In Middle School Athletics, you find many different levels of growth - both physically and mentally.
Size, strength, coordination, skills, confidence, competitiveness, commitment, etc… But we have
found heart, friendship, teamwork, leadership ability as areas we can use to bond us together to
play every sport we offer and obtain success. We have Leaders by example, Vocal Leaders and
athletes who are all out heart and soul in their efforts to help the team. I have watched us play
basketball games this week and caught offseason weight room and conditioning workouts and we
have many athletes transforming into encouragers, enforcers, teammates, leaders! We are really
building solid young ladies and men. Their future is so bright!!!
