Congrats to UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week
Kelsey White, Middletown softball

Kelsey White, a sophomore on the Middletown High softball team, has been voted our sixth UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week for the spring 2015 season!

The sophomore third baseman hit three homers in a 20-5 victory over Plainville last Tuesday. She had two hits, including a two-run single, in Middletown’s 15-3 win over Bristol Central Friday. Kelsey, one of five sophomore starters for the Blue Dragons, also made a nice backhand stop on a hard-hit grounder.

We’ll profile Kelsey Wednesday May 20 on the new edition of In Focus!

Shelton pitcher Mike Cowell, Amity softball player Katie Koshes, New Milford girls lacrosse player Marisa McLaughlin, North Branford softball player Lindsay Golia and Northwest Catholic girls lacrosse player Lauren Cenci were our previous spring 2015 honorees.
