The December athlete of the month for girl's basketball is Khy Morgan. Not only is she a great athlete, she is motivated to get better and works hard to help others do the same. Khy is a high scorer, a strong ball handler, and is a great teammate.  Khy inspires her teammates to give 100% and I am proud of the way she lifts the underclassman.  I look forward to the great things she will do in LIFE!


Darell Lindstrom - Boy's High School Basketball

Darell has spent the first part of the season learning a new position and has taken to the grind of playing the post with enthusiasm.  Having spent the first three years of his basketball career at guard, Darell is transitioning beautifully.  Statistically, Darell is contributing on the offensive end through offensive rebounds and put backs and defensively you will find him battling the opposing teams' big men.  He is also contributing to the team chemistry through vocal leadership and a dedication to his teammates.

Khanyisa Morgan - High School Volleyball

Khy was elected team captain by her team mates and helped set high expectations for the team in both play and attitude. Her leadership and positive talk on the floor was very helpful and inspirational. She did a great job both offensively and defensively.  Offensively, she contributed ace serves, kills and blocks. Defensively, she was the top serve receiver eight times in September, as well as, being one of the top three “diggers” in over half the games.

Sydney Morris - High School Volleyball

Sydney played on JV last year. This was only her second season of volleyball.  She proved herself early on by being extremely coachable, self-motivated and competitive. She led the team in ace serves five times in September. Defensively she did an excellent job digging and receiving the ball. She learned to read the ball and cover her hitters and blockers. She became very adept at digging up the other team’s short court tips and hits. Sydney worked to improve every game and every practice. By the end of September, she had proven herself an important part of the varsity team. Her skill level and personal expectations were far above and beyond that of a second year player.



September


Caleb VanDyk - High School Cross Country

Caleb has improved his 5k time on every cross country race this season. His most impressive performance so far has been a personal record at the We Love Hills cross country meet in Payette. From the gun, Caleb put him self up with the front runners on a very hilly course. He pushed himself the entire race, never gave up, and still earned a personal record and finished 3rd overall as a sophomore behind 2 seniors in that race. It was a hot day on a hilly, dusty and dirt course, but Caleb still pushed himself the entire time.. He is a hard worker, never complains and pushes himself every single day, even when conditions may not be perfect. He is more importantly a positive member for others on the team, others look up to him because of his hard work and accomplishments. He encourages and motivates his teammates and runs with them even if his pace is sometimes faster than theirs.


Darell Lindstrom - High School Football

Darell has worked hard to make his team better on and off the field. He has improved his and his fellow teammates game by pushing practice to a high level. Darrell has become one of the top statistical leaders at QB in our league and is a feared defensive lineman. Also, Darell has been tutoring a struggling player to help him remain eligible. Darrell has shown great leadership abilities and is very deserving of this award.
