Eagles Boosters recognize outstanding March 2015 THS athletes at luncheon
The Templeton High School (THS) March 2015 Athletes of the Month were recently recognized at a special lunch co-sponsored by the THS Eagles Athletic Boosters and Chulo’s Café & Cantina.
The March 2015 THS Athletes of the Month in alphabetical order are: Katie Murphee, MJ Torgerson, Brodan Willison, and Amanda Wilson.
The award winning athletes were nominated for athletic excellence combined with traits that foster excellence. Some of those qualities may include leadership, work ethic, attitude, and citizenship, coupled with how well the nominee juggles athletics with various other responsibilities and interests in their lives – including academics, extracurricular activities, work, and community service.
Freshman Katie Murphee plays Varsity Softball. “Katie has shown a high degree of skill, a willingness to listen and has been an outstanding teammate in supporting her fellow Eagles,” wrote Athletic Director Lindsay Campana. “She is leading the team in RBI’s, is tied for the team lead in hits, and seems to be in the middle of every rally.”
Junior MJ Torgerson is on the THS Golf Team. Athletic Director Lindsay Campana shared, “MJ has provided leadership through his play on the golf course and his ability to keep the team loose and having fun traveling to and from matches. MJ’s personality allows him to easily mix with coaches and players from all schools in our league.”
Sophomore Brodan Willison is on the JV Baseball Team. Head Coach Tim Alvord had this to say, “Brodan’s attitude, work habits and on-field performance have been exemplary. He has been the model of a good teammate.”
Sophomore Amanda Wilson is on the Eagles Swim Team. “Amanda works hard, attends every practice and has won every individual event she has swam this season,” said Head Coach Caitlin Neil. “She has a positive, upbeat attitude and is a vital member of the team.”
The THS Athletes of the Month program is sponsored by the THS Eagles Athletic Boosters and Chulo’s Café & Cantina, nominations and athlete logistics are coordinated by THS Athletic Director Lindsay Campana, and the overall event is coordinated.
