Seneca Names Scholar-Athletes of Month of December
Jesse Irvin, Athletic Director at Seneca Valley, announced that junior Chinenye Nwachukwu and freshman Diego Turcios have been named the Seneca Valley Scholar-Athletes for the Month of December.
Chinenye Nwachukwu is a starter on the girls’ varsity basketball team. She is a second-year varsity player and played JV as a freshman. She plays volleyball in the fall as well.
Chinenye is currently carrying a 4.0 GPA. She also participates in Chorus and performed in the past winter concert while juggling school work, basketball practice/games and maintains straight A’s. “She has a positive attitude and has improved her basketball skills to become a starter this season,” said Irvin. “She is a joy to coach and works hard every day at practice and with her teammates. She encourages her teammates positively and shows great sportsmanship on and off the court.”
Diego Turcios is a freshman who is an active member of the wrestling team, regularly attends practices and study halls. He hesitantly joined the wrestling team, and his involvement has now exploded.
