Celine de Villa (Cheerleading) – “As a freshman on the Cheer Team, Celine exudes: grace, leadership, poise, and radiates everything a KSJC Cheerleader should be. She is a constant reminder to her teammates that no matter how difficult learning new cheers are, how cold it may be outside, or how hard it may be to perform for the first time, that you must keep pushing forward. She is a positive light both on the team as well as a student in all her classes. She is the loudest person on the floor, demonstrates natural leadership, and has led the team to bring out the best in each other.” – Coach Tactac
Emily Ha (Girls Basketball) – “This is Emily’s 4th year playing basketball and she is a leader on and off the court. Emily has worked hard to earn her spot through the years, being coachable and working hard. Though quiet in nature, her confidence and leadership by example has propelled her to improve her skills in rebounding allowing her to play one of the most minutes for the Wolfpack. She excels in the classroom as well which makes her an exemplar and the epitome of what it means to be a student-athlete.” Coach Dela Rosa
Anita Lara (Girls Soccer) – “Anita is only one of 3 seniors on the team this year and as such, she has taken on the responsibility of being our team captain and mentor to our new crop of 9th grade players. Anita has been able to maintain a positive outlook during games even in the face of defeat. She has also been a crucial component of our offense and has scored twice already in our pre-season games. Anita is gearing up to be, once again, a force to be reckoned with on and off the field this year.” – Coach Arámbula
Isaias Luna (Boys Soccer) – “Isaias has started the year incredibly strong, and has been an integral part to keeping the team afloat with 3 key injuries to the back line. In 4 games, Isaias has an average of 1.0 goals against per game. He has made a plethora of key saves to keep us in games, including saving both penalty kick attempts taken on him this year. The improvement he has shown between his freshmen and sophomore year has been tremendous.” – Coach McCormack
Tyler Thai (Boys Basketball) – “Despite starting the season off dealing with personal issues, Tyler has never made an excuse. Tyler has gone from having a bench role to earning a starting spot on the team. Tyler started the year off extremely quiet during practices and games. He has improved drastically and is now one of my most reliable shooters in the team. Tyler has put a special focus on being more vocally active which has allowed him to improve his game. He has also worked hard every day at practice to improve his defense. Tyler embodies the type of athlete every coach wants to teach. He has been a pleasure to coach this year. This is why Tyler Thai is my athlete of the Month”- Coach Sunny
