Athletes of the Month: April
Every month the athletic department will recognize 1 boy and 1 girl from both the High School and 1 Athlete per sport, per month at the Middle School campus for outstanding athletic achievement. These candidates are nominated by coaches and voted on by the athletics staff.
Tyler plays great defense for the Lions in centerfield. He has great baseball instincts and is committed to improving and being a leader on and off the field of play. His baserunning is a huge part of the team's success so far. His stats last month included a .391 batting average, with 14 hits, two doubles, two triples, nine runs, 10 stolen bases, and three RBIs.
Payton Howie has been an offensive phenom for the Lady Lions this season. She is currently batting a .375 with 18 RBIs. Payton recently attended a singing competition in Nashville and in her first game back hit a grand slam that helped her team secure the win. Defensively, she has a .375 caught stealing percentage and 109 put outs. Payton shows up to practice every day ready to work hard and improve, encouraging her teammates to do the same.
Tyler's drive and perseverance on the field is unmatched. As a leader and captain of our close defensive unit, Tyler strives every day to make himself, his squad, and the team into better lacrosse players. Players can count on his wisdom and knowledge of the sport to better enhance team cohesion. Tyler is a force to be reckoned with, averaging 8 defensive turnovers, 6 ground balls, and 5 successful clears per game to place the team in optimal situations. Off the field, Tyler's humility and dedication to his team, his school, and his community will without a doubt serve him greatly in the years to come.
