Congratulations to Liam Clark and Marek for making our Athletes and Activity Competitors of the week.
Marek had her passion for wrestling full filled when the school board voted, with parameters, to approve girls wrestling. She has worked hard to establish herself as a wrestler while also being very competitive on the swim team. We are so proud of her. At Canyon View she went 3-1 and took second place. Two weeks ago she went to Cyprus high school and she went 1-2 at the 6a tournament taking 4th. This past Saturday she took 2nd place. Her current varsity record is 6-4.
As a swimmer, coaches said this:
Marek has done super this season balancing both swim & wrestling. She had two great meets last week earning prs in both her 200 & 100 freestyle races. Mekker is a great swimmer and loves to compete. She works hard at practice and is a great teammate.
We see tremendous potential with Liam. He has proven as a freshman you can achieve anything if you commit to action. His Speech and Debate coach said this about Liam – Liam is an ambitious and intelligent novice who has shown great dedication to the Speech and Debate team. He has already competed in multiple events including Public Forum, Spar, Duo, and Student Congress. In the most recent tournament, Liam placed 1st in Congress. Most importantly, he shows passion for seeing multiple perspectives of an argument and he values being part of a team.
Swim coaches said this about him- Liam is a new swimmer this year. He has come a long way..set a new pr in the 50 free & tried his hand at the 100 breaststroke. Liam is new to the team and does extremely well and remains true to his teammates in both swim and Debate.
