Sophomores Danica Hanson and Jordan Sales have been named Swanville’s February Athletes of the Month.
Hanson, daughter of Danny Hanson, is the Girls’ Basketball Athlete of the Month and Sales, son of Chris and Bruce Sales, is the Boys’ Basketball Athlete of the Month.
“Danica is a sophomore who has really stepped up her play for us. She has elevated the play of her teammates sine becoming a starter,” said girls basketball coach Aaron Gapinski. “She has a great attitude during games and practices all the while wanting to get better. Danica is a very coachable student-athlete who will do whatever it takes for the team. I am excited to see how much better she can become the next two years. Keep up the hustle and hard work Danica.”
Boys basketball coach Steve Miller chose Sales for the distinction. “Jordan is averaging 16 points, nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks per game. As a sophomore he will continue to get better because he works so hard at practice and even harder in games,” said Miller. “He is one athlete that you can push to get better and he will push himself to get better.”
