Congratulations to Warrior Seniors Chloe Mitchell, Jameson Goorman and Brandon Fles
The WMC Athlete of the Year Award is given annually to the top male and female athlete(s) in the senior class. In the past, the presentation has taken place at the senior awards banquet. Due to COVID-19 that was not possible this year. For the 2019-2020 school year, WMC is proud to name one female and two co-athletes of the year.
Female Athlete of the Year – Chloe Mitchell
Chloe Mitchell starred on the volleyball court as a setter in 2019. Chloe helped lead her team to a MHSAA District Championship and the school’s first-ever Regional Championship. The Warriors were also Lakes 8 Conference Champions.
Chloe was named First Team All-Conference in the Lakes 8, MHSAA All-Region, MHSAA 1st Team All-State, 1st team Muskegon Area C/D Dream Team, Player of the Year Muskegon Area C/D Dream Team, and Academic All-State. In addition to these accolades, Mitchell also holds the school record in match assists, season assists, career assists, and career blocks.
Chloe’s leadership and athleticism were instrumental in the Warrior’s success in 2019. Mitchell will be attending Aquinas College in the fall and playing volleyball for the Saints.
Co-Male Athlete of the Year – Jameson Goorman
Jameson Goorman was the Goalkeeper on the 2019 Division 4 MHSAA State Championship soccer team. He also helped lead the team to a Lakes 8 Conference Championship. In addition to the team accomplishments, Goorman was named 1st team All-Conference in the Lakes 8, MHSAA All-District, All-Region, and First Team All-State.
Goorman stepped up in a huge way saving 4 of 5 shots in a shootout to win the MHSAA State Championship. Goorman was also going to be a key contributor on the baseball team in the spring (season canceled due to COVID-19). He would have played outfield, catcher, and pitcher for an experienced Warriors team that was looking to make some noise in the 2020 season.
In the 2019 baseball season, Goorman was named First Team All-Conference in the Lakes 8, MHSAA All-District, and Mlive All-Area.
Jameson plans on attending Muskegon Community College in the fall and playing soccer for the Jayhawks.
Co-Male Athlete of the Year – Brandon Fles
Brandon Fles was the staple on the back line for the 2019 Division 4 MHSAA State Championship soccer team. Brandon also helped lead the Warriors to a Lakes 8 Conference Championship. For his efforts, Fles was named 1st Team All-Conference in the Lakes 8, MHSAA All-District, All-Region, First Team All-State, and All-Academic. With Fles anchoring the defense, the Warriors gave up only 1 goal in regulation during the State Championship run.
In the winter Fles turned his attention to the hardwood and competed for the Warrior basketball team. He helped lead the team to the MHSAA District Championship game (canceled due to COVID-19) and a Lakes 8 Conference Championship. In addition, he was named to the Lakes 8 All-Conference 2nd Team.
Brandon will be attending Hope College in the fall and playing soccer for the Dutchmen.
