Project Challenger Deep

MAST Academy’s Digital Sports Hall of Fame
Project+Challenger+Deep
Panni Peschke

Preface:

35,876 feet. Over 5,000 feet higher than Mount Everest, the Challenger Deep is the deepest explored point on Earth. To go down to the Challenger Deep represents going to a peak that no man or woman was ever meant to reach, and the names attributed to the exploration of the Challenger Deep have been etched in history. 

Being etched in history. Since its establishment in 1991, MAST Academy has been faced with the difficult task of highlighting the achievements of their student athletes. The task of keeping records of notable sports achievements from MAST alumni has been left to the coaches of MAST’s sports teams, who are already busy coaching and training their students. Consequently, records ended up being lost or never kept in the first place. MAST has attempted to keep records via their board of records in the senior hall, but the board of records is flawed. Aside from being outdated, the money required to actually update the board takes away funding from the MAST’s sports. Project Challenger Deep aims to solve these problems.

In a collaboration between writers of The Beacon and MAST Academy coaches, MAST for the first time in its history will have a digital Sports Hall of Fame. The purpose of Project Challenger Deep is to highlight the success of MAST’s previous student athletes and establish a tangible peak for future student athletes to climb to, all the while not being at the expense of MAST’s athletic budget.

Important Note:

The Beacon has worked with MAST’s various coaches and used online resources such as Max Preps to complete Challenger Deep as much as possible, however there are still missing records and some records may be incorrect. If you have information to fill a record, replace a currently existing record, or add a new record, then do not hesitate to contact The Beacon with the appropriate proof via a direct message on Instagram. Your understanding and help are deeply appreciated.
