Coed Varsity Track · Spring Sports Senior Spotlight: Lizzy Midla


The COVID-19 pandemic has had great impact throughout the world in the last six months.  Locally, in addition to the obvious health affects that this virus has caused for so many people that have either gotten sick and some have died, the stay at home orders have had significant affects on everyone.  One of these things is the loss of the Spring Sports season.  This has impacted so many, from professional sports, the collegiate level, high school and middle schools, all the way down to the recreational level.  While so many have been affected, it is especially disappointing for the Class of 2020 who have lost their final HS season to compete for their school, enjoy their sport with their friends, and have the opportunity to impact others and grow themselves.  Because the Spring Sports seniors will not have the opportunity to be honored at a Senior Night for their respective sport this season, the Athletic Department will honor one senior from a Spring Covenant athletic team each day to honor them for their time as a CCHS athlete.

Today’s Senior Spotlight is Lizzy Midla.  Lizzy was going to participate in track and field for the first time in 2020.  Here’s Lizzy’s senior biography:

Favorite Sports Memory: The snack bags we got before our meets

What Lizzy was looking forward to in her first season of Track & Field: I was looking forward to having fun at outdoor meets and making new friends
