M.I.A.C. April Athletes of the Month

Logan Johnson, Junior, Track, Novi Christian Academy

At the Whitmore Lake Invitational, Logan Johnson led the Novi Christian Academy Track and Field Team to its first traditional baton relay victory in the 4×800, setting the school record.  He followed that performance with a strong 800m race, finishing in 4th place almost breaking his school record. In that same meet he was also part of the 4×100 relay which broke the school record, and part of the 4×400 team than ran the 2nd fastest time in school history.  These outstanding performances were a natural outcome of the work ethic he has demonstrated in practice, regularly doing even more than what his coaches asked for in workouts.

Natalie Malczyk, Sophomore, Track and Field, Huron Valley Lutheran

Natalie Malczyk comes to practice eager to work hard. She will do whatever the coaches ask of her to improve. If she misses a practice (to play on the HVL softball team), she will still ask what she should work on after softball is done. Her desire to work hard has shown with her times and jumps. She has broken 3 school records and tied another.  In the month of April she placed 2nd in the 100 and 4×400 relay,  and 3rd in the 200 and Long Jump at the Whitmore Lake Invite.  She had first place finishes in 1st MIAC Jamboree in the -100m (12.9), 200m (28.0), Long Jump (15’3.5) and 4×400 relay.
