Sleepy Hollow senior hoopster Grace Carr has been named the Con Edison Scholar-Athlete of the Week, it was announced on Wednesday.
Carr is the fourth girls basketball player to win the award this year, joining Hackley’s Stefanie Frolo, Rye’s Rachel Egan and Holy Child’s Maggie Welsh. With her impressive resume, it’s not surprise why Carr was selected as this week’s winner. My colleague Jermaine Dennis (@TheRealJDennis) will be writing a feature on Carr, which will be in Saturday’s edition of The Journal News.
I will post that article to the blog, along with my game story from the Clarkstown South-North Rockland game I cover Friday night. Should make for plenty of blog chow on a Saturday afternoon.
I wrote Con Ed articles for an entire year during my first year at LoHud and I absolutely hated it. The biggest reason? It makes me feel like such an underachiever in high school (which I was). Week in and week out I’d have to write about these teenagers who have still accomplished more than I could have ever thought about in high school. Having four winners (and counting) in one season really speaks to the dedication in and out of the classroom of the local female hoopsters.
Here’s a quick look at Carr’s ridiculous resume:
— Valedictorian of her graduating class (101.20 average)
— President of the National Honor Society
— Executive assistant editor of the school newspaper
— Assistant coach for CYO and TCBL basketball
— Captain of the varsity basketball team (10-2)
— Elite quartet, second violin
