Alexis Shumway – Drill – Jordan HS

Lex has gone above and beyond as our head captain. She is able to balance all her responsibilities with the team along with working and keeping up with her school work-she has a 3.9 cumulative gpa. She has taken the time to get to know every teammate on a personal level and is always the first one to arrive to practice and usually the last one leaving due to helping others perfect their skills. We strongly believe we are placing where we are in 6A because of her leadership and dedication to our program and team.

Jacob Halsted – Wrestling – Jordan HS

Jacob has been a model of consistency for JHS Wrestling on the mat, in the classroom, and in the hallways. Jacob is a leader for his team on how to work and win while a friend to all those around him. Jacob won 6 bouts compared to only 1 loss at the Gallegos Invitational at Highland High School earlier this month.

Jacob won the Battle of the Brave at the 170 weight class on Jan 18.
