Wrapping Up Varsity Fall Sports

Its hard to be a student and an athlete at the same time, but here, students know how to get it done. The majority of students strive to be perfectionists on and off the field and school makes it that much more of a challenge. Its worrisome knowing that you have a truckload of homework and are currently at practice but students can handle it. Those students are the ones that succeed and there is proof of that when you look at team records.

Football has gone very well over the season with Varsity being 5-1 with their only loss to Madison and JV being 3-1. Sophomore JV Captain Zach Bowman speaks about his team and  himself, “We have been very successful in all the games we’ve played recently and will hopefully finish with the rest of our season with wins.” It’s hard being a captain, you have to bring leadership and skill to the field at all times. It’s a hard job, but Zach is up to the challenge. The hope for the boys is to finish the rest of the season with a successful and memorable win for every game.

Finishing out the swim season for girls will be a very easy one given that they are 4-0 and have taken home the MAC Silver League championship. Sophomore Captain Krista Nannini is very proud of her team, taking home the title and being unbeatable in their medley relay. “I’m really happy with the season, very successful. I’m currently swimming with the best girls on the team, bringing my breaststroke and leadership as a c

aptain.” The girls are striving to be better and prepare for the league meet on November 3rd and 4th. The girls swim team is going in with confidence and the time to beat.

A hard season for cross country is not stopping the team in any way, shape, or form. Coach Croci has prepared his guys and girls well for the season to keep his hopes up. “I want to see how we match up against other teams in our regional meet.” He wants to see the girls take home MAC and the boys finish top 10 in the county meet and have a couple become state qualifiers or all county. Everyone has done well and is working hard. The hopes of bringing home a title for themselves is within reach.

Boys soccer has gone well so far being 7-2-1 in the season. Beating the number one team in the league 2-1 was a memorable moment for the guys. With districts coming quickly, it will empower them to be their absolute best. Districts is going to be a highlight of the season, but all Coach Paul Voydanoff is asking for is his boys to give it their all just want them to play as good as they can.” What they do individually matters the most, not the mistakes or the problems with the game, they just need to bring it.

The girls on the volleyball team have been working hard and they’re successes have shown through there many games and War of the Shores. Districts are close to arriving on the 29th of October which means more preparation for the girls. When speaking about the records, Coach Rogers doesn’t give up the information, she believes that its about the girls and the records don’t show it so there is no need to worry about them. “A memorable moment for me was watching the girls start to trust each other in the games.” says Rogers. They have been successful individually and will hopefully continue to do so, all the way to districts.

Wrapping up the sports seasons gives the students and coaches time to reflect on the individual successes and memorable moments of the season. That is when there is a sense of pride and proudness, and playing sports is there time to shine. The hope is to wrap up sports with a successful end to every season.
