Congratulations to Jasmine Rounds and Deegan Houska for being chosen as PACA-Avera’s Athletes of the Week! Here are their nominations:
Jasmine Rounds (gymnastics): Senior, Jasmine Rounds has been a consistent beam score for the Governor Gymnastics team this season. Her floor routine helped the team to qualify for State this year. In practice, she can always be found working hard to improve her routines, vaults and skills. She added a layout salto dismount to her bar routine and a tuck saltos to her tumbling passes on floor. She is always the first to volunteer to help move equipment and is a great role model for younger gymnasts in the gym.
Deegan Houska (Wrestling) – Deegan went 2-0 in duals this past weekend in duals versus Mitchell and Watertown. In the Mitchell dual he defeated Brandon Sparks with a 10-3 decision. In the Watertown dual Deegan pinned Cael Sutton in 1:28 providing a much needed spark for the Governors. Deegan has been a very consistent top performer over the course of the year. His explosiveness makes him a very fun wrestler to watch.
