Athletes of the Week

This week, we have two athletes of the week.

First up is our Eagle Storm broomball player and junior Megan Cunningham.  Megan plays Mad-dog for the team and has four goals from the defensive position.  She also has countless blocked goals, over 12 assists, and is a team captain.  According to Head Broomball Coach Taylor Favorite:  “On and off the ice, Megan is adaptable and dependable. On the ice, Megan plays any position that the team needs and adapts to any situation to be a leader for her team.  Off the ice, Megan is dependable by doing whatever necessary to make the team thrive and the team can always count on her to be a leader. Megan is always respectful to her coaches, teammates, opponents and officials, and we get compliments about her from other coaches and opponents, not only because of her skills on the ice, but because of her positive attitude and respectful nature.”

Next up is indoor track and field distance runner and junior Lauryn Mick.

Lauryn is the team’s top distance runner and continues to excel.  She qualified for this Saturday’s Indoor Track & Field State Championship in both the 1600 and 3200 meter runs.  This is the third year in a row that Lauryn has qualified to the Indoor Track & Field State Championship!  According to Head Indoor Track & Field Coach Ray Strassner: “It is Lauryn’s discipline to train and her determination to excel that drives her.  Lauryn listens to the meet strategy and is a smart runner.  This will take her far both at NDA and beyond.”

Congratulations to Megan Cunningham and Lauryn Mick, this week’s Athletes of the Week!

Next up is varsity basketball player and senior Kristyn Hibbett.

Kristyn’s positive energy has played a major role in the varsity team’s success this season.  Her performance all season long has earned her Honorable Mention All-TRAC and All-District.

According to Head Varsity Basketball Coach Travis Galloway:  “Kristyn is a natural leader and exemplifies virtues on and off the court.  Her determination, effort, persistence and patience has helped our team to another conference championship.  I am forever grateful to have had a chance to not only coach such a remarkable player, but to have been blessed to have been around such a remarkable person.  Kristyn has definitely left her legacy in our program, as well as the NDA community.”

Happy Chinese New Year!

We want to wish everyone, especially our International students, Happy Chinese New Year!

Here is some information about this important holiday.

Chinese New Year, which is also called the Lunar New Year or ‘Spring Festival’, is China’s most important festival and holiday time. Chinese New Year 2019 falls on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, beginning a year of the Pig. China’s public holiday will be February 4–10, 2019.

The main Chinese New Year activities include 1) putting up decorations, 2) eating reunion dinner with family on New Year’s Eve, 3) firecrackers and fireworks, and 4) giving red envelopes and other gifts.

Every street, building, and house where Spring Festival is celebrated is decorated with red. Red is the main color for the festival, as red is believed to be a lucky color. Red Chinese lanterns hang in streets; red couplets are pasted on doors; banks and official buildings are decorated with red New Year pictures depicting images of prosperity.
