     Sophie Hart, a senior at Farmington High School, has been named a 2021 Athena Award Winner. The St. Paul Area Athena Award program honors outstanding female high school senior student-athletes from St. Paul and suburban public and independent high schools for their athletic achievements. The award is based on excellence in individual sports or for participation and accomplishments in team sports. 

     Sophie plays center for the FHS Tigers Varsity Girls’ Basketball Team. Last year she helped the team to a program-best record of 29-9 and to the state tournament for the first time. After high school she plans to attend North Carolina State in Raleigh and play in the Atlantic Coast Conference. When announcing her commitment to North Carolina State, in a statement posted on Twitter she said, “I want to take this time to thank the following people. All the coaches, especially the Minnesota Fury and Farmington Basketball programs, who have helped me develop. All my teammates who have pushed me and made the game so enjoyable. My family and friends who have sacrificed so much for me to be in this position. I would not be where I am without all of you.” 

Congratulations, Sophie!
