Lakehill Athletes Selected for All-District Teams
Coaches from the Texas Association of Private
and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) met recently to bestow the coveted honor of All-District
teams for Varsity Baseball and Varsity Softball.
These awards are particularly meaningful as they are voted on by the other
coaches. Voting focuses on the most deserving athletes and prohibits coaches
from voting for their own players. Lakehill had a fantastic showing, with a
total of 17 honorees.
The following Lakehill students were selected:
All-District: Sarah Baker, Kara Gamboa, Scout
Garnsey, and Eleni
Boles, Jacy Franklin, and Lauren Rosenthal
Mention: Whitney Beckwith, Michaela Rollins, and Josee Santiago
All-District: Chris Good
All-District: Chaz Seeds, Andrew Shaw, and Austin Simpson
Mention: Jonah Guedea, Brett Trutna, and Joshua Wood
Congratulations to these outstanding athletes
on this well-deserved recognition.
Rings and Things
Junior-Senior Ring Day a Time-Honored Tradition While the importance of class rings may have diminished over the years, the Junior Senior Ring Ceremony remains one of the most significant events of the Upper School years.
There has always been a special bond between the junior and senior classes at Lakehill, and this year's group is no exception. Held amidst the elegance of the Warwick
Melrose Hotel, the Junior Senior Ring Luncheon allowed the class of 2010 the opportunity to reflect, to celebrate, and to
pass the torch to Lakehill's next class of leaders. After a recap of
their successful senior year, Senior Class President Simone Novorr
introduced next year's President, Sarah Baker. One by one, members of
the senior class introduced each member of the junior class, paying
tribute to each junior during this special Lakehill rite of passage.
Following the ceremony, seniors returned to campus where they gathered in the Student Commons for the seniors' final countdown to 3:15 pm. Faculty, staff, and students joined them to celebrate this milestone.
Glad for Dads
|Lakehill Initiates New Dad's Club
Dozens of dads filled the Lakehill Auditorium on Tuesday evening for the kick off meeting of the new Lakehill Dad's Club. Although the club is still in its organizational stages, it plans to be up and running by the start of the new school year. The club, which will operate under the banner of the Parent Faculty Club (PFC), will focus on four main components: academic support, community service, infrastructure projects, and social events. For more information, to serve in a leadership position, or to volunteer as a grade level liaison, please contact Reid Parker
. The next general meeting will be held in late August.

|Making Tracks to State |
After qualifying in the District Meet, five members of the
Lakehill Varsity Track team competed in the TAPPS 3A Regional Meet on April 30
in Argyle, Texas. Charles Burch competed in the 400m, Alexis Johnson in the
long jump and 100m, and Kara Gamboa, Jenna Burch, Ayana Heard, and Alexis
Johnson in the 4x100 Relay. Lakehill's relay team knocked out Brook Hill - the
very team that beat them at District - by six hundredths of a second to qualify
for the State Meet.
With a near-perfect performance at the Regional Meet, four
members of the Girls Varsity Track Team are on their way to Waco this weekend. They are
the first Lakehill relay team to run in a State Meet in more than 15 years. The
girls 4X100 relay team of Kara Gamboa, Jenna Burch, Ayana Heard, and Alexis
Johnson will be running the race of a lifetime on Saturday morning, hoping for
a state medal. The Lakehill girls, who were running the
eighth fastest time in the state prior to the Regional Meet, are now running the fourth fastest time
heading into the State Meet. Additionally, relay anchor Alexis Johnson will be
competing in the long jump on Friday.
