Matea Ivory – Track

Matea is working really hard to improve upon the great season she had last year.

She is off to an impressive start already. At our first meet of the season in Ephrata last week, her 100M time was a 12.97 which is faster than the state qualifying time. Her team and coaches are excited to what the season holds for Matea this year!  – Coach Barnes

Drake Bird- Baseball

Drake Bird is coming off a very serious knee injury sustained during the last week of basketball season.

Drake hasn’t missed a step. In 6 plate appearances against the Quincy Jacks, Drake had 3 doubles, one single, and his first HS home run. He exemplifies all the qualities of a true student athlete.    – Coach Papasedero
