Achieving Academic Excellence at the Super Essex Conferenceards Program
The Essex County Athletic Directors Association (ECADA), along with the Super Essex Conference (SEC), recognized the top scholar-athletes from its member schools at the annual Karen Fuccello Scholar-Athlete Awards program on Tuesday, May 9th at Nanina’s In the Park. Among those recipients were twenty-three of the District’s best and brightest. NBOE’s scholar-athletes posted impressive GPAs and displayed leadership and prowess in their respective sports, all while making important contributions to the community through their commitment to service.
The following East Side student-athletes were recognized:
Lacrosse Captain Joao Silva Surpassed a Milestone
Red Raider Lacrosse Captain Joao Silva surpassed a milestone only 240 other lacrosse goalies have done in the sport's history, 500 varsity saves. Joao started his first varsity game with only 3 days of preparation and since then has exemplified the program's "One Goal" mentality. He lost all but 3 games in his Sophomore campaign to season-ending knee surgery. He dedicated himself to rehab and physical therapy to come back better than ever. In the closing minutes of the 2nd period against Passaic Valley, Joao made his 7th save of the game and 500th of his career. He currently holds a 59.6% save percentage in his Junior year.
