MVC Athletes of the Week for CHCA (updated weekly)

Check out CHCA Athletes of the Week in the Miami Valley Conference:

Lucas Leamer – Sophomore – Swimming
Lucas was determined to swim at Sectionals on his first day back from the flu, and he helped his relay qualify to the district meet. I have never seen someone keep such a positive attitude through this injuries and illness. Nobody thought he would swim as well as he did, and physically there was no reasonable explanation for him doing that well. It was all his mental attitude and his desire to help the team which allowed him to swim so well. Great job Lucas!

Lillian McNutt – Senior – Swimming
Lillian is the true definition of team attitude. She has come so far in her swimming, and she has been the team cheerleader for so long. Every team needs a Lillian, and I am so happy that our team was fortunate to have her. Her spirit is so huge. Lillian reminds us that the relationships we create will last longer than any time from any race. It was my pleasure to laugh and cry with her as she finished her career. We love you Lillian, and best of luck being a beacon of God’s light with all your future endeavors.

In the last week of the season, Kiylah registered 45 points, 22 steals, and 17 rebounds for the Lady Eagles.

Catherine Frazer- Senior – Swimming

For Coach Rielag, Catherine is one of the hardest workers he has coached. She has always been a very good swimmer, and recently she accomplished her first-ever victory in a 50 freestyle event against Mason and Badin. To top this off, her hard work is only second to how good of a person she is. She is such a pleasure to coach. Everybody should be able to know the whole Catherine. We are sad she is graduating this year.


Lucas Leamer – Sophomore – Swimming
Lucas has gone through a complete transformation to better himself personally and has had to work so hard physically. He has overcome injuries and continued working hard enough to be on the school record-setting 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays. Lucas has truly earned this honor. I look forward to the rest of the season with Lucas, and I am lucky to be his coach.

Azu Hernandez – Senior – Swimming
Azu is a senior from Guatemala and recently was able to swim in her first ever meet. She works so hard in practice and finally was able to compete. In her 50, she dropped over 20 seconds from her time in the first practice. In the 100 free, she did the same. It is so much fun as a coach to see this kind of excitement and accomplishment. We are so proud of you Azu! Keep it up.

Bella Answini – Junior – Basketball
Bella, a junior guard at CHCA, had 34 points, 14 rebounds, and 12 steals in the team's first two games.

Annie’s kill percentage of .417 was not enough to carry the Lady Eagles to victory, but it sure did not go unnoticed.
