Eighth grader, Gabi Chackman, is on the Middle School Girls Basketball Team and is dedicated to learning more at each and every practice. During the very first game, she made her presence heard by rebounding and simply out hustling all of her opponents in order to get the ball. She has become the leading scorer on the team and will only continue to improve her abilities as time progresses. Her leadership skills and willingness to compete make her the December Athlete of the Month.
