Last updated 12/7/2021 at Noon
Outlaws volleyball player Gracie Vohs and cross-country runner Kaleb Briggs have earned a moment in the spotlight for their efforts in elevating their teams to standout performances this fall.
Vohs’ coach, Rory Rush, said, “Gracie was player of the game for our State title game. She was named to the first-team all-state tournament team. She was also voted to the first team for our Oregon west conference.
“Gracie has grown so much this season. She has become an integral part of our offense and brings the spark and energy to the court the team relies on. Her hard work on and off the court as well as her leadership on our team make her the perfect candidate for athlete of the month. Great job, Gracie!”
Cross-country coach Charlie Kanzig praised Briggs.
“Kaleb Briggs played a huge role in the Outlaws’ cross-country team’s fantastic season, which culminated with a second-place finish at the State meet,” he said. “Kaleb stepped into a leadership role on the team, helping mentor a crew of freshman boys, three of whom ended up running at State. Kaleb demonstrated commitment and hard work and embraced the concept of ‘team first’ all season long. He is the kind of person everyone would love to have as a neighbor because of his genuine care for others and his willingness to be of help to others. He concluded his season with a career-best time at State, vaulting the team into second place.”
