Sports Headlines

Playing and competing in a sport with an injury can seem like a big obstacle on the way to success, but athletes still try to compete and improve even with their problems. Senior Maddie Moore plays tennis and suffers from a shoulder injury from two years ago but receives encouragement and help from her teammates to keep going.
Steam rises from the water as the sun comes up over the Bryan Aquatic Center. The temperature may be well into the low 40s, but swimmers dive into the pool and begin their warm-up laps before working on specific strokes. Junior Ayden Ayers has been a member of the swimming and diving team throughout high school and has continued to show resilience and determination in each practice as has times have continued to drop and his dives have continued to earn higher scores.
Winning isn’t everything. Many people believe they should only be involved in an activity or a hobby if they excel at it, but rewards come in many different forms. Senior Caleb Peterson proves each day that persistence and doing something because he loves it is key while running cross country.
Football is a calculated sport. Anticipation and planning paired with the mathematics of velocity and angles require players to think quickly. Junior quarterback Nico Bulhoff possesses traits of a great quarterback and excels on the field and in the classroom.
After four years of being on the varsity volleyball team, leadership and teamwork are almost like sixth senses for senior Coco Gillett. With each passing year, Coco has gained experience and responsibility, helping her gain recognition at the collegiate level and respect on the team.
Underdogs are a part of what makes people love sports and this year, with a move to 6A, most teams found themselves in the underdog position. The softball team capitalized on their role as an underdog and showed the other teams what they were made of, earning second place in a highly competitive district before going on to be bi-district champions.
The discus weighs heavily in junior Justin Sheridan’s hand as he prepares to launch it across the field. He begins his spin and then releases as his eyes focus on where the discus will land. At the district meet, Justin threw 137’1” to finish in 3rd place and threw 148’5” at area to place second and advance to region.
It’s late in the game and the Vikings are down by a run with a man in scoring position. Senior Michael Barber feels a surge of adrenaline as he steps up to the plate. The pitcher leans back, and unleashes a fastball. Michael swings hard, and sends the ball flying into the outfield. This is the moment that makes all the sacrifices worth it.
For the Thomas’, wrestling is a family affair. This year, two of the members of the Thomas family advanced to the 6A state wrestling tournament where they were coached by their older brother, also a former Viking wrestler.
Though golf is frequently considered an individual sport, there are team components even when the team is small. Senior Ryan Wilson has shown leadership and strength of character throughout the season.
