Michael Frazetta

Class: Junior

School: Freeport

Sport: Hockey

Report Card: The junior forward is second on the team in points with 34, and leads the team in assists with 25. He is the main catalyst on the top line for the Yellowjackets (14-4-1).

You've had a great month of February. What's it going to take to keep your momentum going heading into the playoffs?

I think to keep the momentum going into the playoffs, I will not change any part of my game. From pregame routines to work ethic on the ice, I am going to be sure to stay focused and try and help continue the streak that the team is on.

Who gives the best speech, teammate-wise, either pre-game or during a game?

For pregame speeches, senior defenseman Brendon Zack gives the best speeches. In the locker room before every game, the team will huddle up and Brendon will give us a speech and game plan.

Sabrina Bowman

Class: Sophomore

School: St. Joseph

Sport: Swimming

Report card: Bowman will compete in the 100-yard backstroke and 100-yard butterfly in the WPIAL Class AA championships Thursday and Friday. She placed second in the 100 butterfly last season.

You took silver in the 100 butterfly last year. What did you learn from that experience that will help you this year?

I wasn't worried about the people around me. I just want to worry about myself and I know if I get first, second or last, I'll still be happy with myself because I worked hard for it, and I gave it my best.

Has this season played out the way you hoped it would?

I got the flu a month and a half ago, and I lost some weight. It was hard working back up, but I feel confident because I'm strong now.
