    As fall sports season is approaching, student-athletes are feeling the effects of a busy schedule mixed with lengthy assignments. Prioritizing a quality GPA is a key element to a successful season. To recognize how our athletes handle both academics and athletics, we asked them this: How do you maintain good grades while excelling in your sport?

     

    “Time management and I always put my academics first,” Abby Heilman (Volleyball).

     

    “I really try to manage my time, ” Aj Seals (Football and Boys’ Soccer).

     

    “I do as much work as I can in any free time I have in class. I also do all the extra work I usually do on bus rides. Other than that, I stay up really late doing all my work and studying for any tests I have,” Chance Funari (Golf).

     

    “I maintain good grades by doing my homework on the bus, getting it done when I have free time in school, and making sure I stay on top of my work so I don’t have like a big workload every single night,” Harper Moores (Girls’ Soccer).

     

    “You have to really focus on your class work, that is the biggest thing. You know, making sure you’re studying, making sure you’re not putting all your time and effort into your sport,” Hunter Means (Football). 

     

    “Maintaining good grades is all about time management while playing my sport. So, after football practice, you know I take my time to eat and recover and stuff, but you know I also do homework at that time. Throughout the school day, you don’t want to be on your phone too much, you wanna concentrate on your school work,” Jameson Maynard (Football).

     

    “I just make sure to stay ahead of my work so I don’t fall behind,” Lydia Riddle (Girls’ Soccer).

     

     “I manage my time well and I try to do my homework in my free time,” Sammie Ashmore (Volleyball).

     

    “I think it’s all about using your time wisely to study and do your homework,”Samuel Rockey (Boys’ Soccer).

     

    “I just study in my free time and any chance I get,” Max Seibert (Boys’ Soccer).
