Adele Daniels and Yave Sanchez were selected as “Athlete of the Month” for the month of February. Please see Head Coaches’ comments about those athletes below. Congratulations!!
“Adele ended the final weeks of her high school basketball career with a bang. In the last 10 games, Adele averaged 23.1 points shooting 46 percent from the field. She also leads the team in steals (4.3) and blocks (0.8) per game. Adele is a very competitive athlete. She competes with not only with her opponents and her teammates but with the goals she sets for herself as well. Adele is a versatile athlete with a strong all-around game that gives our team great flexibility in how we play. As the lone senior and team captain, Adele has done a wonderful job leading the team on and off the court and with mentoring our younger players. Congratulations, Adele! We are proud of your accomplishments! – Head Coach Amy Mowl
“Yave Sanchez finished the season on a strong note by leading the team in scoring with 14.3 points per game and finishing second in rebounding with 8 rebounds per game during the month of February. Yave closed out the season with 1,317 career points which placed him on 7th place on the Maryland School for the Deaf Boys’ Basketball’s all-time leading scoring list. One of his best game performances was against defending champion, The Avalon School at the prestigious 69th St. Anselm’s Abbey Invitational Basketball Tournament at the end of the season where he had 27 points and 13 rebounds in an overtime victory. We will certainly miss in having Yave on the team next season.” – Head Coach James DeStefano
Citrine Lummer, currently a sixth grader, was awarded the “Good Sport Award”.
Citrine played flag football for five years through Frederick County Recreation and Parks. This organization nominated Citrine to the Mid-Atlantic Recreation and Parks Sports Alliance (MARPSA) for her positive attitude and for her respect to her coach, referees, and players alike.
MARPSA invited 28 awardees to a formal banquet. They gave six awards to players and 22 to coaches, out of all players and coaches in the State of Maryland! Citrine was one of six who was recognized. The Frederick County Recreation & Parks offers a wide array of sports; however, Citrine was the only player out of all sports to be nominated for such award from Frederick County.
Congratulations to Citrine Lummer!

“As a captain of the wrestling team, Maverick has done exceptionally well with in month of January. He maintained a perfect 8-0 record, winning 5 by pins. He also won first place at Covenant Life School Tournament by winning the 152lb class.
He is a serious wrestler and is always the first person to show up at practices. He practices hard on his own when coaches focus on other wrestlers. During tournaments, when two MSD wrestlers are wrestling at the same time, Maverick from time to time steps up and helps the coaches as an assistant coach. Way to go Maverick!” – Wrestling Coaches
