Hayden High School held its athletic awards ceremony and banquet. Many students that participated in sports during the year received certificates, awards, and trophies.

Participation, performance, and competition in the Hayden Winkelman athletic program will focus on opportunities for students to develop and exhibit skills to the best of their abilities.

The goals of the athletic program are: to build self esteem; develop skills; expand interest in lifetime and leisure activities; to provide opportunity for personal and social growth; encourage all students to participate; develop a positive self discipline and to develop self motivation. Parents have noted the correlation between athletics and good grades, while coaches have stressed the importance of joining a team in middle school. Often students join a team in search of themselves. Soon students begin to develop self discipline and working together toward team goals.

Many awards were given from teachers, coaches, and the superintendent, Mr. Gregorich. The awards included: spirit line, football, volleyball, boys and girls basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, principle award, Lobo Howl award, and outstanding male and female awards. The banquet food was delicious and the joyous faces of award winners were unspeakable.

The motivation of parents and supervisors has been inspiring to the youth of Hayden-Winkelman. The students have pride in themselves and have desires to continue their efforts in academics as well as in athletics. The partnership between parents and schools help create an environment of success for each student. All students are encouraged to achieve a balance of academic programs and extracurricular activities. Hayden-Winkelman Unified School District looks forward to continuing their tradition of excellence!
