Congratulations to Aubre Westover along with Jett Zabel and Matthew Coverdale for being selected as PACA Athlete’s of the week.
Aubre Westover (gymnastics): In Rapid City Westover was the Beam Co-Champion, she placed 2nd on Vault and 4th on Floor. Westover’s scores helped the Governor Gymnastics team earn another season high team score of 131.40. Westover has been consistent on beam this season, having only 1 fall in 6 meets. She had a career high beam score at the Hub City Invitational, in Aberdeen, earning her one of three in season qualifying scores needed to prequalify for this year’s state tournament in Watertown. Westover makes a point to encourage the underclassmen on the team and leads by example. Westover has done a great job balancing her gymnastics schedule, academic commitments and work. She is part of the Gov2Gov program and works hard in school, taking multiple dual credit and AP classes. She was on the 1st quarter 4.0 honor roll. She also maintains a part-time job during the school year/gymnastics season.
Jett Zabel and Matthew Coverdale (Weight Room): Both boys are doing everything they can to improve as athletes. They have been religious about showing up to the weight room at 5:30 in the morning 3-4 days a week depending on when they have basketball games. They are always on time and the coaches can count on them to do every rep of every lift they have to do. It is extremely difficult to get up that early in the morning, but they can always count on them showing up and getting better.
