Alexis Yelland has been an amazing and wonderful addition to our Three Rivers athletics program. Not only does she do a phenomenal job with medical/training needs of our athletes, but she also helps students from a health and wellness perspective.
We had one young lady this season on our cross country team who was a state finalist as a freshman. Her track season did not go the way she wanted and was really struggling with her mental and physical health coming into cross country. Alex was able to help this young lady from a mental health perspective by listening to her, building confidence, and connecting with her as a person first and trainer second. As our young lady’s emotional and mental confidence began to grow, we were able to get her physical needs straightened out to the point she had a stronger season in cross country this year than last. Without Alex as our athletic trainer, I am not sure this young lady has the season she does.
I am confident that any athlete I send in that training room is in the absolute best hands not only because they will get proper physical training support, but emotional and relational support as well. If we do not show them we care, then we will never be able to properly help these athletes and Alex does this with flying colors.
