From the Sideline

Jillian is all about team. She helped the varsity’s preparations for the jamboree this past weekend by her willingness to do what’s needed. Jill’s ability to play multiple positions allows the defense to better dominate opponents. She has helped build our team culture for the season by organizing team meals and secret sisters for games. An athlete like this can only make your team unity stronger. Jill is also on the golf team, maintains a 3.8 GPA in honors classes and is a leader, on and off the field.
