Wells High School sophomore Madison Szczygiel has been selected Student- Athlete of the Month for February 2016. This award is in recognition of her academics, sportsmanship on and off the field and excellence in school sports including her running performances at the State Class B Indoor Track Meet at Bowdoin College and at the New England Championships in February.

Presenting a plaque to Szczygiel on April 6th was WHS Director of Student Activities Jack Molloy and Pamela Moody-Maxon of Moody Maxon Real Estate. Szcygiel’s coach for the WHS Girls Indoor Track and Field Team is Jennifer Lewia.

"Madison is a very talented, hardworking and focused athlete and a joy to have on the team," commented Coach Lewia recently.

According to Lewia, Szcygiel, placed 4th in the 800mm run with a time of 2:27.36 at the Class B State Meet. Finishing with that time qualified her for the New England Championships at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Roxbury Massachusetts. There, Szcygiel ran the 1000mm Run and placed 23rd with a time of 3:15.15. In doing so, she set a new WHS record for running the 1000mm. Szcyzgiel also plays soccer and runs outdoor track for WHS.

Since there were no competitive sporting events scheduled for Wells High School athletes in March, school administrators decided to recognize “two” student athletes for Student-Athlete of the Month for February. The first selected, and already reported on, was Nathaniel Hayward who received this distinction for winning the Class B State title for the 1-Meter Diving competition.

Cole Harrison Insurance Agency and Moody Maxon Real Estate are sponsors of the Student-Athlete of the Month award program at Wells High School. It is the WHS administration that selects the recipients for this award. Student-Athlete of the Month has been awarded to student athletes at WHS since 2007.
