The Girls' February Athlete of the Month is Theresa Kervick 

Theresa experienced a very strong month of February as she focused on the team objective of pushing for a playoff berth. Although this goal would ultimately not materialize, Theresa finished the month playing hard. Her statistics would not always astound you, but Theresa's team-first attitude would impress you. Theresa played in every game as if it were her last. Theresa is a silent leader, as she lets her actions and work ethic lead the way. Although she had many strong games in February, a highlight was her first career double-double of 10 points and 12 rebounds against Hamden Hall. A truly outstanding senior season.
