There are two sides to every coin, just like there are two kinds of athletes—the ones who train hard and the ones who hardly train. The fruit of both their labor is displayed on game day.

By doing a recap of the Fall Sports, one can deduce that our athletes train hard, very hard, indeed. First, take a look at our Cross Country team, with our top runner, seventh grader, Mia Rodriguez, who has gone beyond expectations, as she finished first out of 160 runners at the Spanish River High School meet in late October. In the boys team, John Prieschl set personal records. He said, “I hope to break TKA’s 5k record in the future, too.”

In Varsity Football, the Lions kicked off their season to a good start by winning their first pre-season games and finished the regular season 8-0, earning top position in their league.

The Varsity Golf team won the national championship, making school history. Varsity golfer, Evan Waldt said, “Golf is a mental sport,” and here’s the reason why. You don’t jump, run, or butt heads with another player, but you do need to have eye-hand coordination, intense focus, stamina and an intense sense of competition. That’s the kind of sportsmanship and skill that makes history.

Speaking of history, the Varsity Swim team made some of their own this season, as they finished runner-up in the district meet. Varsity swimmer, Jonathan Yang said, “My favorite part of the team is the teammates, who encourage one another all the time.”

A difficult part about being a Christian athlete is knowing when to draw the line for the amount of want and determination to beat an opponent. “I believe you should give 100 percent because God blessed you with the ability to do it,” explained senior and varsity volleyball player, Madison Erneston.

Erneston had a bittersweet celebration on Senior Volleyball Night in October, when her coach and peers cheered for her and honored all the hard work and dedication to her team. Erneston’s inspiration is a perfect motivation to any athlete to help them accomplish their goals. Overall, it was a great fall season at TKA.
