Multiple Teams · 2019 Scholar Athletes


This award is earned by the senior student athletes (one male and one female) who have the highest GPA in their class while participating in at least two varsity- level sports.

Our female scholar athlete is Sadie Kornoelje.  Sadie runs Cross Country and Track for the Eagles. Her coaches report that last year, Sadie was scheduled to run the 4×400 3 times, and all 3 times it rained and the meet was delayed/postponed.  Sadie and Maggie Vander Woude have the Grand Rapids Elite Challenge record in the 2×200, which is not a real event, but they still have the record.  Congratulations Sadie on being such a great example of a dedicated student-athlete! Our male scholar athlete is Christian Voetberg.  Christian runs Cross Country and Track for the Eagles. His coaches report that Christian asked Sadie to senior banquet, and then she avoided him for the next week and a half because he had her name in senior assassination (a non-school sanctioned or supported activity… that occurs far away from school).
Congratulations Christian on balancing academics and athletics so well!
