Two recent EC graduates were recently awarded the scholar-athlete award for their individual sports by the Catholic High School League. Of the 2020-2021 scholar-athlete leader nominees, Theresa Waller and Anthony Felix were selected as the scholar-athlete award recipients for cross country and soccer respectively.
“Theresa was a three-year varsity runner for EC. From the moment she joined the team, Theresa demonstrated leadership on the team. She found a natural capacity and talent for running and pushed herself year-round to be the best runner she could be. Her leadership played a significant role in leading the team to two regional titles, a CHSL championship title, and taking the team to states all three years she participated in the team. Theresa was recognized as All-Catholic all three years she ran for EC. Theresa is someone who not only pours herself into every workout and race, but who is deliberate about analyzing her performance, doing her best, and building team culture and spirit.” -Coach Mary Williams
“Anthony was the unquestioned leader of our team this past season. As captain, he led by example and brought others along with him. He played a vital role during all 4 seasons on the EC soccer team, culminating in a successful Senior season by leading Everest Collegiate to consecutive MHSAA Final Four appearances. He graduates as a member of the MIHSSCA Division 4 All-State Honorable Mention, the CHSL All-Catholic Team, and will continue his soccer career at Franciscan University of Steubenville. He will truly be missed, as a player, teammate, and young man. There is no one more deserving of the Brother George Synan Soccer Scholar-Athlete Award and I am proud of his achievements on and off the field.” -Coach John Haezebrouck
