October Athlete of the Month
Evan Allen - Evan is a three year captain and first team 2019 MVC all star. Evan is also the Vice-President of the National Honor Society and volunteers numerous hours in the community. Evan displays sportsmanship and was recently voted the Player of the Year by the Mountain Valley coaches for the 2019 season. (Coach Allen)
River Horn -River was selected as a team captain, not just because she was a senior, but because of her capabilities. River epitomizes the word captain both on and off the field, her leadership and mentorship are a huge reason for our success and growth as a team. River quietly takes control of every situation and diffuses team issues and conflicts with her demeanor and grace. River was definitely the emotional leader for the team. River helped integrate nine freshmen to the squad and made them feel like members of the team and part of our family.
River has lettered for since she was a freshman and has started almost every game since she joined the program. River’s impact on the field was easy to recognize, when she was sidelined two games with a concussion this year, we lost both games. River was always a dream to coach, she truly has a coachable spirit. River was always receptive to listen and provide valuable feedback for herself and her team. River is our emotional leader on and off the field...she is a master at breaking down tough conversations and situations in order to lift her teammates up and make them feel like part of the family.
River is a beast at practice, she always brought 100% every day, her hard work was contagious and exemplified her as a leader. River was the most unselfish player that I have coached, she would be just as content to provide an assist to a teammate than a goal for herself. If it was not for River’s on and off the field contributions to this team we would not have made the quarterfinals in the playoffs or had a record of 8-5-3.
River was an honor to coach, I am so thankful that I could get to know her and watch her grow into the amazing young lady that she has become. (Coach Delcourt
November Athlete of the Month
Jacob Butterfield - Jacob Butterfield deserves to be the athlete of the month. Cross country in its first year since 1996 at MTA is new to all my athletes but Jacob has taken to it like a natural. He has consistently placed in the top 10 in each of our races as our number one runner this year. Jacob is one of my captains and has lead by example in every aspect of practice. Being one of the few true distance runners on the team Jacob puts in 1-2 more miles daily than the rest of the team on his own. Also, if asked to run over the weekend, I can always count on Mr. Butterfield to do exactly as asked.
Jacob has improved steadily throughout the season and has moved from being ranked number 12 all-time fastest XC runner in MTA history to being number 3 all-time fastest XC roadrunner. He placed 6th at the conference meet running a 20 second PR and the next weekend ran a 14 second PR to qualify for states on a tough course. Showing that he can step up to a challenge when the time is right. He recently competed in the state meet and recorded an eighth place finish and another PR. Great job Jacob!! (Coach Boone)
December Athlete of the Month
Maddie Phelps - Maddie is on of our captains on the girls varsity basketball team. She is also a starter and one of the hardest working kids we have ever coached. She goes hard at practice as well as games. She will put in extra time and effort doing work on post moves and shooting. Maddie is also always willing to help the younger players. She helps them learn the system and make the team better. Maddie is currently our leading scorer and rebounder for the team. (Coach Donald)
Nate Luce - Nate has shown great improvement in many ways on the basketball court. He has improved his effort, shooting, rebounding, athleticism, and most importantly has made his teammates better. He has a great attitude and is very coachable. He has been a huge part of our early success thus far. He is currently leading the Mountain Valley Conference with 9.3 rebounds per game. He has had a couple of huge games throughout December. In the Dirigo game he had 31 Points, 17 Rebounds while shooting 76% from the field. Defensively, he held a conference top 6 scorer to 8 points. During our Lisbon game, he had 24 points and 17 rebounds while shooting 75% from the field. His overall stats are 9.3 Rebounds per game (1st in conference), 16.6 Points per game (8th in conference), 3.9 assists, 2.3 steals and 1 block per game. These statistics are great but creating opportunities for others and a great attitude have been his most stand out achievements so far. (COACH ZAMBONI)
January Athlete of the Month
Ian comes to practice ready to work everyday. He is the first one to offer help if needed and if given a task I can rely on him to follow through and get it done. If I ask for hard work, I get hard work but he's also quick to take full advantage of a 'fun practice' and shares his love of skiing with his teammates. He trains during the week and can be found free-skiing on the weekends. He's a great role model for a young team and conducts himself well when the team travels. Most ski teams have 2-3 coaches. As a solo coach, I rely on Ian to give a course report via radio during the girls race, he's been known to run jackets down to the finish and get the other boys to the start in time for their race. Ian makes my job as a coach easier and for that, I am thankful and happy to nominate him as the athlete of the month. (Coach L. Danala)
Abi Wilcox has consistently shown improvement especially in the last month. She has earned a place in the starting lineup even with her broken nose. She is also unselfish and a great teammate. This is all impressive for a freshman athlete. (Coach L. Donald)
February Athlete of the Month
Alex Hemingway personifies the qualities we seek in our Student Athletes. He is the first person on skis every day, and the last person off skis every day. He has put in countless hours over the summer, fall and winter in his pursuit of excellence. In this day of mediocrity he is an example for his peers to look up to and he commands their respect by his actions and deeds. He is very helpful to the other teammates and puts the team first and foremost. He has stepped up his academics to math his athletics and takes care of business. He makes coaching fun and inspires his teammates and coaches to do their best. His improvement from last year has been dramatic and it's been quite a while since we've had THE dominant skier on the race course on any given day. Other coaches comment on how impressive his technique is and how he gets along with his rivals. (Coach Bean)
Emily Kidd has been a leader of the Girl's team and has made a lot of progress this year. Most importantly she has realized how good she can be if she sets her goals and works to accomplish them. Her academics match her athletics and she has made a commitment to train over the summer to achieve her goals. She is deserving of recognition for her leadership. (Coach Bean)
