Highlander GMC Athletes of the Week
Congratulations to our Highlander athletes who were named GMC Athletes of the Week!

After missing a week due to injury Jadin returned to help lead the Highlander defense in takeaways with two while the defense totaled 4 takeaways (3 interceptions, 1 turnover on downs). He had 3 total tackles and two interceptions with one key interception in the red zone vs Lakota West.  Holmes is tied 2nd in the GMC for interceptions this season.  
Alex Taft              Fr.            Boys' Cross Country
Alex has been an amazing addition to our team during his freshman year.  From the start, he exceeded our expectations and has been a consistent top 5 runner for us.  Alex was 3rd for the team on Saturday at Ross, helping us to earn a 3rd place finish out of 17 teams, and we look forward to seeing what he can do at the GMC championship.
