Are High School Sports Necessary? Why?

Yes, they create strong bonds, give you something to do, and help you push your limits.

Comments from the Coach:

Rylie Carr is the cornerstone of our girls' track team, leading our sprint program with remarkable speed. Rylie demonstrated that speed by winning the 100 Meter dash in our league meet on Saturday, which gives her the title of the fastest girl in the IML. She is currently ranked 5th in class 3A for the 100 Meter. When Rylie wins a race, it's often by a significant margin. She holds both the school records for the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes. Her contribution to our girls' 4x100 and 4x200 teams, both ranked in the state's top ten, is invaluable.

This year, Rylie broke the stadium record in Bayfield for the 100 Meter dash. We consider ourselves fortunate to have Rylie as a member of our team. Beyond her exceptional athletic abilities, she exemplifies sportsmanship by cheering on her teammates from the sidelines. Rylie's dedication to her teammates is evident in her constant encouragement and support. She has put in extra time preparing for this season by participating in several indoor meets during the winter months.

With her outstanding performances and support for her team, Rylie Carr is on track to have a great junior season. ~Coach O’Donnell

Comments from the Coach:

Riley is a standout senior baseball player and a consummate perfectionist at his trade. His value to our team is immeasurable. He plays multiple positions, from pitcher, first base, centerfield to shortstop at times. Riley never asks why but asks how he can help the team. His work effort is second to none. He is the first to show up to practice and the last to leave. Riley leads or is near the top in every major category of our offense from stolen bases, on base percentage, batting average, and runs scored. Defensively, he is our number one pitcher, leading the team in strikeouts and Earned Run Average. Riley supports his teammates working with underclass players to improve their skills and understanding of the game. Riley is a team captain and his coachability is off the charts. Off the field you can find Riley working out in the weight room to help strengthen his game. He helps work with our youth baseball teams so that someday they can follow in his footsteps. Riley also gets it done in the classroom, maintaining above a 3.0 average. He continually emphasizes the importance of academics to his teammates. ~Coach Ben Garcia

Are High School Sports Necessary? Why?

They are necessary because they build character. You learn to work together and communicate with teammates and coaches. They teach you many life skills that you can use. Along with skills, they keep you fit and you make like long friendships. Bonding after sports creates friendships. Without sports, many of of lives would be different.

Jeidy is a standout senior player who brings incredible value to the Pagosa Spring HS soccer program. As a skilled defender and midfielder, she has a natural ability to read the game and distribute the ball effectively, elevating her teammates' performance on the field. Her defense is an impenetrable wall, and nothing gets past her. Jeidy's discipline extends beyond the soccer field; she maintains straight As in her academics and exemplifies a strong work ethic. Her commitment to excellence not only improves her own game but also helps push her teammates to strive for greatness. On and off the field, Jeidy is supportive and lighthearted fostering a positive and fun team culture. ~Coaches Trevor Gian and Dyan Rice

Those performances now position him within the top 10 in 3A across all three jumping events.

Trey is an outstanding young man with great character and understands the definition of team. Trey had a very limited role as far as playing time this year, but you will never find a better teammate than Trey Garcia. He understood his role and actually became the leader of the scout team. Trey did a phenomenal job of helping our varsity prepare for our state run. Although his minutes were limited, he had a fantastic attitude and was a tremendous teammate all year long, doing anything anyone ever asked of him. He is such an outstanding young man and will be greatly missed next year. ~Coach Wes Lewis

Comments from the Coach:

Annie O’Donnell has been a vital part of the girls varsity basketball team for all four years of her high school career. Our team would not be where it is today without her leadership, endurance, and work ethic both on and off the court.  On the court she leads us in rebounding averaging 6.6 rebounds a game, and having the only double double for us this season so far. She is our go to “big” even though she is only 5’7”, she plays so much bigger than she actually is. This speaks to Annie’s character and personality as well both on and off the court. She is up for any challenge and she conquers them with her positive attitude, energy, and can-do spirit. She leads her younger teammates by showing up everyday and giving her best. Her teammates said they admire her for her strong post moves and her ability to teach them from on the court or the sideline. 

Not only is Annie an outstanding basketball athlete, she has been a four year varsity track and field athlete, along with a two year varsity volleyball athlete. Annie’s accomplishments don’t stop there. She is the Student body president, a part of student council, she is also a member of four other clubs which include FBLA, HOSA, SALT, and NHS. Annie makes top marks in all her classes and still finds time to support her other classmates by showing up to any and all pirate sporting events she can. It has been a blessing for me these last four years getting to coach such an incredible person and athlete.

Aspen Pitcher has been a steady force in the Pirate Volleyball program her entire career. Not only is she an all-around player, but she is an incredible teammate, always speaking positively and encouragingly to her teammates as well as the rest of the Lady Pirate volleyball players. She leads by example and is always excited for others' successes! On the court, Aspen leads the team in kills, kills/set, hitting %, digs, and digs/set. She is relied upon heavily each game, which can be a lot to shoulder, but she carries the responsibility graciously at all times. Aspen is always working to make herself better, her team better, and her sport better! ~Coach Lorenzen
