Soccer player Vanessa Benjamin (sophomore) is nominated for ECC Athlete of the Week (October 15-October 21).

Within just three games, Vanessa made four goals for the Stonington Girls’ Soccer Team. Thankful for just the nomination, Vanessa said, “It’s really nice putting in all the hard work and getting rewarded for it by getting nominated. Even if I don’t win, it is still a really big accomplishment.” Soccer is a major part of her life but she participates in other sports such as indoor track and outdoor track; athletics is a huge part of her life.

As for other goals considering the soccer team, she hopes that they “win ECCs and states if they get there.” She is proud of how well the girls’ soccer team has been performing this season and hopes they will continue.

Voting ends Friday, October 26 — vote for Vanessa!
