Introducing Madras High School’s December Athletes of the Month!
These exceptional athletes from boys and girls basketball, boys and girls wrestling, swimming, and cheerleading have shown outstanding dedication and sportsmanship on and off the court, mat, and in the pool.
Each coach took the time to write down summaries on why these individuals truly stand out. Let’s give a roaring cheer for these December stars!
Girls Basketball: KK has been shooting lights out from 3. Against Sweet Home, she went 4-4 from 3. And this weekend she hit multiple threes in each game, including 2 from just inside the volleyball line against Baker. Her shooting gives our guards more space to drive, and provides a huge offensive boost off the bench. She’s been working hard in practice as well and provides good senior leadership to our team.
– Head Coach Logan Bertram
Boys Basketball: Skytus is averaging 11.4 Points Per Game this season while also providing strong leadership for our team. His month of December was highlighted by back to back 20+ point games against Corbett & Henley.
– Head Coach Nick Brown
Boys Wrestling: Earl placed 6th at the Perry Burlison Invitational at Cascade High School, a tough 22 team tournament. He was tournament champion at the Culver Invitational. He placed 5th at the Sisters Invitational, and placed 2nd at the White Buffalo Invite. Earl has shown great improvement from last season and has been wrestling tough. As only a sophomore he has a great future ahead of him at Madras High School.
– Head Coach Travis Ralls
Girls Wrestling: Julia has been putting in a lot of work this season! Her hard work has been paying off with her recent placings at tournaments! She placed:
2nd at the Sisters Tournament
4th at the Lady White Buffalo Tournament
Wrestled really tough at Sierra Nevada Classics (Reno)
2nd at the Eagle Point Invitational (recent)
– Head Coach Evangeline Young
Swimming: Bryan is a new swimmer this year with no background in the sport. He’s been working super hard all year and at our most recent meet in Madras, Bryan dropped 10 seconds in his 50 free, swimming a 35.29. This is not a common drop for first year swimmers. We are super proud of him and look forward to seeing what he does his next three seasons.
– Head Coaches Garrett Webb & Joannah Pendell
Cheerleading: Manny is the positive energy that our cheer team needed. He is always up for trying new stunts and is a great backspot. He is always willing to lend a hand and support a teammate. Manny is more then deserving of athlete of the month.
– Head Coaches Brittany Killion & Amanda Monroe
