  • Student Athletes of the Week

    Congratulations to all of our fall student athletes of the week.  Rounding out the month of October were:

    • McKinley Rogers-- McKinley was undefeated in conference play for the Lady Jets tennis team and qualified to play in the regional tournament. She does a great job in the classroom.
    • George Jacinto--George is a great student and has a wonderful personality. He works hard in the classroom and on the track. George never wants to see anyone quit and will put in extra work running to help someone else get across the finish line.
    The student athlete of the week for November 3-11
    • Inocente Mondragon--Inocente gave his all during the State Soccer Playoffs and deserves recognition for his sacrifice, leadership, and maturity. During the third round of the playoffs, Inocente led his team to victory after two overtimes and winning the game on penalty kicks. He was seriously injured during this game but despite that he helped to rally his teammates to go on to win, and advance to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs. He exemplifies The Jets Way through his fortitude, his sacrifice, and leadership on and off the ball. A true Jet. 
    Myriah Fox and Kevin Cano are the student athletes of the week for November 13-20.
    • Myriah contributes so much to the cheer team. She never misses a practice or game. She is determined to be better, has the ability to create cheers, and helps any cheer mates. She never complains and always has the drive to become better and try new things. She represents Jordan-Matthews with pride and always goes above and beyond. 
    • Kevin is 1 of 12 returning wrestlers from last year's roster; he constantly leads by example in the wrestling room.  He had a key win by pinning his opponent in our win over Williams in our season opener. He is a humble young man that has respect for his teammates.

  • Congrats to JM Athletes of the Week Emery Moore and Tucker Bean!

    Student Athletes of the Week from September 4-8 are Emery Moore and Tucker Bean.

    Emery plays tennis as a number three seed. She is a competitor, and is undefeated at her seeded positions (both singles and doubles). Tucker exhibits exceptional leadership both on and off the field. As a student, he excels in academic achievement and models kind and respectful behavior. He addresses adults with "Yes sir" and "Yes ma'am". As an athlete, he models outstanding leadership through team play, perseverance, hard work, and verbal encouragement to his fellow teammates. Tucker has served his team through consistent effort and excellent fulfillment of his position responsibilities on both sides of the ball as an offensive and defensive lineman. He is a pleasure to coach and an inspiration to all.
