CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Covenant School field hockey player Lizzy Shim and Monticello High School football player Kevin Jarrell were named winners of CBS19's Student Athlete of the Year award for the 2017-18 school year on Thursday.
Shim completed her career at Covenant with a 4.0 GPA. She helped the Eagles win a VISAA state title in field hockey as a junior in 2016, then get back to the state championship game as a senior last fall. Shim also played on the Covenant girls lacrosse team that reached the state quarterfinals this spring.
Shim has been committed to Virginia to play field hockey since she was a sophomore. She'll finally report to Grounds in late July.
"I'm super excited to finally step on the blue turf and be part of the team that I've been waiting to be a part of for so long," Shim said. "It's definitely more challenging. Everything's just amped up another level. But I'm excited for the new challenge."
Jarrell will report to William and Mary in late June, after signing with the Tribe last December, just days after giving his verbal commitment.
Jarrell spent the past four years rewriting the Monticello football record book as the Mustangs' starting quarterback. He leaves as the school's all-time leader in total offense, passing yards, and rushing yards among quarterbacks, among other statistics. He was named the Jefferson District offensive player of the year as a senior in 2017.
In the classroom, Jarrell has a 4.6 GPA at Monticello.
"That was probably the major reason William and Mary was so high on my list. The academics there are going to challenge me and push me," Jarrell said. "Finishing up high school has been kind of crazy. But just getting down there, getting with all the guys, starting classes and stuff is just really exciting."
Jarrell was CBS19's Student Athlete of the Week on September 28.
Jarrell and Shim were among the 35 student-athletes from Central Virginia schools honored by the CBS19 Student Athlete of the Week program this school year.
