For a season that might not have happened, EC athletics saw a lot of success this fall. There is more than just talented athletes that goes into the Mountaineers success, there are some phenomenal coaches. Talking with EC athletic director, Ann Serra-Lowney, last week about what makes athletics at Everest unique she mentioned many factors including multisport athletes, a Christ-centered approach, and the importance of the community. She added, “Everest is blessed with amazing coaches. The majority of our head coaches have played college athletes. Our athletes respect our staff and look up to them not only as coaches but as mentors and role models. What our coaches bring to our athletes is not just the knowledge and technique of the sport but also of authenticity and virtue. Coaches love coaching at Everest because the Mountaineers are fun to coach. They are passionate, enthusiastic, and concerned more about the team than individual glory.”
This fall three EC coaches were named regional coach of the year by their respective coaching associations: MIHSCCA, MITCA, and MHSFCA. John Haezebrouck lead the Mountaineer soccer team in back-to-back district and regional titles. Mary Williams and the cross country team also claimed back-to-back regional titles as well as their first CHSL championship title. Michael Pruchnicki led the undefeated football team to a district title and they are hoping for more. Kickoff is set for the EC football regional game on Tuesday, December 15, at 5:00 P.M. verses Summerfield. The game is scheduled to be played at Clarkston High School.
