Tigers select athletes of the month

Hayden High School Tigers

Hayden High School and the Hayden Booster Club announced their May athletes of the month.

Tigers’ junior Austin Wolford took the boys honors for his work on the school’s track team.

“Austin is a dedicated part of the track team,” coach Pat Moore said. “He has been a part of the high school track team for three years now, growing significantly in both the shot put and the discus. He comes to practice on a daily basis with a positive mindset and a willingness to help wherever he can. He is a crucial part of the team that we are glad to have out.”

Fellow junior Jessika Hockett was the girls athlete of the month.

“Jess has been a dedicated part of the high school track team for three years now. She has improved dramatically in the shot put, discus and triple jump as a result of her dedicated work ethic that she brings to every practice and meet,” Moore said. “She is an amazing role model for younger athletes who observe her level of respect for her teammates, coaches and the sport itself.”
