IWA Basketball achieved their pre-season goals by making the TAPPS Playoffs for the fourth consecutive year with an overall record of 16-16. First-year coach Ricky Hernandez attributed this solid season to the girls’ team culture, and has high hopes for next year: “Our seniors were our leaders and motivators all season. Having said that, our four top scorers and rebounders were all freshmen and sophomores so the future is bright!” Congratulations to Audrey Hernandez ‘22 who made the 1st team TAPPS 6A District 4 All-District team, along with Amaya Pitts ‘21 and Anora Lee ‘22 who made the 2nd team All-District.
The IWA Swim Team had one of its best seasons ever, with three broken records and six students competing in five events at TAPPS State–the most the program has ever had. Carson Chesnut ‘22 made a strong debut in her first year of high school athletics by breaking IWA’s school record in the 50m Free at TAPPS Regionals with a time of 26:31. Laura Cromwell ‘20 beat her own school record at TAPPS State in the 500m Free with a time of 5:50:41. The 200m Free Relay team of Eileen Evans ‘20, Laura Cromwell ‘20, Daniela Taboada ‘21, Carson Chesnut ‘22 also beat the school record with a time of 1:52:42.
Bravo to team captain and goalie Ava Brendgord ‘19 who, as the only senior on the team, led IWA Soccer to their best season record (9-9-1) since the program’s inception. The young team closed out the season at the District Tournament. Adriana Rucoba ‘20 made the Second Team All-District. Coach Bryan Gonzalez shared, “This was a great season for our team and we’re already looking forward to next year because we have all the players coming back except one.”
IWA was proud to honor senior Morgan Sword as she signed her letter of intent on February 6th, the 2019 National Signing Day. Morgan proudly committed to play golf at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana. The first IWA student to play golf in college, Morgan was recruited by Rocky Mountain College for golf, but her decision was based on academics. Morgan will enroll in the prestigious RMC Aviation Program to pursue her dream of becoming a pilot. Congratulations, Morgan!
