MEDINA, Ohio - Running with the Highland High School cross country team isn't the only sport Nicole Hadler' participates in. Her feet have carried her from the track to the trails, and even the tennis courts.
Hadler, a three sport athlete, is also getting the job done outside of sports. She's a member of the National Honor Society and a volunteer for a Cursive Handwriting Camp for children with special needs.
"I just love interaction with other kids and helping them improve at whatever they need to get better on. It's just really rewarding to know that I made a difference," Hadler said.
At the head of her class with a 4.457 GPA, Hadler is one very talented student and athlete.
"She's a great ambassador for our school. Very respected by her peers and especially by her teachers. Very well liked all over, just a very well rounded person," said head cross country coach Devan Lippincott. "I'm very blessed to coach and teach her."
A big congratulations goes to Hadler for being our McDonald's Student Athlete of the Week.
