Athlete of the Week – Girls Swimming – Ariel Theriac, Sophomore
Ariel is a member of two record-breaking relays this season. She has worked extremely hard after being quarantined to become a key member in the success of the girls’ varsity team this season. Due to the complexities of swimmers coming and going from quarantine, Ariel was switched from her normal specialties to being a blistering fast sprinter and she adapted brilliantly. No other swimmer was required to entirely scrap their normal events and transition to a relay specialist. Ariel stepped up to the challenge and mastered her freestyle speed to swim personal best times every time she got up on the block. Ariel is only a Sophomore so she will only get faster.
Athlete of the Week – Girls Swimming– Isabelle Deverick, Junior (Not Pictured)
Isabelle is the team’s consummate breaststroker and can always be counted on to dig deep and take the win in the 100 Breast. She is also instrumental to the winning streak of the 200 Medley Relay all season and the 200 Freestyle Relay. Isabelle is the most versatile swimmer on the team and has a strong mastery of all four competitive strokes and is a huge asset to the team. She can be placed in any event and will score points.
Athlete of the Week – Boys Swimming – Karl Russel, Freshman
Karl has been the go-to athlete all season when the team needs to fill any event. Having that swimmer that can be entered in any event and pull in points is a great asset for any team. Karl never fears competition either. No matter what stroke Karl is asked to swim or against who he simply focuses on the race and hand and gets the job done.
Athlete of the Week – Boys Basketball – Dane Stevenson, Senior
Dan scored a game high 19 points on 5-11 shooting. Dane was 7-7 from the free throw line. Dane also contributed 4 rebounds, 2 assist and 1 steal in the 67-52 win over Whiteland. Dane plays hard and competes at a high level in each and every game. He is a major contributor to the teams success.
