Vikings News · Athletes of the Month – Gilkison & Beachler

Jan Runkle of Edward Jones, Gabrielle Gilkison, Coach Jaynes

Gabrielle Gilkison is a senior on the girls’ basketball team.  This past season, Gabrielle led the Vikings in steals per game and brought a level of intensity on both ends of the court.  Gabrielle had the role of always guarding our opponents best offensive players, and when doing so held all of her opponents to under their season average.  As a team captain her senior season, she was a difference maker both on the court and in the classroom.  Next year Gabrielle will either attend Centre College in KY or the Ohio State University.  Best of luck and congratulations to Gabrielle.
