CHS athletes credit to community

I had the privilege of being in a Lovington restaurant on Thursday when the Clovis Wildcat high school cross country team came to dine.

I would like to praise each and every one of these young athletes for behaving like fine young ladies and gentlemen.

They were extremely polite and had excellent manners.

Also dining in the restaurant this evening was a young man celebrating his birthday. I saw one of the Clovis athletes get up and go around to each table. Shortly after this the entire cross-country team sang this little boy “Happy Birthday!”

They were not asked to do this, they simply chose to. It obviously made this young man’s day.

Clovis is well represented by its student athletes and their behavior does not go unnoticed.
