AHS Female Student Athletes Selected for MIAA Women in Sports Conference
Attleboro High School is proud to announce that out of the hundreds of female athletes in our program, two outstanding seniors were selected by the Blue Pride coaching staff to represent the Lady Bombardiers at the MIAA's commemoration of National Girls and Women in Sport Day.
On Thursday, Athletics Director Mark Houle and Assistant Volleyball Coach Wendy DaSilva accompanied honorees Briana Robitaille and Abby Oliver to Boston's Faneuil Hall for this celebration of the impact of women in athletics.
Bri's activities include volleyball and track since ninth grade. She was the 55-meter dash state champ and runner-up in New England. She was selected to be a student peer aide in the Special Education MDAP program, where she gives time daily to work with students with disabilities.
"A bright, determined, and hard-working student, Bri encapsulates all that is desired in a college-bound student," said guidance counselor Joanne Ginalski. "Her diligence, never-say-die attitude and strength of spirit spill over from sports into all aspects of her life, rounding her out as an exceptional person overall."
Abby's activities include four years of Leo Club, soccer (captain) and basketball (captain); two years of track, lacrosse, Attleboro Recreation Committee and a member of The Sun Chronicle All Star Soccer Team
"Personable, intelligent and modest are but a few of scores of attributes I could utilize to describe Abby," said guidance counselor Joanne Ginalski. "Quite simply, she is the whole package: her academic record speaks for itself; her volunteer efforts benefit children and the disadvantaged and her ability to deftly negotiate a balance between being a leader and a team player proves she can master any challenge presented to her."
