At the end of each school year, Servite Athletics presents four special awards to student-athletes who excel in the classroom (Scholar-Athlete of the Year), on the field of play (Athlete of the Year), in the community (Frank Ryan Service Award) and personally (Sherer Courage Award). These awards are given out at our annual Hall of Fame Dinner and All Sports Banquet held at the Orange Hill Restaurant.
The Servite scholar-athlete represents a young man who is not only a varsity letterman but also a major contributor to the success of their athletic program while maintaining the highest GPA of all our student-athletes. This year's Scholar-Athlete of the Year is Alexander Foy.
Foy is a varsity letter winner in volleyball helping the Friars advance to the CIF-SS D2 quarterfinals this season after finishing Trinity League play 8-2 overall. During his free time, he volunteers at St. Juliana’s and St. Hedwig’s, working as an altar server. He is also an Eagle Scout candidate.
On campus, he is involved with our Priory Leadership Program serving as the Bonfilius Prior while also working as an Admissions Ambassador. In addition, he is an active member of the National Honors Society and California Scholarship Federation as well as the chair of the Campus Ministry Committee.
In the classroom, his academic schedule consisted of taking 17 Honors placement classes and 8 Advanced placement courses while being named a National Merit Finalist. He earned Principal’s High Honor Roll with Distinction all four years, never earning below an A in any class. The counseling department shared that he is highly respected by all of his teachers, excels in multiple subjects and has an enthusiasm for learning that is evident in the pride he takes in his work and subsequent grades. Our scholar-athlete of the year is graduating with a 4.92 GPA as our salutatorian and will be attending the University of California, San Diego in the fall.
