Congratulations to Emily Mikkelsen and Garrett Stout for being chosen as PACA Athletes of the Week!
Emily has consistently added new techniques and moved to her attack so as to adjust to opposing defenses keying upon her. In the face of opposing teams putting their best defender on her (and sometimes a double team) Emily scored two goals against Mitchell and three goals (hat trick) against SF Roosevelt. She is earning her reputation as one of the premier goal scorers in the state. In addition to her goal scoring, Emily is a co-captian of the 9-1-1 Lady Govs who currently are ranked number one in the state power point system. With a win at Brookings this week, the Lady Govs can clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Garrett had an outstanding homecoming football game as he broke the school record for passing yards in a game finishing 22-28 for 370 yards and 2 TD’s passing, while also rushing 13 times for 112 yards and 2 TDs. It was a remarkable performance for anyone, more or less someone playing their 4th game as a QB. He is an extremely hard worker and has done a great job learning & improving quickly. He has developed into a great leader and was also named our 4th captain for the Homecoming game due to his leadership this season, and is very deserving of this recognition.
