Since everyone is in the voting mood with the elections coming up on November 8th, the athletic department decided to have it’s first ever ‘Top Athlete of the Fall Sports Season’ award voted upon by the fans!
Coaching staffs were asked to nominate an athlete from their sport who excelled on the field, court, or course! Take a look at the following athletes and vote for the Hornet you feel is deserving of the ‘Top Athlete’ award!
Katie Giller – Lady Hornets Volleyball
She led our team in kills with 270 and a hitting percentage of .467 (that’s really good!) and a kill percentage of 68.6. She also led our team in digs with 266. She was 2nd in blocks with 84. She was our go to player all season-we relied on her every game! Katie was also named all-conference and all-county! – Coach Hall
Sam Elliott – Boys Soccer
Samuel Elliott. Senior. Team Captain. Leads by example as well as verbally. Strong academic grades. Played sweeper, which is the last man on defense before the goalkeeper. Strong and fast athlete. Plays with his heart. Contributed several goals as well as assists despite playing defense most of the season. – Coach Barkman
Chase Andries – Football
Varsity QB for the 8-3 Hornets football team. Most wins by the Hornet football team since 1985. Chase was your prototypical dual-threat quarterback with over 2,400 yards passing and 870 yards rushing. He threw for 32 touchdowns with only 6 interceptions, and he rushed 11 touchdowns as well. Chase played both sides of the ball and finished the season with 45 tackles, 1 sack, 10 passes defended, and 1 interception return for a touchdown. Chase was the team’s punter, place kicker, and he was in charge of kick offs too! – Coach Weller
