    NAME: Adrian Baugh

    GRADE: 12th

    SPORT: Basketball

    ACCOMPLISHMENTS DURING JANUARY

    Three 30 point games. Surpassed 1000 points for his career by scoring 20 in 3 quarters vs Frontier 2/3. He now has exactly 1000. 

    QUOTE ABOUT ATHLETE FROM COACH

    Adrian's growth and maturity on and off the court has been unbelievable. As a coach I'm not sure if there is anything that can make you more proud than seeing one of your guys grow as a young man like he has. I believe his growth off the court and in other areas outside of basketball is what has helped him find this amazing groove he is in on the court.
