“We went into overtime because we were tied, so whoever scored the first goal won the game,” Quandt said. “It was really exciting, actually. Everyone ran onto the field and we were all jumping around. We were super stoked.”

Quandt has been on varsity since she was a freshman and also plays on the OPHS Girls’ Volleyball team. She enjoys coloring, trips to the beach and hanging out with friends. For any aspiring athletes, she advises to “always work your hardest and have fun with it.”

Sato has played soccer since he was four-years-old, both in clubs and at OPHS. He has been on varsity boys soccer for two years.

“I’ve actually loved playing [for the school], because playing alongside friends is the best feeling ever. It’s different from club soccer, like meeting new people with new personalities. In high school, everything just flows,” Sato said.

“Never give up, no matter what obstacles come at you,” Sato recommends to anyone who hopes to be Athlete of the Week. “Always keep on striving for the best.”
