Cindy Wu, a senior at Paramus High School, was one of four students from the greater New York metropolitan area to receive a Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) Triple Impact Competitor Scholarship.
Entrants are asked to submit an essay explaining how they exemplify the ideal defined in Evaluating Your Game: Becoming a Triple-Impact Competitor by PCA Founder Jim Thompson.
The main components of a Triple Impact Competitor are listed as:
- Personal Mastery: Making oneself better.
- Leadership: Making one’s teammates better.
- Honoring the Game: Making the game better.
According to northjersey.com, Wu is a senior tennis player at Paramus H.S. who is in her second year playing doubles. Paramus tennis coach Jon Morrisette said that Wu delivers “unbelievable” groundstrokes and that “She’s really going to score a lot of points for us.”
The other New York area winners were:
- Rebekah Heaphy – Long Island Lutheran Highschool (West Hempstead, NY)
- Jorge Hernandez – Leonia High School (Leonia, NJ)
- Shane Pearley, Berkeley Carroll High School (Brooklyn, NY)
