Are High School Sports Necessary? Why?

Even though not all kids do high school sports and can find ways to be successful, high school sports have taught me skills I will carry through all my future challenges.

Comments for the Coach:

 

While River's position on the court has recently changed a bit, she has not let that affect her effort or attitude. She always puts the team first!  When asked her thoughts on the changes, she was not only excited for how it brought up the team's competitive level, she said she didn't mind whether she sat out a few rotations or played all the way around. She is just as excited watching her sub come in for her as she is to go back onto the court.  She brings her teammates energy level up, and is always encouraging them.  On the court she is talking both offensively and defensively, which is something everyone on the court wants in a teammate.  It is also fun watching her get some front row reps, as she has a crazy high vertical, and she finally gets to put that to use! Although a Junior, River is a leader, a trusted teammate, and she loves to take on hard tasks--something I have always loved about this athlete!

Comments for the Coach:

In Crested Butte this weekend, one of the officials sought Will out after the game to praise him for his positive influence and leadership on the field. Will also scored a technically perfect penalty kick against a very talented goal keeper. After the game, the official pulled Will and me aside and commended Will on not only motivating his own teammates in a positive manner, but also being positive with the opposing team.

Are High School Sports Necessary? Why?

Sports have been a huge part of my life (especially running). It gives you time to think. They force you to push yourself and discover your true potential and give you’re a toughness found nowhere else.

Comments for the Coach:

Mason is such a wonderful runner on our team. He shows up ready to work every single day, but beyond that he is always willing to clean the buses, carry our supplies, and reach out to all the athletes on our team. He has been an integral part in bringing our two teams (girls and boys teams) into one cohesive team and we are very glad to have him!

Are High School Sports Necessary? Why?

Yes, because they build friendships teach commitment and are so fun!

Comments from the Coach:

Tryouts are always a nerve-wracking time for freshman, and Elsa stepped in and led with grace.  Her sweet disposition automatically draws people to her, and she used this skill to work alongside the underclassmen.  She is always helpful with the net and prompt to assist wherever needed.  Elsa also put in a lot of time and energy improving her game over the summer.  Her arm swing has improved tremendously, and I am looking forward to her being the offensive threat we need!  While blocking is typically her strength, I think everyone should be excited to see her hit the ball this season! For these reasons, I believe Elsa is an excellent nomination for the PSHS Triple Impact Student-Athlete of the Week.
