KENILWORTH, NJ – Ibn McLean and Lauren Cantalupo have been named this week’s David Brearley High School Athletes of the Week.

Ibn McLean is a senior at David Brearley High School and has been playing basketball for eight years and baseball for twelve years. He started playing on the varsity baseball team the end of his freshman year, and he was on the varsity basketball team right from the beginning.  His best sports memory is scoring his 1,000 points which happened just this Monday January, 13 against American History High School. “I was so excited to see my parents face light up.” When McLean is not playing sports, he likes to go paint balling and spend time with his family.

Lauren Cantalupo is a senior and has been attending Kenilworth Schools her entire life. She has been cheering since she was a sophomore and competing since her junior year. “David Brearley High School cheer team is such a friendly and hardworking environment which makes the team as a whole want to work harder and obtain more skills.” Her best sports memory was when her stunt group were able to hit an elite skilled stunt that they had worked so hard for, and doing overall extremely well at most of our competitions. Her other hobbies all involve cosmetology. “I go to school for that, and I am on the road to getting my license in May. I also enjoy working at the salon in Cranford, Sofis Color Lounge, when I have some extra time.” Cantalupo plans on attending a university to study forensic psychology, and to also continue balancing work and my education. “I want to thank my cheer coaches for constantly pushing us all to work hard and to everyone who supports us constantly.”
