Even at the end of the season in the conference meet, Whitney finished first place among freshman and fourth overall. With a strong beginning to her career as a team runner, Whitney looks ahead to the future.
“It was really cool,” Whitney said. “I didn’t see it coming because I didn’t think I would be able to make it, so it was really cool to even impress myself when I made it [to states.]”
Jimmy Scholler – Sophomore – Boys Varsity Basketball
Sophomore Jimmy Scholler had an incredible season, but what makes it all the more impressive is all of these accomplishments were achieved while playing as a sophomore. Jimmy finished with 221 points, the second most on the team. He averaged almost 11 points per game. Jimmy was also one of the best passers, as he finished with 118 assists. He also had the most rebounds of anyone on the team. Looking ahead to the future, it is clear Jimmy will be a leader for the team for two more years.
“Jimmy is one of the most talented sophomores in the state,” Head coach Ken George said. “He had an unbelievable season where he led our team in assists, rebounds, and steals. As the season went on, he became more and more dominant on the court. He is a gifted offensive player who can score in creative ways around the basket. Jimmy wants nothing more than to be a college basketball player, and I know he is well on his way.”
Caden Jacobs – Freshman – Wrestling
Weighing in at 103 pounds, Caden Jacobs was the only freshman to go to regionals. Caden wrestled strong all season and finished 5th at regionals to end his season.

At the Kent County Championship, he took third overall being the first freshman to ever place top three at this tournament.
