ATHLETICS 

Congratulations to the January CHS Student-Athletes of the Month:

Davin Yoo, sophomore - Swimming and Diving: Davin has worked extremely hard this season in the pool and in the classroom. He currently has all A's and has excelled in his races. He recently dropped a significant amount of time and went a 1:02 last week only to be followed up by a 1:00 this week. Davin is positive and a great teammate. He has been challenged by his coaches to take his swimming to the next level, and Davin has answered that challenge.

Dreanna Colvin, senior – BasketballDreanna is one of the most enthusiastic players during games. Dreanna encourages her teammates in a positive way. In a reserve role as a senior, Dreanna is always ready when needed. As an example of her ‘team first’ mentality, when one of the JV players forgot their uniform, she loaned them hers. (Not pictured)

Amari Houston, freshman – Track and Field: Amari was recognized by her teammates for work ethic during practice including doing "an amazing job pushing herself on the long runs". Amari’s fellow distance runners have seen and benefitted from Amari’s significant improvement since her from her first days on the team. (Not pictured)

Jiwoo Kim, junior - Track and Field: Jiwoo was identified by her peers as a leader in practice. Jiwoo is a hard worker, and encourages those she runs with to continue beyond their point of comfort and pushes them to get better. Jiwoo has a contagious smile and is an encouraging and helpful teammate to those who are behind her and puts in what seems like twice the effort to keep with those ahead of her.

Ally Welty Peachey, freshman - Track and FieldAlly was selected by her peers as this week's underclassman athlete of the week. Ally has been encouraging all of the distance girls throughout their workouts. Ally’s encouraging words have really helped her teammates push through and finish their workouts.
