Congratulations to Jensen Clifford (Boys Basketball) and Jessica Ellis (Girls Basketball) for being selected as the Athletes of the Month for February. Both Student-Athletes led their respective teams to the 5A State Playoffs.
Jensen is a Senior on this years basketball team. He was selected as one of the team Captains and started in every game this year. He led the Knights back to the State Playoffs which they hadn’t made for the past 3 seasons. Coach Johnson had this to say about him. “Jensen is a great kid, and very easy to coach. He will do whatever is asked of him on and off the court. He has been a great leader all season and I know he will be successful in whatever he does”.
Jessica is a Senior on this years basketball team. She is a 2 year starter and one of the leaders on the team. Jessica helped the lady knights return to the State Playoffs where they hadn’t been since 2004. Coach Smith had this to say about her. “Jessica has been a blast to coach these past few years. She always brings everything she has to the court. Other players on the team feed off her emotion. She was an intricate part in helping build this program up”.
