Athlete of the Week – Girls Diving – Kayla Gott, Junior
Kayla has been steadily improving all season. At Mid-State she scored a personal best and won a strong 2nd place. At the Mooresville Dive Invitational, Kayla stepped up to the challenge and was the Individual Champion as well as winning the Best Dive Award for scoring the highest point total on one of her dives. Her outstanding performance along with another great performance by her teammate gave them a combined point total high enough to defeat 9 other teams so Mooresville could be able to win the Team Championship.
Athlete of the Week – Girls Basketball – Abby Young, Junior (not pictured)
Junior Abby Young has had the challenging assignment of guarding the other team’s best players for all of our games this season. With the Varsity team’s strength of schedule (SOS) rated as the 14th toughest in the state, Abby hasn’t had many nights off on the defensive end. This past Tuesday night, Abby played one of her best defensive games of the season when Abby held a 20 PPG player to only 6 points for the game in a 87-25 win over Terre Haute South. Abby leads the team in steals (2.4 per game) and is averaging 5 rebounds per game to go along with her 6.6 points per game. Abby has been an excellent team leader for the Lady Pioneers.
Athlete of the Week – Boys Swimming – Evan Wilson, Junior
Evan brought home the most points for the Mid-State Conference in two of the most competitive events. He was also a key member of the 200 Freestyle Relay team that set a new Mooresville High School record. Evan is also integral to the 200 Medley Relay that is only 1 second from breaking that record. In a standard dual meet, Evan can be counted on to take 1st place in any of his individual events and anchor the relays with confidence.
