The Monroe-Woodbury Athletic Director, Ron Montalto, would like to announce the Athlete of the Week for the week ending May 6, 2016. The “Athlete of the Week” for the Monroe-Woodbury Girls Varsity Golf Team is senior Jessica Rallo, coached by William Earl.
Jessica is a four-year member and captain of this year’s Girls Golf Team. Recently Jessica posted the lowest round of her career, a 41, at Monroe-Country Club. She has been a dedicated participant and leader on the team since she began as a ninth grader. Her dedication to the sport is evident by the amount of practice and preparation she puts into every match. Jessica’s goal this season is to return to the Section IX Tournament, which will be held on May 23rd and 25th at Apple Greens Golf Course in New Paltz, and then qualify for the NYSPHSAA Girls Golf Championship at Bethpage State Park in Long Island. Aside from golfing, Jessica has been a 4 year Scholar Athlete and named to the Top 25 of her graduating class. She’s a junior member of the Monroe Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and also volunteers at Orange Regional Medical Center. She has recently been accepted to Rutgers University and plans to major in Exercise Science and Sports Studies.
