CRANFORD, NJ – Congratulations to this week’s athletes of the week, Kelly McAuliffe and Matt Perino.
McAuliffe, a junior on the gymnastics team has posted consistently strong scores this season. She recently earned a season-high 35.9 in the all-around to help the Cougars set a new school record.
When asked what she loves about high-school gymnastics McAuliffe said, “I love competing at the high-school level, we are a team and everyone cheers for each other.”
McAuliffe is also a member of the track and field team where she competes in pole vault and she is also a member of the ensemble choir.
Perino, a senior on the varsity soccer team, scored three goals in the last two games, including the game winning goal in the 1-0 win over Union.
Playing soccer since he was very young, Perino loves the competitive aspect of the sport, “I love playing as a team and the excitement of a close game.”
Perino is also a member of the high-school baseball team and hope to go on to play either baseball or soccer at the college level.
