Consistency counts. In the classroom, on the playing field and, eventually, in the workplace. And when you make a name for yourself as someone that people can count on to get the job done, people take notice. Amanda Cummings is an athlete who has gotten a lot of things done for Verona sports teams, consistently, and often in a very quiet way. For that reason, she is this week’s Verona Sports Boosters Senior Athlete of the Week.
Cummings has played in 11 games for the Hillbilly girls’ basketball team this season, and she has come away with points in all but two. In Verona’s victory over Cedar Grove last week, Cummings put up six points of the 30-28 final score.
Basketball isn’t the only sport she has played at Verona High School, where she has also been a fairly consistent presence on the honor rolls, too. Co-Captain Cummings was a key part of the defense for the Verona girls soccer team that went all the way to the NJSIAA North Jersey, Section 1, Group 1 title. Along the way, she had a hand in nine shutouts.
During the 2011-2012 school year, the Verona Sports Boosters will be recognizing a different senior athlete at Verona High School every week. The Boosters support male and female athletes in all VHS sports through a variety of fundraisers and recognition events.
