!
