Portuguese student Samantha Correia named Athlete of the Week

Samantha Correia from Kenilworth, NJ, has been named this week’s Athlete of the Week.

Samantha is a freshman at David Brearley and plays on the soccer and track team. She began playing soccer at six years old and just started track this year. When it comes to Samantha’s best sports memory she says there are so many. 

“But, there are two that stand out the most. First, playing my first varsity soccer game with the most amazing teammates and coach. 

My second would have to be running my first race and being so nervous but my teammates and coaches were there to support and cheer me on.” Samantha’s other hobbies include running and hanging with family and friends.
