Students Honored for Academic & Athletic Excellence

Posted: February 6, 2013

Five Lawrentians have been honored for their academic and athletic excellence.

Matt Apuzzi '14 gained top honors at the Mercer County High School Wrestling Championship earlier this month. Apuzzi pinned his opponent (in the 195 lbs. division) in a mere 1:54. He was selected as the tournament's "Outstanding Wrestler" by the Trentonian and by the coaches representing the 16 teams that participated in the tournament.

Fifth Formers Lauren Eckhardt, Sophie Epstein, and Julia Minnetian have earned spots on the 2012 Gladiator by SGI / National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) High School National Academic Squad. The Squad program recognizes those high school seniors who have achieved a cumulative, unweighted GPA of 3.5 out of 4.0 or the equivalent through the first quarter of the 2012-13 school year.

Ice hockey standout Emily Kreuger '13 was named this week's "Female Athlete of the Week" by the Trenton Times. Krueger skates at center for Big Red.
