It was exciting this last week as two of our athletes signed their letters of intent to play college sports.  Aubri Braecklein committed to play golf at Georgia State University and Kate Giblin signed with Allen Community College in Iola, Kansas.  Congratulations!  You can check out pictures from their signing on our Instagram (@jefferson_academy_athletics) or Twitter (@JA_Athletics).

More honors were handed out this last month to our JA Cross Country Team:

  • Ben Hershelman was voted the Metro League Boys XC Coach of the Year after leading his team to a first-place finish.
  • Jacob Crookston was named Boys Runner of the Year in the Metro League capping an outstanding high school career.
  • Jacob Crookston and Maya Ross both earned All State Honorable Mention
  • Jacob, Maya, and Evan Mills all received All Region Honorable Mention from Boco Preps
  • Jacob, Maya, Evan, and Sean Beasley all received First Team All-League.  Noah Douglas and Jocelyn Farhar earned Second Team, and Sarah Welsch made Honorable Mention.

Way to go, Jags!
