Area Nominees:

Boys:

Stephen Wynne – Soccer – Highland

Stephen is a team captain and is embodying that role. Stephen has now voluntarily played 3 positions for the sole purpose of helping the team win. He’s scored 2 goals and has 1 assist, but those stats don’t speak to the value he brings to the team. His hard work and leadership are not something that we’ll be able to easily replace next season.

Aiden Martin – Cross Country – Buckeye

Aiden has stepped up this season as a senior varsity member of the cross country team. He recently set his lifetime 5k personal record of 17:59, finishing 20th at the Medina Cross Country Festival.

Gavin Beck – Soccer – Buckeye

Gavin had 1 Goal and 3 Assists as an outside defender on the boys soccer team this month. He also volunteers as a coach and helps with the local Buckeye Travel Soccer Association.

Female:

Amaya Nutter – Cheerleading – Buckeye

Amaya is an exceptional individual that always has a smile on her face. She is a great leader and looked up to by many. She is legally blind and doesn’t allow that to deter her from being her best and being on of the best Cheerleaders that Buckeye has in both ability and character! Amaya most recently passed her driving test in a special program that she wears special glasses to see like those without visual impairments. I am blessed to be able to Coach a wonderful young lady that emulates the true character of not only a leader for Buckeye Cheerleading but the entire Community.

Isabella Goyette – Golf – Highland

The reasons Isabella is being nominated for “September Athlete of the Month” are many. As a freshman, she has quickly become the #1 player on the team. She has participated in (5) nine hole matches and (14) eighteen hole tournaments and scored for the team in all (19) events. In addition, she was medalist in (2) of the nine hole matches and (4) of the eighteen hole tournaments. In those (14) tournaments, the total number of players ranged from (36) to (70). She has been a major factor in the team’s 4-1 nine hole record, for the team taking 1st place in (8) out of the (14) eighteen hole tournaments, winning the six team Suburban League American Conference, and winning the first post season sectional tournament at Fox Den.

Isabella is also a coach’s dream. She is always positive and never gets down on herself for a bad shot or a bad hole. She is very modest about her successes and opponents from other teams enjoy playing with her. She is receptive to new ideas, appreciative of all our efforts, and very respectful of all coaches, opponents, officials, and the game. Isabella is a cheerleader for all of her teammates and encourages any teammate who is having a difficult day.
She also has an excellent understanding of the arcane and sometimes confusing USGA rules of golf. She knows the rules better than most seniors and sometimes opposing coaches too.

Isabella has already moved into the elite class of Highland Girls’ golfers since the program’s inception in 2007. Isabella shot an amazing “three under par” (32) at Ellsworth Meadows par (35) on 9/16/20. Only two other scores in our history have been lower and only by one stroke. Both of those scores were four under par. This led the team to tie for 3rd place all-time team nine hole score of (+2).

Also, only two other players in Highland girls’ golf history have had ”lower season averages” than Isabella. The “season average” is calculated by using 9-hole matches and breaking all (18) hole tournaments into nine hole segments. Isabella’s season’s average is an awesome (37.4) heading into district tournament play next Tuesday.
