February Athlete of the Month
Congratulations Raekwon Noel DeRyck (Swim) on being selected as Athlete of the Month for February 2022!
"Raekwon is new to Highland Swimming this year, but not new to the sport. He has proven to be a tremendous swimmer and is full of team spirit. Raekwon broke 2 school records this year which were set in the 1990s. Raekwon is also the first swimmer to qualify for States in the last 7 years."- Coach Gratton
Congratulations to all our February nominees!
Garrett Prendergast - Wrestling
Garrett had an amazing month of February. His month started with a big win against district rival Timber Creek, then was followed by a pin against Woodstown to clinch the first Conference Championship for the wrestling team since 2014. Garrett then went on to win 10 of his next 12 matches, culminating with him being crowned District Champion at 113 lbs.
Breelynn Leary - Girls Basketball
Breelynn worked very hard this year to lead our team in the face of adversity. She led our team in scoring and in steals. Her efforts were apparent as she was the leading vote getter for the Liberty division with 38 of 40 possible points as well as being voted to the All Group III team by South Jersey Coaches.
Cortland Webb - Winter Track
Cortland always shows up to practice and works hard. Because of his work ethic, he has consistently broken personal bests throughout the course of the month. This led Cortland to a fifth place finish in the mile at the Group 3 South Sectional Championships. He is also a part of a 4x800 meter relay team that qualified for the Meet of Champions.
Evan Carbone - Boys Basketball
Evan has been a solid player for our team for the past 3 seasons and had a very good last month of this season. He has been a 2 year captain. He is a reliable, hard working student who does all the right things.
