Student-Athletes of the Week

Saharat Verrier and Lateisha Small - Week of 5/6/19

Athletic Leadership

The "Matawan Regional High School Student-Athlete of the Week" program serves to recognize players who are stars both on and off the field. Student-athletes who demonstrate leadership, dedication, and perseverance in school and in the community can be nominated by coaches, athletic directors, and teachers for this honor.


The program will recognize not only the best athletes on each team, but also those who dedicate time to school , volunteer organizations, or have overcome a personal obstacle.


Congratulations to all of our student-athletes!

Saharat Verrier

After a very successful campaign last season, senior tennis player Saharat Verrier looks to replicate and build upon his performance. Saharat has been on Matawan's tennis team all four years of high school and is currently competing in second singles. As a student-athlete, he manages not only to excel in tennis, but to perform at the highest level in his studies at the same time. Saharat plans to attend William Patterson University next year to study art and design.

Lateisha Small

After many seasons filled with success, powerhouse thrower, Lateisha Small, hopes to build on her past victories and continue to break records. Coming off a very successful indoor track and field season with a record breaking performance, she hopes to continue her success into the future. Lateisha has proven that hard work and dedication pay off as she qualifies for the MOC and was named top thrower in Monmouth County.
