Samantha Brown of Ipswich High School receives 2012 CAL Scholarship.
The fourth annual Gabriel Pacione Cape Ann League Scholarship was awarded to Ipswich Senior Samantha Brown following the Cape Ann League Track & Field Championships held at North Andover High School yesterday. Students, parents and coaches gathered as Steve Sawyer, track coach for Hamilton Wenham, introduced each candidate by name and congratulated them for their nomination and for the goodwill their performance and sportsmanship has brought to their schools.
“The decision never seems to get easier” remarked one of the coaches. “These student-athletes are all very talented and deserving of this scholarship.” This year, the coaches selected the standout hurdler and mid-distance runner from Ipswich. Samantha is a member of the 2011 State Champion Hepthalon Team and the All-New England 4 x 400 team.
Ipswich Coaches Marty Binette and Gardy O’Flynn describe Samantha as one of the hardest working track athletes they have had the pleasure to coach. Sam will take her talents to Elon, North Carolian next year to run and study at Elon University.
