How has participating in high school athletics benefited you?
I was able to play 2 years of soccer and 2 years of basketball for my high school and I am so thankful for each season I got to play. Playing for my high school gave me a chance to get to know many more of my teachers and administrators at my school. My best friends have come form playing sports at my school.
What made you decide to play the sport for which you were named the Penn Station Athlete of the Season?
My soccer club recently made rule where I could not play soccer in high school so I decided to play basketball for my school. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Playing a sport for my school is so much fun.
Quote from Athletic Director:
Tori deserves my highest recommendation. I coached Tori in basketball at Wakefield high school and it’s been my pleasure to watch her on and off the basketball court. Tori possess strong character, she highly motivated and very compassionate. She is very trust worthy and dependable, as a coach and educator I understand the rare value of students like. Tori. Not only is she a strong student she is also a leader amongst her peers. As a Wakefield high School staff member, I’ve been able to observe her in the school community, she has a strong work ethic, carries a heavy academic load all the while maintaining a stellar grade point average and continuing to regularly hone her athletic skills. As her high school coach, I’m excited to see how Tori will positively impact her university and community in years to come.
