SEGUIN -- Five Lifegate Christian School students were named to fall Academic All-State teams by the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS).
The honor is given to junior and senior student-athletes who were named to all-district first teams and maintained an overall grade average of 90 or above. TAPPS represents about 250 private and parochial high schools and provides competitive opportunities for students to participate in 14 sports, as well as arts, academic, music, and drama events.
The Lifegate Lady Falcon volleyball team made the state semifinals. Three student-athletes were recognized with Academic All-State honors. Katelin Psencik, a senior, received first team all-state athletic honors and all-tournament team honors. Katelin is the daughter of Katie and Jeff Rietz and Tommy Psencik. Lyndsay Weaver, also a senior, received honorable mention all-state athletic honors and all-tournament team honors. She is the daughter of Jim and Kelly Weaver. Rachel Cramblitt, a junior, received honorable mention all-state athletic honors. Rachel is the daughter of Ken and Valerie Cramblitt.
The Lifegate Falcons football team won the TAPPS Division II Six-Man Football State Championship with a 14-0 record. Two student-athletes were recognized with Academic All-State honors. Tyler Swisher, a senior, received first-team all-state athletic honors. Tyler is the son of Glenn Swisher and Debbie Swisher. Kenny Cramblitt, a junior, received first-team all-state athletic honors. He is the son of Ken and Valerie Cramblitt.
“We are proud to recognize the accomplishments of these and all our students, not only athletically, but academically and in their service to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,” said Lifegate Athletic Director John Rabon. “We stress that our student-athletes seek victory in all they do, first in service to God and our fellow man, second in the classroom, and then on the athletic field. These young men and women provide that example every day.”
