St. Cecilia Academy News
Each year one student is named Athlete of the Year in recognition of her outstanding performance, leadership, and dedication to St. Cecilia Academy's athletics program. The award is named in memory of Megan Elizabeth Whaley, a recipient of the Athlete of the Year award in 2002. This year's Athlete of the Year is Sarah Davis '20! Coach Picklesimer, Athletics Director had this to say about Sarah:
"The selection process for this year's Megan Whaley Athlete of the Year was not an easy one. Not only do we have quite a collection of high caliber athletes, but we have a collection of student-athletes whose leadership, teamwork, and personality mirror the Megan Whaley that we hear about from so many.
This year's winner has participated in 2 sports during this year. She demands excellence of herself both in the classroom and in competition. She leads by example and is the first one to arrive and the last one to leave at both practices and competitions. She is a loyal teammate and friend and carries herself with dignity and respect. In this era of athletic specialization, this awardee managed to play two sports at SCA and excel at both."
It has truly been a pleasure to watch this young lady grow during her time here at SCA. Her tenacious grit and determination are always evident when she takes the field or court. You can always count on her to post somebody up on the basketball court even if she is outsized or with a flick of her wrist, she can send an 8.8 pound shot put flying across the field. You can always count on her to lay it all on the line and give everything she has to succeed. I feel that this athlete truly embodies what it means to be a St. Cecilia athlete.
The winner of the Megan Whaley Athlete of the Year Award for 2018-2019 is Sarah Davis!"
