KENILWORTH, NJ – Igor Santos and Alexis Pinto have been named this week’s David Brearley High School Athletes of the Week.
Igor Santos is a senior at David Brearley High School who plays on the winter and spring track team and played on the varsity soccer team. He began soccer at the young age of five and has not stopped playing ever since. Santos started track just three years ago. “There is something about track makes me come back every year and compete against the best runners in the county. I just love the competition it brings. The workouts are brutal, but in the end winning a medal is the best feeling in the world.” Santos best sports memory was Senior Night against Union Catholic. “That night was special already and I scored my fourth goal of the season. Scoring on senior night just made it more unforgettable having all my family and friends come and support not only me, but my teammates.” In his free time Santos likes to workout to get in good shape and watch Manchester United play live during Europe league or premier leagues matches.
Alexis Pinto, or Lexi as most people call her, is a senior and has been a cheerleader at David Brearley High School since her freshman year. As a cheerleader for Brearley sporting events and a member of the competition team, Pinto has played a pivotal role in the group’s success. Her favorite sports memories are when she was able to travel with the squad, as well as participating in team building activities. Pinto was honored to be named one of the cheer captains for her senior year. She states, “I hope I was able to guide my younger teammates in a positive direction on the mat and off.” When she is not at cheer Pinto works as a babysitter and enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She looks forward to her next chapter after Brearley and hopes to continue her cheer career in college.
