Spring Sports 2017!

    Spring sports officially started tryouts and practices on February 15th.  It was nice to get out to each team and see the energy and enthusiasm from our Athletic LEADERs.  In our meetings in the preseason, they have described a variety of organized, well thought out visions for each of their programs and we couldn't be more proud of the work they are doing for our Student-Athletes.  Our New Softball LEADER, Holly Smith, is excited for "the growth potential for the softball program while recognizing the foundation for a solid program to grow upward."

   The Athletic Department also wants to make a special note about our Bass Fishing LEADER, Scott McMahan, who has truly taken a huge step forward with last year's team and experiences.  He is committed to developing an intentional culture and developing a program that will impact his student-athletes for a lifetime.  Last year was focused on entering tournaments and fishing.  This year, his intention is to LEAD these anglers through lessons about fishing, life skills, commitment, and character development. He feels that a "year long focus on Team/Family bonds, a variety of fishing experiences, angling skills practice and commitment to something bigger than themselves" will impact their future in a meaningful way.  He hopes that one day the lessons his anglers have learned, will lead them to become a Bass Fishing Coach as well.  Creating a legacy and developing a program seem to be the focus and commitment of our Coach, Scott McMahan.
