Nicole Antonowicz is the CPTV UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week after receiving 39 percent of the 4,119 votes cast in this week’s poll.
The junior tossed a no-hitter for the Wolcott Eagles–the second consecutive one for the team (Carrigan Costello vs. Crosby-Waterbury the Monday before)– last Wednesday in an 8-0 win vs. Thomaston. She struck out 15 and walked three. Antonowicz was 3-for-5 at the plate: triple, double, and an RBI.
Frankie Graziano interviewed Nicole at George Babcock Field on the campus of Wolcott High School, which you can watch above. They talked about Nicole’s relationship with her teammates and a traumatic incident that led to a change in what Nicole is looking to do in life.
