East coaches name Athletes of the Month

Girls Field Hockey — Coach Ruchalski

I nominate Hope Abramowski who is a senior at East for Athlete of the month. Hope gives 100% always and is always positive. She has great speed, which is troublesome for most defenders. She scored the game-winning goal in overtime against Hamburg and scored in our shootout win vs. Will North.

Boys Soccer — Coach Sztaba

I nominate Daniel Walters who is a junior at East Sr. for Athlete of the Month. Dan has strived for improvement this year. He has excelled his game and the game of the players around him. He is Developing into a leader on the team and has become a crucial player for the team at center back.

Girls Tennis — Coach Prynn

I nominate Abby Wesolowski who is in ninth grade at East Sr. for Athlete of the Month. Abby joined tennis late, got all her practices in, and was able to help us defeat Maryvale late in the season as a team in her varsity debut. We had lost to them 5-0 the first time we played them.

Cross Country — Coach Pepero

I nominate two students for Athlete of the Month to represent East Sr. for Cross Country 2020: Hunter Jurek and Sean McCartan. Hunter and Sean have been nominated for athlete of the month for Varsity Cross Country for their dedication, determination and hard work. As captains of the cross-country team, both Hunter and Sean have been instrumental to their team’s success. Their positive attitudes, perseverance, and work ethic has shown not only on the track/cross country course, but in the classroom as well. Hunter and Sean represent what the varsity cross country team is about, and Coach Page and I could not be more proud.

Girls Soccer — Coach Ackerman

I nominate Lindsey Garbacz, who is a senior captain, for Athlete of the Month for East Sr. girls soccer. Lindsey always gives 100% at both practices and games. She is a team player and leads the teams in goals this year. She has been on the varsity team for all four of her high school years.
