Athlete of the Week – Girls Varsity Swimming – Jayla Smith, Sophomore
Jayla has shown great drive and initiative since the beginning of the season. She made a goal of being the fastest butterfly swimmer on the team and has steadily progressed. Jayla earned the chance to swim the fly leg in the 200 Medley Relay at the Mid State Conference and swam a personal best to help the team break the high school record. In the following meet vs Plainfield Jayla dropped 3 more seconds on her 50 butterfly leg. Her continued dedication and discipline is a credit to herself and the rest of the team. Jayla is only a sophomore and has plenty of room to grow.

Athlete of the Week – Boys Varsity Swimming – Devon Theriac, Junior
Devon has proved to be the consummate student of his sport. He never misses a practice and is the first one at the pool and the last one to leave while always working hard each day to improve his technique and abilities. He is one of the highest point earners on the team. Any event in which he enters is guaranteed points for the team. Devon takes time to work with the underclassmen to motivate them and work on their stroke. His work ethic already has his name on the record board and his name will be up there a few more times before this season ends.
