ATHLETICS: Football and Volleyball Team Captains
As the school year ramps up, so do our Huskies’ football and volleyball seasons. This weekend’s football game against Maya Angelou brought an unprecedented win of 43-0. The Huskies came on strong for their first game of the season! Captain Lionell Wiggins, when asked what he’d like to say to his team, noted, “There might be times when we’re not on the same page, but at the end of the day we are a family. My goal for this team is for us to just get better and better, good enough to get to playoffs, and win league.” He capped off his heartfelt response with “Because being with this team, I have learned a lot.”
Although the volleyball team has not yet started their game season, Captain Skylar Hess has no shortage of things to say about her team. Asked the same question, Skylar gave an eager, “thank you so much to my teammates and wonderful coach for being supportive and always working 110%. We have definitely been working our hardest to prepare for the season and I know it’s going to be great.” The follow-up question, “What is your goal for the season?”, received a short and determined reply—“to win league.”
The drive and ambition of our captain is startlingly sincere, and as Huskies, we’ll be there to cheer them on every step of the way. The next football game is this Friday against Sage Hill, and the next volleyball game is Thursday, September 4th. See you there!
