Sportsmanship Athletes of the Month

You will constantly see him rooting on both teammates and competitors during meets. Off the track, Chase is active in Link Crew, National Honors Society and Mounted Movers while also serving as Senior Class Treasurer. In the community he is Youth Leader at Church, volunteers at a nursing home, helped build Puppy Garden Cemetery in Vermilion for rescue dogs and assisted in the Grow Point Church Clothing Drive.

Grace Burdorff
Midview High School
Track and Field / Cross Country

Grace Burdorff is an outstanding representative of what it means to be a Middie, balancing academics, athletics and fine arts. She is active in National Honors Society and Jazz Band. Grace is also the President of Tri-M and a Field Commander for the Midview Marching Blue. This winter she was one of just 96 students selected to play in the Ohio Music Education Association All-State Band.

“Grace has spent 4 years continuously working hard and setting a standard of effort that cannot be topped on the Midview Track and Cross Country programs. She juggles her success in the arts and classroom as well as leading the cross country and track teams with an ease that is rare for high school students. She is arguably the most improved of the Midview athletes the last four seasons and never hesitates to do what is asked of her. Grace works with our youth Middies on the Run and Midview Youth Track Camps and is a positive influence on her teammates regardless of age. She deserves recognition for all of her hard work and effort over career at Midview High School.”
