He competed on the 4x400 team that ran a top three time in school history of 3:33.76 and is ranked 7th in the division. Micah has put in the work this year and is peaking at the right time of the season.
Faith has dominated the Ambassador League in the 100 and 200 sprints this year. As a freshman, she has won 7 or 8 races at these distances and has also been a part of winning 4x100 and 4x400 teams. She has a great work ethic and a great attitude, both of which have contributed to her success this season.

Kaylyn is such a joy to coach and we are so grateful to have her on our team. Not only does she score many goals, but she is a great leader who leads by example; she always works hard and pushes herself to do her very best.
Sophie began the golf season without much experience, but jumped right in, and has shown immense improvement. She always has a great attitude and tries her best. She is also a great teammate, always asking how she can help the team and Sophie is dedicated, attending every practice and match. She takes instruction from the coaches very well and it has contributed to her success on the course this season.
"Faith Daludado is an incredible athlete, teammate, and friend. In her first season as goalkeeper for the Lions, Faith made at least 20 saves, giving her team the advantage in winning many of their games this season. Stepping into a position like goalkeeper on a varsity team is not an easy task and Faith did so with grace, composure, and a humble work ethic. She was reliable the entire season and I knew I could always count on her to work her hardest in everything that she did. She was a joy to coach and have on the team this season!" -Coach Angela
James is a quiet, but very polite and a very avid encourager to his teammates, always willing to lend a helping hand. He remains humble and coachable on a consistent basis and his golf game has improved tenfold during this season.
Johnny has been a vital part of the boys JV team this season. He is not only the Lions' leading scorer, but has had multiple 5+ goal games, and has yet to play a game this season without scoring a hat trick. Johnny excels in our league with his outstanding touch and powerful shot. It has been a pleasure to have Johnny as a player on our team and we look forward to his progress on the varsity team and high school soccer in the future.
Johnny is a leader on and off the field. He is a true competitor, and takes his position on the team very serious. He pushes himself to learn and grow in the position of goalkeeper. Over the season, he has been an anchor on the defense, and has helped the team continue their streak in an undefeated season so far. He is respectful to his coaches and teammates, and tries hard to foster a team spirit. The team and coaches are blessed to have him as a part of the varsity team this season.
