Vote Vanessa Benjamin For ECC Athlete Of The Week!

Story by Ben Fyke, Staff Writer/Editor

Junior Vanessa Benjamin of the girls soccer team was nominated for ECC Athlete of the Week Monday, for the week 9/23-9/29.

Benjamin, who was named All-ECC Division III at the end of last year, has starred on an otherwise average 4-5 girls team this season. She has two game-winning goals, and three goals total so far this year. Out of these games, she has shined in, the team is 2-1. 

Her nomination is a result of an impressive underclassmen career on the Bears. Last year, she scored four goals in one game on two occasions, coming close to a school record set in 2003 by Lindsey Trubia. Benjamin was instrumental in carrying the team to the Class M state finals and also promoting them to ECC Division II.

Voting will remain open until October 3rd when the winner will be announced at eccathletics.org/. Make sure to vote for your fellow Bear; at the time of writing, she is in third place!
