"Everybody loves Colton ," Trejo said.

"It's a great opportunity for me to have an excuse to come back and pass on the crown next year," Myers added.

For these two seniors, being involved in school activities is an important aspect to high school life. And they have plenty of advice for those that follow in their footsteps.

"Don't slack off, you'll regret it later," Trejo warned. "Become involved while you have the chance. It isn't anything to be ashamed of."

"I've learned that you should never take much for granted," Myers added. "Any opportunity you're presented with is great. Constantly looking for ways to improve yourself will benefit you later on. There are so many opportunities that I can't wait to be presented with in college."

While Trejo said she has no regrets looking back on the past four years, Myers did express that he wished he would've added a sport to his busy schedule.
