The 2017 class is in the midst of their last semester  as GC Cougars.   Many great athletes will move on from GC this year, including Morganne Denny, Joshua Mundell, Austin Mullins, Madison Wise, Katie Helgason, and many more.

According to Joshua Mundell, 12, “Senior year is bittersweet. I am excited for the next step but at the same time I am going to enjoy my final stretch of high school,” said Mundell.

Madison Wise, 12, said, “It is sad to know I only have a few months left with the people I’ve grown up with, but also exciting to move on to the next chapter in my life.”

Denny, 12, said that she is very excited to get out in real world and see what it is holding for her.

After high school Mundell will attend college in the fall, but undecided on the university. He added that one possibility is to play basketball at Hanover College after high school.

Wise will be attending Iowa State University to study business and continue her career in basketball. Wise has committed to play basketball at Iowa State for the next 4 years.

Denny will continue her career as a softball player at IPFW and that during the summer she will enjoy her last season getting to play travel softball. “I guess I could thank all of the coaches I have ever had in my life (from softball to even basketball) because without their knowledge and their work ethic in getting me to become a hard-nosed player, then I wouldn’t have the chance in playing in college. And also shoutout to all of my past teammates for also pushing me. Love you fam!!” says Denny.

With leaving GCHS after this semester, Mundell said, “I will miss my friends and the close-knit environment that only high schools possess.”

Denny said, “What I will miss most about GCHS is the community, honestly. Many students have changed my life in positive and even in negative ways, but without my experiences at GCHS I wouldn’t be the person I am today. It may sound a bit cliché, but it’s the truth.”

Wise said,“What I will miss most about GC is all of the people I grew to know over the years.”
