EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence Post and eastbayri.com in conjunction with East Providence High School Athletic Director Bob Duarte and his coaching staff are introducing the latest incarnation of the Athlete of the Week.
Mr. Duarte, through consultation with his coaches, will determine which athlete to spotlight each week. Performance on and off the field of play will be considered.
The first student-athlete to be honored under the latest format is girls’ basketball sophomore guard Angela Leonardo. Her name was submitted for consideration by Townies’ head coach Mike Solitro.
The EPHS Student-Athlete of the Week will be a regular feature in the print edition of The Post and here at eastbayri.com for at least the winter sports season.
