WFMD/Nymeo Athletes of the Month (APRIL 2017)

What a Junior year for Lacrosse star Jordan Swoyer. Scoring 106 points, setting a Linganore team record for assists in a season and leading the Lancers to an undefeated regular season, a regional title, and a final mark of 17-1!

And what a Freshman year for Oakdale Track and Field standout Lauren Leatherman! At different times during the season, Lauren was either first or second in the county in a vast assortment of events: Triple Jump, 400 Meter Dash, 100 Meter High Hurdles, Long Jump, 800 Meter Run, and High Jump. She ended up winning the 400 Meter and 800 Meter runs and finishing second in the Long Jump at the CMC Regional Meet at the end of the season.

What is fascinating about the accomplishments of these two athletes is that the best may be yet to come. Of course, Swoyer was a member of last year’s Linganore Lacrosse state champions and part of the incredible 34 winning streak. It is hard to believe but Leatherman, now a threat at states, was an 8th grader last year!
