Here is what their coaches had to say about them:
Coach Chris Hayes: “Dylan has been working very hard on the field this fall. He is hardworking and a team player.”
Coach Jessica Wilfong: “Alyssa takes her job on the court very seriously. She is a team player, who is always trying to get us a point. She is one of our setters, who not only does her best to set up a hitter but is a smart player seeing the holes on the other side of the net. Alyssa works hard in practice and in games and is a vital player to our team!”
Coach Madison Dugal: “I would like to nominate freshman, Alyssa Martinez, for Athlete of the Week. Alyssa always has a positive attitude and a knack for putting a smile on your face. Apart from being very coachable, Alyssa is a great teammate. She is an extremely hard worker and gives 110% in all that she does and is up for any challenge thrown at her. Her positivity and encouragement is both contagious and appreciated by everyone she’s around. I have greatly enjoyed getting to know Alyssa this year and cannot wait to see where her determination and athleticism takes her. LET’S GO!!!!!!!!”
Coach Todd Varhalla: “In her first year competing in Cross Country, Chloey Hardy continues to improve her times. Hardy placed 21st at the first Bismarck Invitational. At here next meet, Hardy placed 8th at Oak Ridge and decreased her time by ten seconds.”
Coach Colin Eaton: “August Martinez has been a dedicated runner since he started. Even though, Tanner gets a lot of accolades for his accomplishments, August strives for excellence quietly without any complaints in practice. He is getting better daily and those efforts are producing results. He is medaling in races and I hope those results continue for him.”
Coach Tori Henson: “I am nominating Halie because she is a hard worker on and off the court. It doesn’t matter what position I put her in, she gives 100%. I can always count on Halie to take care of the volleyball in tough situations, and chase down any ball to make an amazing play! Halie is a tiny girl, but is HUGE part of our success!”
Congratulations to all the honorees!!
