Featured Athlete of the Week

Featured Athletes: Darian Smith (Dive) and Charlotte Gaudet (Swim)

Congratulations to our next two featured athletes: 

 

Darian Smith joined diving her senior year and wasted no time! Constantly eager to try new dives, Darian built up her list to the difficulty necessary to qualify for state. She didn't let a few smacks get in her way of learning a front double or other complex dives, and the tenacity paid off.  In just one season, Darian came within 4 points of the State qualifying score of 290 on 11 dives. She also finished 6th overall in the Tri-Peaks league. Well done Darian!

 

Charlotte Gaudet is merely a sophomore and is already breaking ground as one of our fastest sprinters. In the span of just 3 months, she has dropped significant time in the 50 freestyle going from a 28 to a 27.78 to finishing the season with a 26.90. She is an integral part of the 200 freestyle relay and helped her team go from 12th (1:47.89) place to 11th place (1:45.65) beating two teams in the finals heat at States. Over the season, Charlotte has grown not only in the pool, but outside of the pool as well. She is supportive and helpful to her teammates and has proven to show how much of a positive influence she is on the team. Great job Charlotte!


 

Featured Athlete: Maggie Gesler (JV Basketball)

Congratulations to our next featured athlete: Maggie Gesler. Maggie does it all for the JV Basketball team. She brings energy and enthusiasm to every practice, no matter the time. She stays late each day and she cheers loudly and enthusiastically for all her teammates. She guards the opposing teams' fastest players and best ball handlers and successfully shuts them down. She scores both by fearlessly attacking the basket and by being a sharpshooter from the outside. Passionate and competitive, she hates to lose, but is gracious in defeat. Most importantly, she is a positive, encouraging, and inspiring presence on and off of the court. Well done Maggie!

Featured Athlete: Maddie Jones (Basketball)

Congratulations to our next featured athlete of the week: Maddie Jones. Maddie is in her first full year at the varsity level in basketball. Whether it is a practice or a game, Maddie arrives each day ready to work and give her very best. She is the athlete that everyone wants as a teammate and every coach wants on their team. Maddie’s entire focus is on what is best for the team, and she takes incredible pride in seeing her team succeed. In basketball, Maddie is a rebounder, a passer and the one you can count on to always be in the right place at the right time. She anticipates offensive rebounds as well as anyone on the team, and has worked hard to improve her overall basketball skills. Maddie has a very bright future ahead of her on the basketball court, and she certainly has the desire and determination to get the most out of her tremendous potential.

Featured Athlete: Mia Gathright (Dance)

Congratulations to our next featured athlete, dancer, Mia Gathright. Mia is highly motivated, enthusiastic, friendly, supportive and a true team player. She truly cares about her peers and always works hard to perfect her choreography with a smile and a great attitude! She has improved rapidly since the beginning of the season and we look forward to seeing her continue to grow throughout the season. Well done Mia!

Featured Athlete: Amanda Dewhurst (Diving)

Congratulations to our next featured athlete, diver, Amanda Dewhurst. In her second year on the dive team, Amanda attends each practice with a positive and fun attitude.  Constantly striving for improvement, Amanda does not let fear or failure deter her from getting to the final end goal. In her first year she learned eleven dives to be able to compete at league, which is no small feat. While also adding new and more difficult ones to her list this year, her dives continue to improve- many getting scores upwards of six at the latest meet. Well done Amanda!
