High school honors outstanding athletes

Hopkins High School has named the most outstanding female and male athletes to represent the class of 2014. Erin O’Neil was chosen as the Athena athlete and Terrance Bowers was chosen as the Apollo.

O’Neil was a key member of the Hopkins girls’ hockey team, which posted a 21-5-0 record during the 2013-14 season. O’Neil, a goalie, was named to the Star Tribune’s All-Metro First Team and was also recently tabbed as the state’s top senior goalie at the Ms. Hockey Awards Banquet. She has also represented her country as a member of the United States Under-18 team.

During the spring, O’Neil captains the Hopkins softball team. Next year, she will continue to pursue her athletics goals as a member of the Boston University women’s hockey team.

Bowers has also experienced his share of success for the Royals. A member of the Hopkins football and track and field teams, Bowers is a three-time All-Lake Conference first team selection and was an all-state honoree during his senior season.

The wide receiver will join the University of Minnesota-Duluth football program in the fall, but not before attempting to defend his state title in the triple jump. Bowers jump, skipped, and hopped his way to top honors in the event at the 2013 Class AA state meet with an official distance of 45 feet, 9.75 inches.
