Hooper, Workman Win Hemmelgarn Booster Scholarships

Kaitlyn Workman and Nathan Hooper were the 2017 recipients of the The Tony Hemmelgarn Scholarship, a $500 award given by the Turpin Athletic Boosters to one male student-athlete and one female student-athlete in recognition of athletic participation, team contributions, and commitment.

The scholarship is named in honor of Tony Hemmelgarn who served faithfully as Turpin’s athletic director from 1997-2012.

The female student-athlete recipient is The Ohio State University bound Kaitlyn Workman. Kaitlyn played a sport 10 out of 12 seasons:  soccer two seasons, basketball four seasons, and softball four seasons. Mr. Hopewell, her basketball coach, had this to say: "Kaitlyn is an extremely hard worker who led by example on and off the floor every day, including off-season; she didn’t miss a day."

When asked how Turpin Athletics has impacted her high school experience, Kaitlyn said:  "I learned how to be tough, how to fight, and how to have confidence in myself."

The male student-athlete recipient is the University of Utah bound Nathan Hooper. Nathan played a sport 9 out of 12 seasons:  basketball one season, football four seasons, and lacrosse four seasons. Mr. Stoll, his football coach, had this to say:  "Nathan is a wonderful young man who led by example."

When asked how Turpin Athletics has impacted his high school experience, Nathan wrote:  "Coach Stoll instilled discipline into all of his players . . . expecting the best from everyone of them. It’s this expectation of excellence that motivates me to improve myself not only athletically, but scholastically and morally."

Congratulations to Kaitlyn and Nathan.

Athletic Dept. Goals

We are excited about the opportunity to serve your family! We recognize the value of interscholastic athletics in the educational process and the values that young people develop when they have the opportunity to participate in activities outside of the traditional classroom. We further encourage the development and promotion of sportsmanship, ethics and integrity in all phases of the educational process and in all segments of our Spartan community.

Ten Goals of Turpin Athletics:

1. To offer and support a comprehensive interscholastic program.

2. To promote healthy choices including no drugs, no alcohol and no tobacco.

3. To focus on the development of skill at all levels.

4. To encourage student participation at all levels, however, as students progress through the system, it is understood that playing time will need to be earned and participation is not guaranteed.

5. To develop student/athletes who display good sportsmanship at all times. Good sportsmanship consists of: • Showing respect for opponents at all times. • Showing respect for officials and their decisions. • Knowing, understanding, and following the rules of the contest. • Maintaining self-control at all times. • Recognizing and appreciating outstanding skill and performance.

6. To develop a competitive, winning attitude. Winning is important.

7. To encourage individual commitment to personal and team goals.

8. To promote pride in the school and the athletic program. DO YOUR BEST!

9. To develop student leadership skills through team interaction.

10. To encourage parent and community participation in the total sports program via team parent groups and the Athletic Booster Club.

Though it’s not possible for us to provide the perfect experience for everyone involved, it doesn’t mean that we won’t try. We want to serve you in a way that helps your child/family have the best Educational Athletic experience possible.

Go Spartans!
