Congratulations to Grace Weigele on being named one of News 12’s Scholar Athletes for 2020-2021! This winter, the Walt Whitman High School senior was surprised by News 12 with a $1,000 scholarship from Bethpage Federal Credit Union, and the announcement that she was chosen as one of News 12’s Scholar Athletes. As a senior, Grace plans to study Health Sciences at Stony Brook University and will run for their Division I Track & Field team next fall. The senior captain currently holds a 92 GPA, as well as numerous school records that include the 1500m and the 3000m, with record times for each at 4:52.95 and 10:18.41 respectively. We are so proud of Grace and this well-deserved recognition and we look forward to seeing how far she will go. Great job Grace!
