GUERNSEY—If you followed Guernsey-Sunrise high school sports—basketball in particular, in the years between 2005 and 2009, you may remember a young man by the name of Rage Geringer who could hit a three-point shot from nearly any spot around the arc and do it very consistently. He was also an excellent football and track athlete and the Vikings had some great years while he was wearing a Viking uniform.
Also an excellent student, Rage has covered a lot of academic ground since his days at Guernsey-Sunrise. He just received his medical degree from the University of Washington and will be doing his residency in Denver in internal medicine. His final goal is to work as in Pulmonology/Critical Care.
Despite the hours of requirements for med school, Rage’s competitive nature is still alive and well as he, along with a fellow Guernsey-Sunrise graduate Stephen Castle, has qualified for the world obstacle course racing championships to be held in October in London, UK and in December in Iceland.
In a short letter he sent recently to the editor, Rage says he wants to be sure to pass along his gratitude to the people of the Guernsey area. “I know I couldn’t have come this far without the support and love from the town of Guernsey and Guernsey-Sunrise High School. I wanted to be sure they had an update.”
