Those honored were Jordan Ide, Jennifer Lewis, Shannon Begay, Tyrell Natewa, Caleb Bia, Danny Bremer-Bennett, Tyra West, Destiny Laughlin, Tanya Watchman, and Taylor Begay.
Caleb Bia was also named Player of the Year for boys’ soccer. “It is an honor,” he said. “There are several other players who could have been selected as well. I owe it all to my Lord. I am thankful that the Lord has provided me with abilities to excel in soccer; all glory is his.”
The athletes were honored at a ceremony on December 6. The keynote address was delivered by Josh Catron, a former fullback for Stanford University.
Jeff Engbers, athletic director of Rehoboth, said, “Our athletes strive to be their best and to bring honor to Christ, Rehoboth, and their families. It has been an honor for our small school and athletes to receive recognition this past fall.”
Navajo Times honors are selected by sportswriters and photographers covering teams.
“After the soccer state quarter-final, the referee came over to our bench and told the coaches and the boys that we had played with such class the entire game and impressed her as no other team had,” said Carol Bremer-Bennett, superintendent of Rehoboth Christian School. “We know that this comes from being a Christian athlete and consider it the highest compliment when others notice God’s light shining through us.”
Rehoboth Christian School has 480 students in pre-K through twelfth grade.
