Congratulations to LaVille senior Aryn Eash on being selected to this group of student-athletes.

“It is a huge honor,” said Eash.  “It just kind shows that everything that I have done throughout my high school career is paying off.”

When asked about being a role model to younger kids and sportsmanship when participating in one of her three sports, Eash responded, “You don’t really think about that kind of stuff when you start playing sports.  That’s just how I was raised.  It is cool that other people are noticing that sportsmanship and being a good role model are important. It tells me that I am being a good role model for younger kids.”


Eash, who participates in soccer, basketball, and track, acknowledged the LaVille community for being a part of her life the last several years.

“This is also a good reflection on the school,” explained Eash.  “The LaVille Community has been a big part of my life all through school.   LaVille has prepared me for the real world, and because of this amazing community I am as prepared as I could be for whatever comes next.”
