Student Athletes Visit ESPN High School Sports

  • The show will air on Saturday March 18, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., on 990 AM and online.

Five Villa Maria student athletes were guests on the radio show ESPN High School Sports. Juniors Kiera Broadhurst, Shannon Smith, and Lizzy Walheim were joined by sophomores Julie D’Ascenzo and Molly McGurk, along with twenty other student athletes from the area, to discuss what makes a good coach. Each student spoke in different segments of the two hour show. Villa coach Kathy McCartney said that the Villa student athletes were very well spoken and articulated their thoughts and opinions very clearly. She reported that the show’s host, Rich Henkels, commented that “the Villa kids were fantastic,” and invited them to return on a future show.
