WTCS Senior Derek Lee signs with Univ. of Jamestown

Derek Lee, Senior at Williston Trinity Christian School, signed his letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Jamestown. Derek is a three sport athlete – playing basketball for the WTCS Crusaders and participating through a co-op with Williston High School in soccer and baseball. He is a 3 year captain for basketball and was named a captain for the 2021 soccer team.

Derek is excited to continue his baseball career at the University of Jamestown. Derek says, “I love the game of baseball. I’m thankful to UJ Coach Hager for the opportunity to continue doing what I love. I also want to thank all of my Williston coaches – WHS Coach Finders and Post 37 Keybirds’ Coach Egge and all of my other coaches for the time they have put into helping me develop as a player. I’m grateful for my family and friends and for their support.”

Derek has maintained a 4.1 GPA and is a member of the Cru Honors Institute. He plans to pursue a degree in Physical Therapy.

“We are so proud of Derek and the effort he has put into everything he does,” say parents Chad and Jamie Lee. “He is a great example of how hard work and determination can help you achieve your goals. We are thankful for the amazing group of teachers and coaches who have poured into him over the years.”

Quote from WHS Head Baseball Coach Aaron Finders: “Derek Lee has a bright future in his academics and in baseball at Jamestown.  He has worked very hard to have this opportunity. I’m so proud and happy for Derek and his family.”

Quote from WTCS Basketball Coach Braaten:  “Derek has been everything you want in a student athlete. I can say without a doubt that he not only has been one of my most reliable, constant basketball players over the last 4 years, he also became a great friend. There are certain players in a coach’s career that will stand out as more than just a player. Derek is one of those players. Baseball is his priority, but as a basketball coach I could never tell. He would do anything and everything to try and make his basketball training fit within his baseball training. Derek has a rare gift of being very athletic, great iq on and off the court, driven, and coachable. These gifts are what makes him such a special basketball and baseball player. I know without a doubt he will continue to excel in every area of his life, academically and extracurricularly.”

WTCS’ FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Team, the Trinity Technicians, will be participating in the Minot Regional Qualifier at Minot State University on Saturday, January 12th.

“With adult Coaches to guide them, FIRST® LEGO® League teams (up to 10 members in grades 4-8) apply science, engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS®-based robots to perform autonomous ‘missions’ on a playing field. Along the way, they develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.”

In the morning, teams are judged in three areas: project presentation, core values, & robot design. In the afternoon, 13 robotics teams compete against each other in space-themed missions. The top three teams from the day move on to the North Dakota FLL State Championship Tournament in Grand Forks in February.

The Trinity Technicians would like to thank team sponsors: AE2S & the North Dakota Society of Professional Engineers-Chapter 5. We appreciate your support as the team grows!
