Raelynn Voislow joins just two others (Dexter Lawson Jr. of Bloomfield and Conor Harkins of Greenwich) as the only two-time CPTV UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week winners in the poll’s history. Congratulations to the Windsor Locks High School Girls Basketball star for the vote, along with scoring her 1000th career point last week.
The senior’s 25 points assisted the Raiders in a squeaker, Thursday. Her teammate Addy Pelletier pushed Windsor Locks over the Somers Spartans, 45-44 Thursday when she nailed a three-point jumper to win the game with 0.5 seconds left. Voislow notched her 1,000th career point in the victory. “Rae” first won the CPTV UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week award last February.
Watch in the above video player as host Frankie Graziano interviewed Rae at Windsor Locks High School. The two discussed how the 1000-point achievement resonated with her. Voislow also talked about winning the UChoose award twice and a relative who really goes all out to support her at Lady Raiders games.
