Joey Jegier Headed to Notre Dame This Fall
Providence High School senior Joey Jegier has left his mark in two sports for the Panthers. The son of Steve and Michelle Jegier has amassed quite an academic and athletic resume while at Providence High School. Joey has been an All State Goalkeeper in soccer and a state championship level performer in track and field.
On the soccer field, Joey was named to the NCHSAA 4A All State Team in addition to being named All-Region and All-Conference. He set school records for most shutouts and least goals scored against. In Track and Field, Joey is an All-State performer and finished third in the state in the shot put. His personal bests include; 53’0.5” in the shot put, 148’7” in the discus and 6’2” in the high jump. He is only in his second year throwing the shot put and discus after watching his brothers compete in previous years. All of those feats in addition to his academic profile have given Joey the chance to have many college opportunities. For him, the choice became easy once one certain school opened their doors.
“Notre Dame blood runs in my family, but having a legacy of Domers is not the only reason I’ll be at Notre Dame in the fall. The campus is like no other. For my interests in engineering and business the academics are unparalleled. The student life is active and supportive, with a spiritual emphasis. I’m excited for the many opportunities Notre Dame presents, but I’m most excited to continue with track and field at the collegiate level.”
As mentioned above, Joey has set the world on fire in the classroom at Providence. He carries a 4.0 unweighted grade point average and a 5.3043 weighted grade point average. Joey also serves as the Future Business Leaders of America President and as an officer in the German Club. He has been inducted into the National Honor Society and the German Honor Society. Last spring Joey was the Chief Junior Marshall and he is currently ranked first in the senior class.
In addition to all of his athletic and academic commitments, Joey has found the time to also earn another huge honor.
“I have been involved with service since first grade through Boy Scouts, and that service culminated with my Eagle Scout Project, in which I led a team to build a Gaga Ball Court at Providence Spring Elementary.”
In addition, last summer Joey led a local blood drive at St. Francis United Methodist Church. He also enjoys volunteering at the Habitat for Humanity Restore and cooking food for Mel’s Diner. Take a bow Joey Jegier, you have certainly earned it with all of your hard work! The South Charlotte Sports Report salutes Joey Jegier for all of his accomplishments and we wish him the very best as he moves on to Notre Dame.
