Student-athletes who demonstrate leadership, dedication, and perseverance in school and in the community can be nominated by coaches, athletic directors, and teachers for this honor.
The program will recognize not only the best athletes on each team, but also those who dedicate time to school , volunteer organizations, or have overcome a personal obstacle.
Congratulations to all of our student-athletes!
Track and field athlete, Jack Gardell, has continued to challenge himself to always "be better than last time." Recently, Jack ran a 39 second personal best at the State Sectionals and took 5th place. As a student-athlete, he is an inspiration to other students as he shows what it takes to plow through difficult times and to work on achieving goals even when they are demanding. In addition to his athletic ability and outstanding sportsmanship, Jake is also one of the top students in the sophomore class and a three sport athlete. His young talent will continue to propel the team forward in the future.
Basketball team captain, Bryn Radvanski, is the definition of a successful student-athlete. On the court, her hard work has enabled her to triple her numbers in assists, steals, and rebounds. Her selfless leadership style has allowed her to receive accolades such as the Team Leadership Award and the Maroon and Steel Award. Off the court, Bryn is a member of the the National Honor Society, Athletic Leadership Council, Peer Leadership, Key Club, Student Council, and Relay for Life. She volunteers and gets involved to help enhance and promote a positive school culture. Bryn has done a great job of helping younger players transition from Middle School to High School. She is a life learner, a critical thinker, and a problem solver. Recently, she was selected by Aberdeen Matawan Soccer Club to be a co-supervisor of the community’s soccer programs for children with special needs.
