Senior Spotlight – Jaime Bernal


This week we are recognizing Jaime Bernal as a Senior Spotlight. Jaime’s friends and coach have described him as hardworking, dedicated, and serious about what he does. Jaime wrestled in 6th grade and picked it back up his sophomore year. He is now having a very successful season with a record of 47-5. 

Coach Waddell told us what he believes Jaime’s best qualities are, “Jaime is an outstanding person with a great work ethic.  He is a quiet person, but he is a leader by example.” When asked what he did to help Jaime prepare for his senior season, coach Waddell informed us that Jaime has wrestled for 11 out of 12 months and he was there to “support him along the way.”

The Nest also got to speak with Jerry Jimenez, one of Jaime’s close friends. Jerry is also a senior that will be graduating alongside Jaime. Jerry said what he’ll miss the most about Jaime is “the friendship and bond that we’ve had for years.”  The Eagles Wrestling team is working toward the culmination of their season as they begin Regionals this weekend. We wish the best of luck to Jaime and the whole team!
