Congratulations to Kyler Terashima (Basketball) and Maddie Rice (Swim) for being named the Bull Collar Athletes for the month of November.
- Head Boys Basketball Coach Jon Nettleton nominated Kyler. Of Kyler, Coach Nettleton said that, “Kyler’s dedication to improving his skills through practice, off season workouts is evident to anyone who has watched him play these past 4 years. He works so hard each and every day. He has a great attitude, very appreciative and respectful both in the classroom and on the court. Kyler is a great teammate as he tries to get everyone involved, fired up during games and wants his team to succeed! Kyler is very deserving of this award as he is what the Bull Collar Award stands for — Grit that never Quits!
- Maddie was nominated by head Swim coach Tyler Maryon. Coach Maryon commented that, “Maddie is a captain on the swim team and is a leader in the pool, out of the pool, and in the classroom. Swimming and anchoring on two state winning and record setting relays and placing second in the 100 Butterfly her talents in the pool speak for themselves. She is always to practice early asking questions about how she can improve and other ways to be better. She never backed down from a challenge. When I had to step away she would lead the team during practice. Everyone looked up to her and she always gave advice on how to help other swimmers. She always maintains the highest level in the classroom with a 4.0 and is beloved by her teachers. On the weekends she works to help rehabilitate people with speech, hearing, and other disabilities. Maddie is an example of what every coach loves to see in an athlete. She strives for the best and always wants others to succeed along with her. For these reasons I believe Maddie is the most qualified recipient of the bull collar. She represents all the aspects and ideas that it takes to be a standout student, athlete, leader, and teammate.
