The Leaf

Jason Merkel
Hey, I’m Jason Merkel. I am a sophomore at SHS, and this is my first year as a part of the staff of The Leaf. I joined because I enjoy writing, and I could get a break in my day to be creative. Outside of school, I play water polo and swim. I have been a part of the Varsity swim team since freshman year. Water polo is an important part of my life throughout the year. In the spring and summer, I play for a club team, and participate in many tournaments around the midwest. This summer I will be traveling to California for a Junior Olympic tournament with my team. I also enjoy traveling. I have been to all but seven states in the US, and I have been to three other countries around the world, France, Germany, and Canada. My favorite thing to do outside of school is to play sports and be active.
