MB Students Named Gatorade ‘Players of the Year’ in Basketball and Soccer

MB is pleased to report its first-ever Gatorade Players of the Year — and not one, but two!
Junior Oluchi E. ’18 was recently awarded the Gatorade Player of the Year in girls’ basketball, the first basketball player at Moses Brown to have achieved this honor. Poom Mera ’17 is Rhode Island’s Gatorade Boys Soccer Player of the Year, another first.
The Gatorade POY program recognizes the nation’s most outstanding high school athletes for athletics, academics, and character. Gatorade will donate $1,000 to sports organizations selected by each athlete: Oluchi chose the Hopkinton Recreation Department, where she developed her passion for basketball, and Poom chose Project GOAL, a Providence nonprofit which supports local disadvantaged youth through after-school tutoring and soccer programs.
