Swanton High School has chosen its athletes of the month for September and they are seniors Kyle Dockery and Joslyn Reisinger. Dockery and Reisinger were chosen by the administration of SHS based upon leadership, personal character, and athletic achievement during the month of September. This honor may be given to any athlete in grades 9-12 based upon this criteria.
Joslyn is the daughter of Kay and Rick Dohm. During her four years at Swanton, she has participated in volleyball, basketball, show choir and National Honor Society. As Libero on the volleyball team, Reisinger is the main defensive player, she also leads the team in successful serve receive percentage at over 80 percent in number of digs per match.
“Joslyn is an extremely hard worker and her defense helps our offense run more effectively,” volleyball coach Kyle Borer said.
She is also one of the top point scorers as a server, averaging better than 10 per match. Reisinger's future plans are to attend college and major in psychology.
Dockery is the son of Clint and Hayley Dockery. During his four years at Swanton, he has been involved in golf and baseball. During the month of September, Dockery was medalist in two matches and was the low man on the golf team for four matches.
“Kyle has been a great team leader and his experience will be missed,” golf coach Eric Oakes said.
Dockery also finished in sixth place at the NWOAL golf tournament, earning first team all-league for the second time, and led the Bulldogs to a second place finish at leagues as well. In golf, Dockery is a four-year letter winner, and a two year letter winner in baseball. His future plans are to attend the University of Toledo and major in bio-chemistry.
