Anna Cancelarich, a junior at Windham High School is The Windham Eagle’s Athlete of the Week. The 17-year-old believes kids should play sports because it helps to keep them active and it builds character.
“Anna helped to secure our SP win last week in a tough match,” Tennis Coach Jenna Willey said. “She went to a tiebreaker first set and pulled it off in the second set. She has been extremely coachable this spring.”
Cancelarich loves to be outdoors paddling boarding and hiking. She also loves hanging out with her friends, enjoying the young life.
She has also learned how to be a positive teammate, naming her brother, Dominick as the most influential person in her sports career. “He was my inspiration to be the best athlete possible.” Cancelarich said.
She plans to get a degree in science from Penn State and plans to study abroad.
Cancelarich lives at home with her mom (Lila), dad (Paul) and her brother.
