Ayanna Matthews Wins Inter-Ac Honor

It's one thing to be a prominent three-sport athlete.

It's much more to be Ayanna Matthews.

Wednesday night, Matthews was feted as the Penn Charter winner of the Inter-Ac League's Girls Athletic Directors Award. She is shown here with Director of Upper School Travis Larrabee (left), Head of School Darryl J. Ford (right) and her parents, Charles and Tracy Matthews.

One senior girl from each I-A school is honored. There is no overall winner. Per league tradition, the awards are presented to multi-sport athletes who show dedication to their teams and school, and represent the I-A in outstanding fashion while displaying sportsmanship and leadership.

Matthews' sports are water polo, basketball and softball. She is bound for Princeton and it's expected she'll focus on hoops.

Congrats, Ayanna!!
