The Goshen Gladiator Student-Athletes of the Week for January 30 are Varsity Skiers Maggie Larsen and Jacob Lingerman.
Sophomore Maggie Larsen is a first year ski team member. She has been a recreational skier for more than ten years and decided that this year she would try out for the team. Maggie is on the verge of qualifying for the Section IX Championships and is looking to do so in the next couple meets.
Maggie is also a member of our Mock Trial Team, GHS student government, also serves as treasurer of the Leo Club.
Freshman Jacob Lingerman is also a first year Varsity skier and is having a fantastic season. He has been steadily improving throughout the season. Jacob’s favorite event is the giant slalom, which consists of high speeds, sharp turns, and incredible balance. Jacob has already qualified for the Section IX Championships this season.
Jacob was also a member of our JV Soccer team and he volunteers as a referee for youth soccer. He plans on playing lacrosse this spring season for the Gladiators.
Both Jacob and Maggie exhibit tremendous work ethic, teamwork, and sportsmanship. We wish them the best of luck for the remainder of the season.
