Bishop Watterson seniors recently announced their intent to play sports in college. “We are happy for this group of talented seniors, that their hard work has resulted in an opportunity to play sports in college,” said BWHS Athletic Director Mike Roark. “Their Bishop Watterson community wishes them well as they enter the world of college athletics and we will continue to pray for them.”
The athletes reflected on their paths to college athletic programs and the support they received along the way. “I thank God every day for the opportunity I have been given and will continue in my faith practices for the rest of my life after leaving Bishop Watterson,” said Kayla Cook.
“My Catholic school experience has influenced me in how to be a positive leader to my teammates by always encouraging them and pushing them to be the best they can be,” said Andy Elberson. “It also taught me the importance of sportsmanship and how crucial it is to always represent your school in a positive manner.” “My Catholic faith has influenced me in soccer to show sportsmanship, to help my teammates and to be a team player,” said Gabriel Byorth.
