Osceola Creek Middle School recently honored the recipients of the Scholar-Athlete Award for October.
The award, sponsored by the School Police, honors varsity athletes who also excel in academics, effort, behavior and school spirit, and serve as a role model for others.
This month’s honorees, both seventh graders, carry high grade point averages and play varsity sports.
Boys baseball honored 13-year-old Daulton Frank.
“Daulton is the starting second baseman for the Osceola Creek baseball team,” coach Pete Pagliaro said. “He has a 5.00 GPA and is a member of the Culinary Arts Academy.”
Frank is undecided on a career, however, he wants to attend Florida State University.
Riley Sullivan, 12, was honored in girls softball.
“It is with great pleasure that I nominate Riley Sullivan for Scholar Athlete of the Month,” Athletic Director Judy DeCosta said. “As a member of the Osceola Creek girls softball team this season, she has demonstrated hard work, leadership and determination. Ms. Sullivan is also on the girls basketball and track teams at Osceola Creek. While taking advanced and high school credit classes as a seventh grader, Ms. Sullivan demonstrates great success in the classroom by maintaining a 4.67 GPA.”
Sullivan, who is also the student council secretary, is undecided on a career and also wants to attend FSU.
