Congratulations to our January Athletes of the Month Bronwyn and Alex.

As a true embodiment of the term “student-athlete,” Alex not only excels in his athletic pursuits but also prioritizes studies, striking a remarkable balance between sports and education. His dedication to both aspects of his life is an example to his peers. Also, Alex’s commitment to the HCS senior men’s basketball team is unwavering – he never misses a practice or team event, which is a testament to his loyalty and solid work ethic. Beyond this commitment, he goes even further by volunteering for the middle school basketball teams, serving as a positive role model for young athletes.

Bronwyn has taken on a leadership role since the return of the hockey program, and this season, her teammates voted unanimously for her to wear the C. She goes above and beyond to make sure all players are included and is often seen helping others on the sidelines during training. On the ice, she always gives 100% without being asked and perfectly illustrates all the characteristics of a Spartan athlete, namely sportsmanship, studies, and respect.

Congratulations to both athletes and thank you to the coaches and staff for taking the time to recognize these outstanding students.
