Immaculate Heart High School’s annual Scholar Athlete Luncheon recently honored 113 students who participate in school sports and also maintain a 3.5 grade point average or higher.
“This is an amazing achievement!” exclaimed Immaculate Heart Athletic Director Maureen Rodriguez.
Welcoming parents to the luncheon, Rodriguez noted that 200 high school students – representing 42 percent of the school’s student body—play one or more sports at Immaculate Heart. Of that number, 113 students, or 57 percent, have achieved the designated status as scholar athletes this year.
“What’s more, I am so proud of their exceptional sportsmanship,” Rodriguez said. “They’re always cheering on their teams.”
Singled out for special recognition and presented with commemorative plaques were the top scholar athletes in each high school class, including seniors Ashley Conde, Oona Holahan, and Katie Hughes; juniors Natalie Day, Aurora Parks, and Mia Speier; sophomores Hera Ballard, Carlene Sanchez, Kira Toal, and Isabella Valenzuela; and freshmen Zoe Burg, Samantha Hutchinson, Violet Marko, and Isabel Ramos.
