Congratulations to the Hillsboro High School
January Student-Athletes of the Month:
Tayler Weberling – (Cheerleading & Dance)
Senior Tayler Weberling is a member of the Cheerleading and Dance teams. Coach Easley said of Tayler, “For the 2016-17 basketball season Tayler has been doing both cheer and poms. She approached me in November with her desire to participate in both activities even with the knowledge of just how much time and dedication each team would expect from her. She has been a wonderful addition to the team. She works great with the other cheerleaders and coaches, she is willing to do anything that is asked of her, and never complains even on the days when she finishes a practice with the pommies and has to jump straight onto a bus with us to spend another couple hours practicing and cheering on the basketball team. The only regret I have with the addition of Tayler to our team is that she didn’t approach me with her idea sooner. It has been wonderful to see an athlete get to participate in two things that she loves.” Tayler carries a 3.83 GPA and plans on attending Jefferson College next year.
Michael Brewer – (Boys Basketball)
Sophomore, Michael Brewer is a member of the boy’s basketball team. Coach Johnson said of Michael, “Michael Brewer averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds in the month of January while shooting 71% from the field and 77% from the free throw line. The Hawks were 7-2 in January while playing some of the toughest competition of the season. Michael is currently leading our team in field goal percentage and steals, and is second in points, rebounds and free throw percentage.” Michael carries a 3.33 GPA in the classroom and is a member of the baseball team in the spring.
