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 Make sure to vote for your fellow Bear; at the time of writing, she is in third place!
