Anthem Prep High School students Austin Roe, Tony Villandre, Mae Symmonds, Alyson Murdaugh and Megan Villandre where chosen to participate in “We Honor the Game,” a conference hosted by professional athletes and college coaches who instilled in these student athletes the importance of good sportsmanship and leadership.


The event was held at Grand Canyon University, sponsored by the Charter Athletic Association. Over 300 student-athletes from around the state were in attendance.


Freshman Austin Roe was the high school soccer team’s leading scorer in goals and assists, leading his team to the CAA Division I State Championships this past season. He is also active in the community refereeing youth soccer games.


Tony Villandre is a standout sophomore, excelling on the baseball field and in cross-country this year. He was named captain of the baseball team and is a natural leader.


Mae Symmonds and Alyson Murdaugh are two top soccer players, playing both club and school soccer. These freshmen are great students and leaders in their class on and off the field.


Junior Megan Villandre is an outstanding volleyball player and was named to the All-Conference and All-State teams last season. Megan also played with Alyson on the boys’ baseball team this year, while at the same time she was a key member of the high school soccer team.


Congratulations to these student-athletes!
