Grace Sobczak and Andrew King Selected As February Student-Athletes Of The Month

Grace Sobczak and Andrew King Selected As February Student-Athletes Of The Month

Marquette Senior High School, along with Superiorland Kiwanis, are proud to announce that Grace Sobczak (girls swim & dive) and Andrew King (boys swim & dive) have been named as the Student-Athletes of the Month for February 2023.

Grace Sobczak is a junior at MSHS this year and has just finished her third year as a member of the MSHS Girls Swimming & Diving team.

The 2022-2023 swimming and diving season was a remarkable season for both the team, as the Redettes won the MHSAA U.P. Swimming & Diving title, and for Grace as she captured four first place finishes at this year’s finals (200 Medley Relay, 200 I.M., 500 Free, 400 Free Relay). Those results earned Grace All-Upper Peninsula honors for the third consecutive season and also saw her recognized by the MHSAA as the “Performance of the Week”.

The team championship is the team’s second straight and fourth MHSAA U.P. Finals title in five seasons. For Grace, she has now accumulated eight total first place finishes at the MHSAA U.P. Finals after winning two events in both 2022 (200 Medley Relay, 500 Free) and 2021 (500 Free, 200 Free Relay).

Academically, Grace holds a 3.76 cumulative GPA which has her included on the MSHS Honor Roll, French Honor Roll as well as membership in the National Honor Society. Grace is a three-sport student-athlete at MSHS and also participates in the cross country and track & field programs.

Although still a year away, Grace is intending on continuing her education after graduating from MSHS and pursuing collegiate swimming opportunities.

 

Andrew King is a Class of 2023 senior has just wrapped-up an outstanding four-year career on the MSHS Boys Swimming & Diving team.

For the past four years, Andrew has been a key member of a talented group of seniors within the swimming & diving program. His talent, hard work and dedication, along with that of his teammates, has resulted in four consecutive MHSAA U.P. Swimming & Diving championships.

At the 2023 MHSAA U.P. Finals meet, Andrew earned three individual titles (200 Medley Relay, 100 Back, 400 Free Relay) to help the team distance themselves from the competition. In all, Andrew has earned seven total individual U.P. titles after earning three in 2022 (200 Medley Relay, 100 Back, 400 Free Relay) and one in 2021 (200 Medley Relay). Those results have allowed him to be a three-time member of the All-U.P. team over the course of his career.

In the classroom, Andrew owns an impressive 4.26 cumulative GPA to make him an Excellence in Education student and member of the National Honor Society. In addition to swimming, Andrew also participates as a member of the MSHS Varsity Boys Tennis team and Disc Golf Club.

Andrew’s post-graduation plans are to continue his education at a college/university yet to be determined, while pursuing a degree in Fish and Wildlife Management as well as collegiate swimming opportunities.

Helana Sharp is a junior at MSHS this year and is in the midst of a standout year as a member of the gymnastics team.

The 2022-23 gymnastics season marks the third that Helana has qualified for the MHSAA Regional Meet on all four events (bars, beam, floor, vault). In the team’s five competitions this season, Helana has seven total event first place finishes and has twice captured first place in all-around competitions (12/7/22, 1/11/23). Cumulatively, Helana has placed in the top 10 in all events this season and has never finished outside of the top four all-around competitors.

With all of the athletics success that Helana has seen this season and in years past, she is equally accomplished in the classroom with a 3.64 cumulative GPA. Her academic success has made her a regular inclusion on the MSHS Honor Roll and member of the National Honor Society.

Outside of school and practice, Helana works as a gymnastics camp coach and serves as a vacation bible school counselor. While still a year away from graduation, Helana’s post-graduation plans are to attend college and continue her education in business with a focus in marketing.

Luke Mead is a Class of 2023 senior and is working through his final season as a member of the MSHS Wrestling Team.

Luke’s athletics participation has been well-rounded with participation in the football (3 years), wrestling (4 years) and baseball (4 years) programs. The 2022-23 wrestling season marks Luke’s fourth as a varsity team competitor and second straight campaign as a team captain.

After finishing the 2021-22 campaign by having qualified for the MHSAA Regional Meet, Luke put in the work to put himself in a position for a successful senior season. That hard work is coming to fruition with three medalist finishes in major tournaments this season, including a 5th place result at the 2022 Marquette Challenge, 3rd place finish at the 2023 U.P. Championships and last weekend’s 4th place honor at the 2023 Northern Michigan Championships.

In the classroom, Luke owns a 3.66 cumulative GPA and has twice earned U.P. All-Academic Honors as well as consistent membership on the MSHS Honor Roll. He is currently dual-enrolled at NMU for an Associate Degree in Advance Fabrication and Welding.

MSHS becomes the first Upper Peninsula school with an official scholastic mountain biking racing program and just the sixth in the state of Michigan.  Teams will compete in the Wisconsin Interscholastic Cycling League (WICL), which provides structure for the 70+ participating teams and over 2,000 competing athletes in the rapidly growing sport of mountain biking.  The WICL is one of 34 leagues in the country that are approved by the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA).

Practices for the 2023 MSHS Mountain Biking season will begin on or shortly after July 1, 2023.  In order to participate as part of the MSHS Boys/Girls Mountain Biking Teams, student-athletes will need to be entering grades 9-12 at MSHS and have a valid physical form on file (dated on/after April 15, 2023).

