Senior Cayla Katz was recently named as one of four student-athletes that were chosen and recognized at the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame’s Year 14th annual Student Athletes of the Year Achievement Awards ceremony where 16 finalists represented the top high school athletes.

The ceremony was held at the Westin Hotel in Town Center, was emceed by WAVY-TV news anchor Katie Collett, and pro football player and Virginia Sports Hall of Fame inductee Kenny Easley as the keynote speaker.

The four finalists ultimately included two males and two females with 4.0 or above GPAs, who have already received scholarship offers in their chosen sport at a Division-1 school, as well as individuals who have participated in mission trips to serve underdeveloped communities.

“Honestly, I was shocked when I was selected, but I was honored to have been awarded,” Katz said. “I am thankful for my family, friends, and coaches who have supported me and have shaped me as a person.  I have not decided on my college choice yet, but I will soon.”

Katz is a three sport star athlete and is on track to become a 12-time letter winner and currently holds a 4.06 GPA. She has been named captain of the school’s cross country, indoor track, and varsity soccer teams.  Katz has excelled on the soccer field, selected to the region and state Olympic Development teams while also serving as the school’s representative at the Student Athlete Leadership training program.  She is a member of six honor societies, numerous school organizations, and in her “free” time lends herself to volunteer work within the community.
