The athlete of the month is not only an athlete that excels in their sport on the field, but also excels off the field, which is why the athlete of the month for October is senior Misha Demchuck.

Misha is a member of the girls’ soccer team in the fall as well as being a member of the girls’ lacrosse team in the spring.

As one of the three team captains, Misha plays a big part in the success of the girls’ soccer team and has helped them to secure a second straight section title, their third in four years. With a record of 19-1-0, the Lady Raiders have rolled into the WPIAL finals against Peters Township with a +40 goal differential (51 goals for, 11 goals against).

Misha plays center-mid and is a four year letterman for the soccer team as well as 2011 and 2012 All-Section performer.

After the winter has come and gone and the snow melts, Misha is right back on the field; this time as a lacrosse player where she is a four year starter and a four year letter winner.

Misha has also earned Lacrosse MVP for the 2010 and 2011 seasons, as well as being given the honor of 2011 All-Section for lacrosse.

The second part to being athlete of the month is your performance off the field and in the classroom where Misha is even better.

Off the field, Misha is a member of multiple clubs and organizations, such as National Honors Society for two years, Student Council for four years, Varsity Club and Key Club for three years, and Science National Honors Society for one year.

Misha has received the honor of being named to the Highest Honor Roll for four years, as well as being named an Academic All American.
