Our MISD Athletic Word of the Week has been “Class”. Coaches visited with athletes about sportsmanship, quality treatment of opponents and teammates. Our Athletes of the Week: Lincoln Everett, Payton Dawes, Kaylee Miller, Trinity Dudek, Samantha Allen, David McLeod, Isaiah Rojas, Kareem Coleman, Tate Stevens, Jacob Barnhill, Denzel Adogo, Julius Thompson.
We have discovered that we have an abundance of “Encouragers” in our athletic program. They remain positive in tight situations and build up their teammates when things are tough.
They help to build confidence and bring a refocus attitude to all. This builds success and
strong friendships within the program. Just AWESOME!!!!
