BDHS Athletic Director Melissa Gehring had this to say about these young men and women’s success both academically and athletically…

We are very excited for these student-athletes to continue both their academic and athletic careers at post-secondary institutions.  We hope they take what they learned both in our classrooms and on the courts, fields, and ice in Beaver Dam and use it toward growth and success in their future endeavours.  These student-athletes are great role models and will represent our community well.
