This 5’11” long jumper and sprinter recently won and broke the junior varsity girls long jump, with a jump of 4.88 meters, at the KPAC indoor meet.  Coach Edward Pieczonka states, “Rebekah recognizes that she is blessed with physical gifts (height and strength), that the average 15 year old female does not have. With this though she displays tremendous humility and is always willing to seek constructive criticism and act on it, with a mindfulness that is always oriented toward personal growth”. 

This grade 10 student also participates in volleyball.
