Teryl states, “High School sports have been an integral part of the last four years of my life, teaching me about teamwork, sportsmanship, pride, leadership and commitment ….Competition occurs in all aspects of life, and sports have prepared me to deal with all possible outcomes of such competition.  I have learned life lessons, and have the skills to stay physically fit for the rest of my life.  Without high school sports, I would not be the same individual I am today.”
