Congratulations to senior athlete Erin DiMeglio from Plantation, FL – GTM Sportswear’s Athlete of the Month for March 2013.
“To receive such an honorable and prestigious award means the world to me,” said DiMeglio. “I hope my story and receiving this award will inspire others to follow their dreams.”
Each month, six finalists are selected by the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) and GTM Sportswear for strong athletic and academic performance. The finalists are presented via ballot to a group of high school sports writers, high school coaches, NHSCA staff and GTM Sportswear representatives to choose a winner.
DiMeglio lettered all four years in basketball and was the first female high school quarterback in Florida. She maintains a 4.35 cumulative grade point average (GPA) and received the 2012 Florida Achievement Award. DiMeglio has been accepted into the University of Central Florida and plans to try out for their Division One basketball program.
“In addition to athletics, I am proud of my accomplishments in the classroom,” said DiMeglio. “I try to lead by example. It is as important to take care of your body as it is your mind.”
