Ocoee High School hosted its Fall Sports Extravaganza Thursday, Jan. 12, to commemorate the performance of its fall sports teams.
“I want to thank everyone for coming,” Athletic Director Bill Alderman said. “The reason why I started this is that everybody sees or hears about the big sports — everyone knew about football’s historic run but not everybody knew about volleyball having one of the best records in years. … Aquatics had difficulties finding a pool, so that team struggled but got through; they survived and then progressed as the season went on, and cross country hosted their first home meet in over nine years.”
Eight students were selected for the Baptiste Orthodontics All-Academic Team to recognize their academic performance during the 2022 fall semester. Those students are Julia Bernstein, Kaylee Salvatore, Cameron Shull, Isabela Thallman, David Cain, Deandre Scott, Alannah Taylor and Mckenzy Walker.
Furthermore, Baptiste Orthodontics recognized five student-athletes: Ahlston Ware (Male Athlete of the Season), Kaylee Salvatore (Female Athlete of the Season), Joshua Guerrier (Breakout Male Athlete), London Adkins (Breakout Female Athlete) and Alyssa Poindexter (Coaches’ Choice Award).
Two teams set new records: volleyball and football, with five and 27, respectively, during the 2022 season.
