FEBRUARY ATHLETE OF THE MONTH HONORS
#12 Lia Sabatino
February’s female athlete of the month is Lia Sabatino from the Lady Knights basketball team. Varsity Coach Katie Ihrie describes Lia as “A force to be reckoned with on and off the court. Everyday whether it be at practice or in a game, Lia gives it her all right to the last minute. Even through an injury she did what she could to be with the team and help in anyway she could. Lia makes us all laugh and makes sure all the players know they are all a valued.” As a freshman Lia was an impact defender all season for the Lady Knights and shows excellent potential in the coming seasons.
Boys Basketball Coaches Chris Banquecer and Michael Earl nominated Travis Nunnally as the Male Athlete of the Month representing the Boys Basketball team. Coach Banquecer described Nunnally as, "one of the best players this season who really stepped up as a vocal leader on the court and motivating his teammates. He has shown throughout the year the heart and desire he plays with on the court. He brings his emotions to the game and has really shown our younger players the professionalism needed to be a good basketball player."
