  • Sydney Krompasky, 9th grade, volleyball:  Don’t worry what the upperclassmen think and don’t be scared to ask them for help. Don’t be worried to try out a new sport just because you don’t think you will do good. Make every practice and ask for help. Push yourself and don’t give up because you fail the first time. When you’re on the court forget about what someone told you outside of the sport but focus on your practice and get better.
  • Annie Skirpan 10th grade, cross country:  You should always work hard and try your best. If you work hard enough, you’ll always accomplish your goals. It takes dedication, courage and perseverance.
  • Cole Fuller, 11th grade, football:  I have always believed in out training my opponents so I would say never take a day off and work as hard as possible.
  • Kallie Jones, 12th grade, soccer:  The difference between a good and a great athlete is how emotionally and mentally tough you are. Mistakes happen. You can only improve. I live by the motto “a minor setback for a major comeback”. Believe in yourself in order to make others believe in you.
