Athletes of the Month - September 2021

Each month, we will recognize two outstanding students for their athletic performances in the preceding month. Recommended by their coaches, these student-athletes have excelled representing our school and our community and we are extremely excited to share their accomplishments with you.

September 2021:

Emily Geary

Emily Geary – Softball

Our coaching staff is excited to nominate Emily Geary as an Athlete of the Month. Emily serves as one of the two captains on our softball team and has tremendous senior leadership on and off the field. She catches most games for us and is a brick wall behind the plate. Many players look to her for communication on the field. Emily has a .559 batting average, 1.037 slugging percentage, 19 hits, 1 homerun, and 18 RBI's all while maintaining an incredibly high GPA! Emily is the definition of an exceptional student-athlete. Congratulations Emily!

Peyton Walker

Peyton Walker – Soccer

Peyton Walker stepped forward into the goalkeeper role for the men’s soccer team this year.  Despite having never played goalie, he has embraced the challenge.  Like a sponge, Peyton has soaked up information and training from games and practices.  Assistant Coach Luke Kriefall praised Peyton’s work ethic explaining how “Peyton wants to learn and goes above and beyond to get better during every individual training drill.  Instead of ending when he is tired, he keeps working until he does it right.”  Congratulations Peyton!
