Top fives individual performances
March 17, 2023
Lukes stiles’ 226 against FHN
Luke Stiles is a consistent bowler. He can give you 175 points every night, he always comes out swinging. He certainly did on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, when he won an absolute brawl against Forest Hills Northern’s sophomore bowler Ethan Tran. Luke won the game 226 to 206, capturing a point for the FHC bowlers to win the first battle for Eastbrook Lanes.
Reed Dixon’s 2:02.19 200-yard individual medley
On Saturday, February 25, 2023, Reed Dixon was focused on trying to get the Rangers a high placement as a team in the OK-White swim and dive conference tournament. The Ranger swimmers may have only placed fifth in the tournament, but not because of Reed. During the 200-yard individual medley, he took sixth place with an amazing time of 2:02.19. A perfect way to cap off his great season before heading off to the state finals.
Thomas Carano’s 1:09.02 slalom run
On the second match of the season, Thursday, February 2, 2023, Thomas Carano came out with winning on his mind. He placed first in boys slalom, with a time of 1:09.02. On top of that, the scores from Thomas, along with more dominance from the Ranger skiers, FHC took first overall! Not a bad way to start off your senior season.
Rachael Yeager’s 8.4 and 9.175 scores
Rachael Yeager knew she had to come into regionals strong to prolong her season, and she did not disappoint. On the bars, she had a score of 8.4, and on the floor, she had an astounding score of 9.175! At the end of the day, the Forest Hills gymnastics team placed 4th in the region, and Rachael’s impressive performance earned her a trip to the state finals.
Jake Koning 24 point game along with five assists
Jake Koning is a name that is well-known throughout the school. He has racked up multiple high-scoring performances this season, but one game stands out among the rest. When the Rangers first played Northview, Jake Koning put the team on his back by scoring a career-high 24 points and a solid 5 assists. Statistically, the typical high school basketball scores an average of 9.5 points per game, clearly Jake is no typical high school athlete. Jake’s 24-point game was the highest-scoring display by any Ranger this season, and while the Rangers did not manage to win that game, without Jake Koning the margin of loss would have been much more significant.
