Sophomore Jessica Mason is an Athlete of the Week for Springfield High School. Jessica is a member of both the cheer and dance teams. Varsity cheer coach Megan Cantu said of Jessica, “Jessica learned a new skill over the last few weeks and overcame a fear. Being a flier is difficult. It takes a great deal of skill but also trust in yourself and teammates. Jessica was able to execute that skill at our last competition even when her group changed at the last minute. I’m so proud of Jessica’s ability to persevere through her fear by overcoming it and learning something new. She did it for her team and it helped us qualify for states again this year!” Coach Cantu also mentioned that Jessica doesn’t ever say no when it comes to being adaptable or learning something new. She always does what’s best for her group and team. Coach Cantu said, “she is an amazingly coachable athlete and an asset to her team.” Congratulations, Jessica!
The Athlete of the Week awards are sponsored by the Springfield Athletic Boosters.
