Boys swim and dive 

Coach Taylor Birsa says, “I am proud of the boys working hard, supporting each other, and overcoming injury when one popped up. They each have shown improvement not just physically, but mentally as well…They were challenged with new events this year to get out of their comfort zone. They all took that challenge head-on, with a bit of hesitation, but realized it was not that bad! Some even stuck with those events for the next few meets which was amazing to watch.” The boys had 12 meets this season. The boys finished 2nd at the CMAC Conference meet with 365 points.



Coach Haskell says, “I am super proud of how these young ladies battled all season. They could have cashed it in but they never gave up and they fought for each other all year…They got better every day and took care of each other and made our team a family. They made such an impression on me by the way they handled themselves all season.” The girls had 18 games this season and won a total of 9 games.


Girls Golf 

Coach Johnson says, “I was most proud of how these young ladies continued to improve throughout the season. They competed at a high level and represented Hickman very well…Their resiliency was admirable. Some of our players overcame sickness, and personal battles but never backed down from competition. For my one senior I wish her all the best with her future aspirations and for my returners I want them to remember to always practice with a purpose in the game of golf and life.” The girls placed in the top half of 3 tournaments with 15 to 21 schools.


Coach Gunn, the Hickman High School head volleyball coach, stated “I am proud of the players for working so hard trying to grow and develop as individuals and as a team, and for representing our school with pride. The thing that impressed me most about this year’s team was their willingness to stretch their comfort levels by putting the interests of the team before their own personal interests. What I would like to say to the team is that I am humbled to be blessed with the honor and privilege to serve as their coach. I am asked every year, ‘When are you going to retire?’ My answer is always, ‘When it stops being fun.’ The primary purpose of sports for me is to have fun and experience joy. These players have given me that joy, and I am truly thankful for that.” They finished their season with a record of 18-12-5.
