National Girls and Women in Sports Day was held at Fanuiel Hall recently and was co-sponsored by the MIAA. Newton South’s Athletic Director Pat Gonzalez attended along with volunteer coaches Sally Lee and Lisa Goodwin Robbins. In addition, South student athletes, Allison Robbins and Sarah King were asked to represent South at the event.
Congratulations goes to to volunteer volleyball coaches Sally Lee and Lisa Goodwin Robbins for their recognition as Senior Olympians. They participated in the 2015 Senior Olympics held at Minnesota this past summer. Both coaches were part of the Gold medal volleyball team B Division III. Mrs. Robbins also received a Bronze medal for the 100 yard back stroke in her age bracket. Mary Tom from Newton was also recognized as part of the Gold Medal volleyball team. The motto of the event was “Leading the way”. These women are truly trail blazers: our students are lucky to have such good role models.
