Time to recognize the Rapid Fired Pizza September Athletes of the month! 

Female Winner: 

Alexis Boykin – Varsity Volleyball – Northmont High School

Alexis is an all around amazing athlete. She qualified for STATE as a sophomore in the shot put event for track & field. Currently, she is leading the GWOC with 48 blocks in her first 9 volleyball matches. She is also top five in the conference with a .480 kill percentage which means she scores on almost half of her hitting attempts (50 kills on 104 attempts). Besides hitting and blocking, Alexis supports her team with a 95% serving percentage (4 errors in 79 attempts).

Along with her accomplishments in athletics, Alexis is showing success in the classroom with a 4.246 GPA. Alexis is multi-talented, also participating in band and drama club. There is nothing this outstanding student and amazing athlete can’t do, but most importantly, Alexis is an incredibly kind person. She leads by example on and off the court.
