Athletes of the Month Honored At Mass Today!

Today, we honored four student athletes for their achievements during the months of December and January in athletics, academics, and living out our virtues of the week.  Congratulations to John Fukon and Kari Karanikos for their efforts in December! Congratulations to Michael Drambel and Amanda Bucklew for their efforts in January!

 

 

      *John Fukon,  Senior,  Basketball*       A detailed oriented basketball player, John is always gaining insight from his coaches. He is one of the top scorers on the team and an excellent teammate. He has multiple 20+ point games; most recently on Tuesday of last week when he scored 21 in a win vs Brentwood. He has battled through season long nagging injuries while never complaining once.

   *Kari Karanikos,  Senior,  Basketball *   A senior guard starter, Kari leads by example on and off court. On the court, she leads the team in shot completion from the field and is a leader on defense always getting teammates communicating and energized during games. She is committed to the growth and development of her teammates and she elevates others by example. Her coaches say that you want to be a better person, teammate and player when she is around!

   *Michael Drambel, Senior, Basketball*  He is described as a dependable player who has been a consistent force on both ends of the floor for the boys basketball team. Michael leads the team in scoring which includes a 31 point game just a few weeks ago. Although he has a quiet demeanor he is still able to display leadership through his actions. As a forward, he has been charged with many difficult assignments against much larger opponents. Each time, he answers the challenge without hesitation or complaint.

 

    *Amanda Bucklew, Senior, Basketball*  A senior forward, Amanda is personable and confident in her actions. She knows the right time to use her personality to lighten a stressful moment for the team or has the confidence to be the peer to let teammates know when they need to all work harder towards their team goal. On the court, she is leading the team in foul shot completions with over 80% and has been instrumental in their balanced scoring attack.
