H2 STL 15 Black Setter State Award Recognition

Congratulations to H2 STL 15 Black setter Sarah Gingrich! Sarah earned the 2018 Southern Illinois Junior High School Athletic Association Jim Burnes Leadership Award. Competition for this award is based on the following criteria: GPA, sports participation, community activities, specific honors, a typed essay, and recommendations from inside the school and the community. As you can expect, the selection process is highly competitive. Sarah was selected amongst her peers at Wolf Branch Middle School to represent Region 6. The overall accomplishment being one of 10 selected among over 9,400 eligible students within 160 schools in the SIJHSAA is an outstanding achievement. As her coach, I can concur that Sarah is an exceptional leader on and off the court. This is Sarah’s first year setting for me and her H2 STL 15 Black team. Coach Jenna, your teammates and I would like to say, “great job Sarah, well done and a well-deserved honor.”
