 “You get out of it, what you put into it” describes Cade Miller, team captain. District finalist last year was just a stepping stone in his quest to be number one. He has trained hard off season every season and is now reaping what he has sowed. Confidence and grit. He has already this season proved he has the potential to be on many podiums. This past Friday Cade went 3-0 in the David Douglas Duals beating one opponent that was a returning state place winner.

Girls:

Ashley Kosmicki – Basketball – Newberg HS

3.68 GPA

Ashley has been the most committed basketball player in our program for three years. She is having a great start to her Junior season as she has been a consistent performer on the offensive end but more importantly on the defensive end of the floor. Her effort on defense is infectious within our program. That effort she gives on the floor is what Ashley is all about.

Ashley embodies what it means to be a student-athlete. She is as dedicated in the classroom as she is on the court. She takes honors classes and maintains a stellar academic standing. 

Ashley is a great role model for young kids in our community. I can always count on Ashley when it comes to being present at any volunteer opportunities that we have during the year.

Ashley is a more than deserving student athlete of the month for Newberg High School.

We are looking forward to seeing her challenge herself and continue to be an asset to our program both in and out of the pool.

Kaylie Brown – Swimming – Lakeridge HS

Kaylie, a senior on the West Linn girls soccer team, has an incredible work rate that has helped the Lions stay competitive on both offense & defense.
