Victoria Wachowski

Girls Tennis

Do you have any advice to younger athletes?

Always give your best, even during practice. Have fun with it! But make sure to maintain good time management between school and the sport(s) you play. Also you're not made to be perfect, so you may have a few "bad" days, but you need to learn to grow from them.

What do you want to be when you "grow up"?

When I graduate, I want to go to college to continue my education. I honestly don't know where I want to go yet, but I know I want to stay in-state. I want to major in Biology, to become a Veterinarian in the future.


Kathryn Romanowski

Girls Tennis

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?

My advice for younger athletes is to find your motivation and let it drive you. All if takes is hard work and determination. Without it, you won't improve.


Anna Lakosky 

Girls Cross Country

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?

If you ever want to quit, give it a week and you probably won’t want to quit by then.

If I won a lottery of 10 million dollars:

I would purchase a house. Then, I’d purchase 500 acres of fertile Midwest land and rent it to farmers. Land goes for $200 per acre per year. That’s $100, 000 per year. I’d never work again. Then, I’d probably have a super nice dinner with all my friends.

Hobbies outside of my sport:

I like to learn. I also enjoy discussing politics.



Caden George

Boys Cross Country

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?

Never take any of your practices or games/meets for granted. Playing sports is a privilege, not a right. Play every game like it’s your last.

Do you plan to compete in athletics at university/college level?

When I attend my future University, I don’t plan on competing in any sports. This isn’t because I am not competent, but because it doesn’t fit in my schedule.  This isn’t going to stop me from joining club or intramural sports, which are a great alternative to University sports.



Bobby Mescall

Boys Cross Country

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?

Do what you want. Never feel forced into anything and do what you love. Always have fun and take in every moment.

What activity makes you most happy?

An activity that makes me most happy is wrestling because I get to learn new moves, play splatterball and I feel like wrestling suits me most.
