The Road Runner Sports Wildcats of the Week are Maren Wisniewski, Rebecca Simu, Jessica Joppich, Alan Brown, Michaela Julian, Julia Wehmer, Ben Kirchoff, Calvin Rogers, and Faith Washington. These athletes can stop by the athletic office for their free t-shirt, courtesy of Road Runner Sports of Canton.
Jessica Joppich, senior captain of the girls bowling team, led team by earning a 224 in the team’s win against Northville last Tuesday and subsequently a 183 in the Wayne County Tournament on Saturday.
Alan Brown, a freshman on the boys bowling team, held a 233 average over his last five games, including victories at Northville and the Wayne County Championship last week.
Faith Washington is a sophomore captain on the girls JV basketball team (also track and field). Faith is a positive influence for her teammates and always strives to improve. The past two weeks, Faith really stepped up her game; against Wayne Memorial, Faith scored 18 points (her season high). Faith is the coach’s voice on the floor, leading her teammates vocally and by example each game.
Michaela Julian is a ninth-grade on JV Competitive Cheer. Michaela’s persistent smile and encouragement inspires teammates, while her great questions and drive to succeed impresses her coaches. This week, she volunteered to complete a skill she’s never done so that her team could increase their difficulty rating in the routine.
Julia Wehmer, a member of the girls 9th grade basketball team, was nominated by her coach for her great work ethic, leadership-by-example, and endless effort on the court.
Ben Kirchoff (9, also tennis) and Calvin Rogers (12, also National Honor Society) teamed up to earn a respectable second-place award (out of eight teams) at the Lake Orion Dragons Swim and Dive Invitational in the synchronized diving event.
Rebecca Simu, a senior on the gymnastics team (also track and field), earned an outstanding 9.525 on the beam last week to lead her team to victory over Northville and Waterford.
