Page 16 9-I:,CRTS :1 1m ra - June 6, 2012 lqick Hall, Devyn Makin named year's top athletes Nick Hall and Devyn Makin were named the Booster Club Boy and Girl of the Year at the Senior Sports Banquet held Tuesday, May 29, at the Community Center. Hall is a two-time district champion in cross-country, a 12- time district titlist in track and has won seven state medals, including running a leg on the state-champi- on 4x400 relay team as a freshman. He also wrestled this year. Makin lettered in volleyball for four years, played basketball for two, anl is a four-year letter winner in track and field, in which she has won six state place-winner medals. Each will receive a $250 scholarship, Booster Club Wendi Melcher said. Longtime Sweet Home coach and teacher Rob Younger was guest speaker at the event. He em- phasized the importance of strong relationships built through athlet- ics, even over winning. "I can guarantee you change will happen in your lives," he sai d , noting that gas was 33 cents a gal- lon when he graduated from high school, and his family's home had a party line and a TV antenna on the roof that received three channels - NBC, ABC and CBS. "It may be unexpected. You have to learn to adapt and change, and hopefully you'll be better off for it." He cited a 2007 reunion of the 1987 state championship Sweet Home football team, in which the 34 players who returned, from as far away as Virginia, talked most- ly about how playing sports had helped them develop character.- He quoted one, who said, "Be- ing a true athlete involves making choices regarding things you have control over." Relationships are more impor- tant than achievements, Younger said. "Some day, when you are ly- ing on your deathbed, I don't think you're going to ask to see your high school diploma one more time," he said. "Five, 10, 15 years from now, what you accomplished is not as important as who you ac- complished it with." He said love - doing what's best for someone else - needs to be a top priority if one is to live a life of significance, not just a life of success.
