Nathan Maniskas, Sports Editor

Violet Mitchell has played many sports during her fours years at DGN, but has always been a standout in basketball. This year was her first year playing coming off of an injury that kept her out for her entire junior season.

“I think after coming back from an injury this season has gone very well. I’ve put in a lot of work outside of practice to be able to perform the way I used to before my injury, and my teammates always support me,” Mitchell said.

The team aspect of basketball has been one of her favorite parts of playing basketball during her time at DGN, which has helped her feel comfortable coming back from injury.

“I think our team is so close on and off the court. Everyone is friends with each other and the people I’ve met throughout the years have made my high school experience so special,” Mitchell said.

After this year, Mitchell will be playing at the college level, a long-time dream of hers.

“I will be continuing my basketball career at Denison University, a school with great academics, so I will be able to get a good education while playing the sport I love,” Mitchell said.
