Here is why they were featured by our Head Coaches:

Boys’ Cross-Country: Armando Gonzalez – 11th Grader Current GPA:  3.83 Varsity

“Armando has been our most consistent runner over the summer.  He leads by example and never complains.  Armando’s hard work has paid off as he was our fastest runner in our one mile time trial with a time of 4:51.  His excellence in the classroom is just as impressive as he has maintained a 3.8 GPA.  He is the ideal student-athlete.”  Coach Sanchez

Girls’Tennis:  Joanne Hoang – 12th Grader Current GPA:  3.85 Varsity

“Joanne sets the bar high for being a great teammate. She is self-motivated, determined and passionate.  Joanne never questions instruction, instead focusing on trying to implement what she’s being taught.  She is one of the first on the court and one of the last to leave the court.  This dedication shows in her undefeated start this season.  Joanne is a tremendous example to the rest of the girls on the team.”    Coach Cortez

Boys’ Water Polo:   Ian Ibarra – 10th Grader Current GPA:  3.33   Varsity

“Ian Ibarra is a first year varsity player who has shown great determination and dedication in earning his spot in our varsity roster for our upcoming season. He was a constant presence at practice all throughout the summer attending both afternoon scrimmages and 5am swim workouts. The level of dedication he shows is unrivaled in our program, optional 5:15am workouts are never an option for him, he makes every practice a mandatory practice. As a player he continues to learn the game and is working hard to master not only the skills but the mental aspect of being an effective threat in the water. Coach Lee and I are looking forward to 3 more years of Ian in our programs.”   Coach Morris

 Girls’ Volleyball:  Lizbeth Uribe – 12th Grader Current GPA:  3.57  Varsity

“I coached Lizbeth last year as a Junior on the JV team and she has grown so much as a player this year.  She is constantly asking me what she can do to become better or asking what she is doing wrong.  She is a dedicated player at every game, practice and even working out during the dead period.  She also helps out keeping the team informed of the practice schedule and she also designed the team’s practice gear.  Lizbeth has become someone you can rely on both on and off the court.  She has really stepped up and become a very valuable player.  I believe her dedication, hard work and love for the sport has clearly shown.  These reasons are why I would like to select Lizbeth Uribe as September Athlete of the Month.  She is not only deserving of this award, but she has clearly earned it!”    Coach Sok
