A perennial powerhouse and all-around strong student, Ward Melville High School senior Alexis Reinhardt has been named a News 12/Bethpage Federal Credit Union Scholar Athlete. 

Alexis, or Lexi as she is often called, has been in varsity field hockey since the eighth grade. She has also been on the varsity lacrosse team for the past four years. Earlier this year, she was named a Player of the Year by Newsday for her contribution to the sport of field hockey and was an integral part of leading Ward Melville to the state championship. 

As a student-athlete, Lexi is focused, driven and determined to always do her best both in the classroom and on the field. She was captain this past season for the Ward Melville field hockey team and earned All-State honors. Lexi has taken on leadership roles as an underclassman for the lacrosse team as she is organized, motivated and a true leader. She earned All-Division Honors in both her sophomore and junior lacrosse seasons. 

“Lexi embodies the true meaning of a student-athlete, as she holds both her academics and athletics in the highest regard,” Peter Melore, executive director of health, physical education, recreation, health services, drivers’ education and athletics, said.

“All in all, she is simply one of the best all-around young ladies here at Ward Melville – student, athlete and person,” field hockey coach Shannon Sioss said. 

This well-rounded student-athlete will be continuing her lacrosse career at Cornell University in the fall.
