SUMMIT, NJ - Swim Team member Jennifer Collins and Ice Hockey's Wilson Lees have been honored as Summit High School Athletes of the Week, presented by TAPinto Summit, for the week ending December 10.

Each week throughout the school athletic year, an athlete or athletes will be honored for distinguishing themselves in the arena of competition, in the classroom, and for demonstrating exemplary, Hilltopper-caliber sportsmanship and leadership qualities.

Collins, new to Summit, joined the swim team as a senior and -- after falling ill -- has been working hard to get healthy and swam well in Summit's overwhelming victory over Elizabeth. She won the 500 Free and was also on top of the podium as part of the Hilltoppers win in the 400 Freestyle Relay.

Counted on to be a big factor in the team's success this season, Collins is willing to compete in almost any event.

Senior goaltender Lees is sporting a spiffy 1.0 Goals Against Average after leading the Maroon and White to wins over Livingston, Indian Hills and Montclair. He had 49 saves in the three victories as state-ranked Summit opened the season on an undefeated run.

Lees was a Third Team, All Group B selection last season.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds
