Congratulations to Gianna Lane for being named Athlete of the Month for Darby’s Girls Track Team. Gianna dominated the month of May. She won the OCC in the 200m, where she broke the school record. She also was the runner-up in the Long Jump and 100m dash. She has stepped up as a leader for the team and is qualified to compete in the regional finals in the 100, 200, and long jump.
In 4 games in the month of May, Jr. Captain Mac Link had 8 Goals and 7 Assists, while also causing 6 turnovers and grabbing 12 groundballs as a midfielder. Mac finished the season as the team leader in Total Points (68) and Goals (45), second in Assists (23) and Caused Turnovers (25), and third in Groundballs (49). He earned 2nd Team Honors for All-Region and All-OCC, and as a two-way midfielder he led the team both on Offense and Defense. Mac also exhibits “Team Captain” qualities on and off the field, as he maintained a 3.9 GPA and was a role model for our program’s young players in the hallways of Darby, in the locker room, and of course on the field.
