Over the last month, six of Citysquash’s eight high school seniors graduated from their respective high schools with the remaining two seniors set to graduate at the end of this month. Family members, staff and supporters have been in attendance to see these great students accept their diplomas and complete their high school careers. What is even more impressive is the recognition that these students received or will receive upon graduation. In total, the CitySquash high school Class of 2011 won eight awards including two Athlete of the Year Awards and one Valedictorian. Two CitySquash underclassmen were also honored with prestigious awards at the end of the school year. A list of high schools, college matriculation plans and awards can be found below.
