Boys Golf – Ty Jenkins (Sr.), Evan Wieber (Sr.) & Brady Witmyer (Sr.)
It’s been over 20 years since a golf team from this county has made it to the state tournament in 2 consecutive seasons and these three seniors did it. This occurred after going undefeated in district championship play their entire high school career. Something very special and tough to repeat.
Girls Cross Country – Emily English (Sr.)
English qualified as an individual for the 3rd time out of 4 years for the FHSAA State Meet. She also won her 4th consecutive individual district championsihp and won the individual county championship for the 3rd time.
Wrestling – Channell Walters (Sr.)
Channell is a first year wrestler who wrestled 138lbs this past Saturday at the Lakeland JV tournament. She went 3-2 pinning three male opponents.
