Emily Welch (pictured above), a senior on the gymnastics team (also track & field and National Honor Society), earned an outstanding third-place finish in the Division 2 Bars event at the Kensington Lakes Activities Association Championship last week in Walled Lake.
Lauren Allen, co-captain of the JV girls basketball team, is named Wildcat of the Week by Coach Flaherty. “Lauren’s defense is what contributed to our win over Waterford Mott Friday evening. Her presence on the floor was missed while she was out of town and I can speak for our squad that we were glad to have her back. Lauren plays big minutes when in the game and always works hard flying around on defense to guard some of the best players we face during the season,” Coach Flaherty stated. This week Lauren had 14 points, 6 steals and 6 rebounds.
Devon Wisniewski (freshmen basketball) played a major role in the teams victories against Walled Lake Northern and Milford. He played solid defense, helped the team handle the defensive pressure of Northern and is a very unselfish passer on the offensive end. Was the 2nd leading scorer in the win against Milford with 9 points. Great teammate, one of the hardest workers in practice, and a great student!
Dylan Dwyer (wrestling, also soccer) fought through a painful injury to place fourth at individual regionals and qualify for the state meet. Dylan defines the word “grit,” as he persevered through two potentially season-ending injuries to still achieve many of his goals this season.
Robert Florence (varsity basketball, also football, track & field) had four rebounds and two blocked shots in two games this week. Robert played with inspired energy when he was put into the game. According to Coach Soukup, Robert is “one of the best teammates I have ever had the pleasure of coaching.”
Sutherlyn Olah is a sophomore on the varsity competitive cheer team. All season, Sutherlyn
has been a huge asset for the team. Sutherlyn is a beautiful tumbler with the most elite tumbling skills on the team. Sutherlyn is a strong base and leads her team with strong round two skills, and it showed when her team performed their best round 2 of their season at the MHSAA Regional tournament this past Saturday.