Cora Anderson and Max Dawson Selected As November Student-Athletes of the Month

Cora Anderson and Max Dawson Selected As November Student-Athletes of the Month

Marquette Senior High School, along with Superiorland Kiwanis, are proud to announce that Cora Anderson (volleyball) and Max Dawson (boys soccer) have been named as the Student-Athletes of the Month for November 2022.

Cora Anderson is a senior at MSHS and just completed a four-year volleyball career as a team co-captain on this year’s varsity squad.

As the team’s starting middle hitter and one of just five seniors this season, Cora quickly jumped into a leadership role both on and off the court.  Her performance on the court, with a team-leading 136 kills, to go along with 22 aces and 8 blocks, helped the team to a much improved second half of the season where they finished with an above .500 record.  As a result of her play, Cora was named to the All-Great Northern Conference Second Team by conference coaches.

Cora’s work ethic extends into the classroom as well, where she holds a 3.94 cumulative GPA.  This academic standing earned her Academic All-State honors from the Michigan Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association (MIVCA).

Cora has been a true champion of multi-sport participation at MSHS.  In addition to volleyball, she also participates as a member of the Varsity Girls Basketball, Varsity Softball and Girls Track & Field Teams.  As a junior during last spring’s track & field season, Cora was the Great Northern Conference champion in the shot put.

With a strong commitment to service, Cora serves others as a member of the MSHS National Honor Society, a peer mentor for students with special needs, a volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters, while also spending time with the elderly.  Cora’ post-graduation plans are to continue her athletics and academic career at St. Norbert College, where she plans to compete as a member of the Green Knights Women’s Basketball Team.

Max Dawson is a senior student at MSHS and just concluded a remarkable and record-setting career as part of the Boys Soccer program.

In all, Max has spent all four years as a Striker on the MSHS Varsity Boys Soccer Team.  Each of those seasons, including the 2022 season, ended the same way with the team capturing the U.P. Championship.  This year’s U.P. title made for the program’s 15th straight, with the team finishing with a 21-2-2 record and unbeaten in their last 22 games.

Many of the team’s wins over the last four years have come as a result of plays made from Max’s feet.  At the conclusion of his junior season, Max set a school record for “goals in a season” when he poured in 39 during the 2021 campaign.  This year, Max set a new school record for “goals in a career” and also eclipsed the century mark by finishing with 102 career goals.

In addition to soccer, Max is also a member of the MSHS Boys Bowling and Boys Track & Field Teams.  During Max’s, during his sophomore track season, he was part of the school record setting 400 Meter Relay Team.

Through all of his success, Max has remained a team-centered leader set on continuous improvement and helping to leave the program set up for future success.

Monet Argeropoulos and Braden Ketzenberger Selected As October Student-Athletes of the Month

Marquette Senior High School, along with Superiorland Kiwanis, are proud to announce that Monet Argeropoulos (girls cross country) and Braden Ketzenberger (boys cross country) have been named as the Student-Athletes of the Month for October 2022.

Monet Argeropoulos is a sophomore at MSHS and recently wrapped-up her second successful season as a member of the Varsity Girls Cross Country team.

After pacing the team as a freshman with a 12th place finish at the 2021 MHSAA U.P. Division 1 Finals, Monet returned as a sophomore to take her running to the next level for the 2022 season. This was evident when Monet captured first place and was crowned as the individual champion at the 2022 Great Northern Conference (GNC) Meet. As a follow-up, she then placed fourth at the 2022 MHSAA U.P. Division 1 Finals.

In a girls cross country season where every place mattered in many of the team competitions, Monet’s finishes proved crucial in leading the team to another GNC championship and taking back the MHSAA U.P. Division 1 title after a two year hiatus.

At season’s end, Monet had her efforts recognized when she earned places on the All-State, Academic All-State, All-U.P. and All-GNC Teams. This season marks her second consecutive season earning these accolades.

Monet is a three-sport varsity student-athlete and also competes as a member of the MSHS Girls Nordic Skiing and Girls Track & Field teams. In the classroom, she owns a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA and is a consistent member of the MSHS Honor Roll.

Outside of school, Monet volunteers time with the Superiorland Ski Club’s Ski Cats program as well as Marquette’s Petunia Pandemonium effort. Although still two years away, Monet’s post-high school plan is to continue her education, potentially in the area of Occupational Therapy.

Braden Ketzenberger is a senior student at MSHS and just concluded an outstanding season and career as part of the Boys Cross Country program.

Of the eight events on the 2022 cross country schedule, Brady turned in a team-leading six Top-Five finishes. Those finishes include third place finishes at both the 2022 Great Northern Conference (GNC) Meet and 2022 MHSAA U.P. Division 1 Finals.

Brady’s steadiness at the front of the pack was invaluable to this year’s talented team that saw the group again take first place at the GNC Meet and earn the program’s fourth consecutive MHSAA U.P. Division 1 Championship.

After turning in a second consecutive season with a Top-10 performance at both the GNC Meet and MHSAA U.P. Division 1 Finals, Brady’s athletics performance this fall again earned him All-State, Academic All-State, All-U.P. and All-GNC accolades.

In addition to cross country, Brady also competes as a member of the Wrestling and Boys Track & Field teams at MSHS. As a junior wrestler, Brady was named to the Academic All-U.P. Wrestling team. On the track, Brady is a member of the reigning MHSAA U.P. Division 1 Champion 3200 Meter Relay Team.

In the classroom, Brady owns a 4.23 cumulative GPA. Outside of school, he enjoys philosophy, fishing and chess. Brady’s post-graduation plans are to continue his education with an area of study focused on either Chemical Engineering or Neuroscience.
