Clinton Central School District is thrilled to announce that five senior student athletes on the girls’ varsity soccer team have been selected as WUTR’s and WKTV’s Athletes of the Week. 

Each individual has diligently worked on and off the field to exhibit leadership, drive and teamwork. Their perseverance and contributions to the team has lead them into a winning streak of 15-0-0 for the season thus far.

Described by their head coach Beth Baker as the “most complete class of players in more than 20 years of coaching this team,” it’s no surprise the following five outstanding individuals have been recognized for their efforts. Avery Maxam, Maddie Luke, Graci Dreimiller, Jessica Gale, and Riley Jones have been selected WUTR’S Athletes of the Week!

In addition to WUTR’S recent recognition, WKTV has also selected Avery Maxam as their featured Athlete of the Week. Maxam has been part of the Varsity Soccer team for four years, and is “dominating her season this fall”, described by Sports Express Reporter Spencer Davidson. She is well rounded and involved in all aspects of Warrior Life at Clinton High School, including her membership as a National Honor Society student and recipient of multiple league all-star honors for her play on the field.

Currently, she has made 29 goals and 18 assists over the course of 15 games. Maxam credits her strengths and achievements to her team stating that “without team chemistry, I wouldn’t be able to succeed!” Coach Baker describes her talent, skillset and leadership as “a force, no question about it! She is probably the most goal minded players I’ve ever had on a team.”
