landmark high school tennis player on courtJack

At first singles for the boys tennis team and as team co-captain, Jack took on the best singles players in the Eastern Independent League and came away undefeated for the season. Since starting with the team in eighth grade, Jack has improved steadily and dramatically to become one of the strongest players in the league. His ability to mix his serving, net game, and baseline game is outstanding. Congrats to Jack for an amazing tennis season.


landmark high school baseball player holding batMahmood is everything a coach could want in a player. He plays hard and his flowing locks intimidate opponents as they bounce in the breeze he creates rounding the bases. During his last game, he ripped a clutch RBI single that raised the raucous crowd to its feet and put the Vikings in a position to win the game. He leads the team in RBIs and PS/AB (pitches seen per at bat), and he is tied for second on the team in total base hits. More importantly, he is always there to offer an encouraging word to his teammates. He has a bright baseball future ahead of him!
