Announcements and Important Events
The final athletic department award is the John R. Reed Award. This award is named after a former student that passed away at a young age. His parents established this award in his name and wanted to stress academics and leadership in athletics as that was important to their son. Every year, this award is given to a senior athlete that meets these criteria and is voted on by the varsity coaches.
- This year’s John R. Reed recipient is Aiden Grasse. Aiden is one of the 10 CAAC Senior Scholar Athlete Award winners that celebrates high academic achievement while multi-sport participation. Aiden earned 10 varsity letters in Cross Country, Soccer and Track & Field. Aiden achieved All-Academic Awards for each 4 years of participation in high school sports. In the fall of 2017 and 2018, Aiden was voted the Most Valuable Runner by her cross country team and coaches. Aiden was also named to the cross country 2020 CAAC All-League team and named team MVP. During the 2021 Track & Field season, she was named to the All-Conference, All-Region and soon to be All-State teams. Aiden’s track coach, Jon Watson, says “Aiden is good at everything I’ve seen her do because of her attention to details. She sweats all the small things, and then when they add up to something big she is able to excel at the highest levels. At the very heart of all of it, she cares about what she’s doing in the moment. That’s what makes her such a great athlete and such a great person to be around. I can’t wait to see her take her skills and passions to the collegiate level next fall.” Congratulations Aiden Grasse!
