Sayre, Dougherty Earn Summit High School Athlete of The Week Honors

October 15, 2013 at 4:37 PM

SUMMIT, NJ - Tennis Player Caroline Sayre and Varsity Football running back Colm Dougherty have been named Summit High School Athletes of the Week, presented by The Alternative Press of Summit, for the week ending October 13.

Each week throughout the school year, one girl and boy athlete will be honored for distinguishing herself / himself in the arena of competition, in the classroom, and for demonstrating exemplary, Hilltopper-caliber sportsmanship and leadership qualities.

Sayre, a junior, plays second doubles for the girls’ tennis team, and teamed with Carly Leiter, to defeat both Chatham and Scotch Plains.  Against a strong Chatham team currently favored to win the State Section Title, Sayre's strong play with her teammate Leiter earned the Hilltoppers their only victory of the day.

Coach Kristen Turturiello stated, “In a 4-1 loss, the second doubles was the only pair to win for Summit. In both matches, Caroline did not double fault once, she had numerous volleys for winners at the net, and was a very dominant player. More importantly, this team played JV last year, and this year finished fourth in the Union County Tournament.”

Senior co-Captain Dougherty carried the ball 23 times for 130 yards and two touchdowns in Summit's stunning 20-point, fourth-quarter comeback against Rahway.  “Colm single-handedly brought us back to life on Saturday,” said Head Coach Kevin Kostibos.
 
On the season, Dougherty has rushed 55 times and gained 494 yards, for an impressive yards-per-carry average of nearly nine yards.  He has scored 11 touchdowns for the unbeaten Hilltoppers, including five alone in Summit's win over AL Johnson.
 
Also of note this week is the new graphic identity designed especially for the Summit High School Athlete of The Week program.  The logo was designed by Summit High School (SHS) senior Madeleine Graminga in SHS teacher Don Standing's Computer Graphics class.  "It is only fitting that the logo for a program that celebrates the outstanding achievements of Hilltopper student athletes be conceptualized and designed by one of Summit High School's talented students," said Greg Elliott, COO / Publisher of The Alternative Press of Summit.  "Just like the athletes that are honored each week, Madeleine did an amazing job, and we thank her and Don Standing for their support and contributions."
