Athletes of the Month - August

Congratulations to Melissa Brimhall and Brandon Edmondson for being selected as the Athletes of the Month.

Melissa Brimhall is a junior here at Salem Hills High School.  She is on the girls’ soccer team and loves being on the team. She mostly enjoys the great friendships that she has made on the team and being able to spend time with them on and off the field. Melissa is most notable for her tenacious defense. Coach Gillie said, “Melissa is a great leader on defense.  She works hard, is very aggressive, and she doesn’t let anything get her down.  Also, she is very positive and a great player for the team.” Melissa would likes to play like a flying squirrel by gliding in between her opponents. Congratulations to Melissa Brimhall on being the August Farmers Insurance Player of the Month.

Brandon Edmondson, a senior at Salem Hills High School was named the Cross Country Student/Athlete of the month for August. Cross Country is a long distance running sport where a typical race is three miles long and varies in difficulty.  Coach Bart Thompson said, “Brandon Edmondson has a great vision. He believes in his team with his whole heart and knows they can do anything.”  Brandon is a hard worker; he lifts weights at six a.m. and often runs practice when necessary. He is focused and has his sights set on nothing but the best for himself as well as his team mates. Coach Bart Thompson also stated, “Brandon is a great asset to the team and he greatly deserves this recognition.” Congratulations Brandon Edmondson for being the Athlete of the Month. Best of luck to you and your team this season.
