Athletes of the Week

We have two Athletes of the Week.  First up is varsity cross country runner and freshman Alyson Ray.   Aly has been an important runner in the successes of the varsity cross country team this season.  According to Head Varsity Cross Country Coach Brannon Wurster: “Aly truly represents the virtue of diligence.  Over the last few weeks, Aly has been diligent in finding her place as the number three runner and by doing so she has also helped her teammates to push harder and stay encouraged. ”

Next up is equestrian team senior Alexis Begley.  Alexis is four year member of the NDA equestrian team and an OIHA Team Sportsmanship winner in 2015 & 2016.  She was the Team High Points earner in 2015 & 2016, consistently placing top five in all judged events and never missed a show.  According to Equestrian Coach Marie Arnold: “Alexis exemplifies the virtue of dedication as an equestrian every day. She is dedicated to her team, her education, and her career as an equestrian. Alexis never leaves a teammate behind and she is always ready to compete, practice, and grow as an equestrian.   Alexis set her education and equestrian career goals as a sophomore team member.  Without missing a beat, Alexis continues to work toward those goals as a committed teammate, a dedicated horsewomen, and a women of vision.”

Congratulations to Alyson Ray and Alexis Begley, this week’s Athletes of the Week!
