Each week, we recognize local students’ accomplishments as part of our Student Athletes of the Week program. Today, we’re excited to highlight Jack Carasso and Sydney Mains, basketball players who display exceptional leadership skills both on and off the court! We’re amazed by how much these students have accomplished so far this year, and we’re proud to be part of a community that fosters hard work and dedication. Well done, Jack and Sydney!
