The average GPA of the 17 cross county runners was a 3.892 for the 1st quarter. Five students stood out by earning an A in every class. Those five students were: Adam Bohm, Eric Bohm, Randi Schultz, Ryan Emme, and Krista Koke (not pictured). Great work, student-athletes!
Senior Adam Bohm was named Boy’s Team MVP and Most Exceptional Teammate for the 2020 cross country season. Both of these awards were voted on by his teammates. He ran nine races this year, finishing 1st in six of them, 2nd twice, and 5th once.
Junior Kalei McDaniel was voted as the MVP for the girl’s high school cross country team by her teammates for this year. She ran in 7 races, finishing in first place one time, 2nd place three times, 4th place once, 12th place in the regional, and 52nd in the sectional.
Sophomore Lance Hamm has earned the Coach’s Award for the 2020 high school cross country season. Lance joined the cross country team when he learned that there would not be a football season, and his attitude, work ethic, and positivity really stood out this year.
Sophomore Jacob Huynh earned the award of Most Improved for the 2020 high school cross country season. Jacob improved his 3 mile time by 7:14 this year. This was his first year running, so we are looking forward to continued growth in the future!

We have received several inquiries about the recent announcements last week from both the IHSA and the Governor's office regarding the upcoming basketball season. Please understand that as a district we are studying all of the developments carefully and gathering as much information as possible before making a decision. Our district will continue to have discussions regarding the start of the high school boys and girls basketball seasons that are scheduled to begin on November 16. Once we have more clarity, a parent meeting will be scheduled to address those decisions and answer any questions parents might have. At this time, if you have any questions, please contact our athletic director, Tyler Southwood, at the junior high school office or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Go Ducks!
