As we guide our children and young people through life, we want them to make good decisions. Many of our young people are involved in sports. Chris Benzinger, a parent and coach and the director of Mission and Evangelization for the diocese, has instituted a program, Play Like a Champion Today. This program offers practical ways to be a strong athlete on and off the field. The articles are also helpful in developing sound decision making skills even if your child does not play athletics.
We want to congratulate some of our outstanding student athletes.
First, congratulations to Jaleah Watson. Jaleah, with her cheer team, Cheer Omega Betas, won a national championship in Atlanta, GA last weekend.
Also last weekend, several students from SHCS participated in the USA Volleyball Gulf Coast Region Championship. The students included Aubree Wartman, Amelia Omer, Ginny Myers, Auldyn Comish, Laura Trajano, Anna Gorton, Elizabeth Odee, Kristen Cassady, Regan Howard, Emily Kate Holliman and Beyonce White.
Elizabeth Odee, Regan Howard, Emily Kate Holliman and Beyonce White were all members of the team that won first place in the 14 and Under division.
Aubree Wartman was a member of the team that won second place in the 12 and Under division.
Congratulations to all of these students. We are proud of you and look forward to seeing more of your accomplishments in the future!
Third quarter Honor Roll will be recognized this Wednesday, January 25th, at Praise and Worship at 2 p.m. in the Cathedral. Please recognize and support these young people as we recognize their achievement.
