While not necessarily performing always in the limelight, these young ladies are the kind of student-athletes that bring with them a certain quality that no team can function successfully without and that every coach is proud to have as part of their team.
This year’s winners are:
Chelsea Jones Purnell Swett High School Robeson Community College
