Bevan Serna - SOTW

Bevan has been a spectacular athlete for our team this season. He shows up at every practice on time and works very hard to better himself and his teammates. I often notice Bevan helping younger throwers with their technique after he has completed his workout. He gives maximum effort at every competition. Bevan is our number #1 discus and shot put thrower. He is mature, confident, and gives of himself for the benefit of the team. I wish I could clone him. – Neville Anderson, Head Coach Varsity Track & Field

Jane Frierson - SOTW

Jane is another spectacular athlete for our team. She shows up on time at each and every practice. Jane has worked to transform herself into one of our best athletes. She runs the 100m, the 200m, long jumps, and the 4×200 relay. I believe that on her current trajectory of improvement in the sprints, she will be considered one of the best athletes in the state in the near future. On our team of stars, Jane holds her own.& she is another athlete I would clone.– Neville Anderson, Head Coach Varsity Track & Field

In 1981, the Rolling Stones sang “A smile relieves a heart that grieves.” Now, research is showing this to be true. Even a “fake smile” tricks the brain and causes the release of happiness hormones. Watch this interesting video to learn even more about this. AND if you want to learn other ways to increase your happiness, read this brief article to learn how to trigger the release of your happiness hormones- Serotonin, Dopamine, Oxytocin, and Endorphins.
