Wilton High School senior Makenna Pearsall was recently named a News 12 Connecticut Scholar Athlete.
With a 3.9 grade point average, Makenna is a member of the National Honor Society, as well as a three-sport athlete.
Makenna plays soccer in the fall and basketball in the winter, but said she favors the springtime sport of lacrosse, in which she has won a state title and was named an All-American player.
In her spare time, Makenna coaches children with disabilities and teaches religious education. She said she looks forward to playing lacrosse next year at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Ind., where she will team up with her sister Casey.
