The way we’re bringing our Sentinel Athletes of the Week to you has changed.
We’re no longer looking at athletes based on pure skill or what they did on the field the week before. Instead, we’re looking for an all-around athlete — someone who shows drive both on and off the field.
This year we’re taking nominations from area athletic directors and coaches every month and selecting student-athletes based on the complete picture. Our choices won’t be made on athletic achievement the previous week anymore. An AOTW could be a role player who does a lot of community service, or a four-year starter who is active in other school clubs, just to name a few examples.
We’re also presenting them on video each week in a new format that breaks away from our previous Q&As. We think this will provide a fresh look to an old staple.
And that brings us to the debut of the 2019-20 Athletes of the Week.

Our first AOTW is Cumberland Valley girls volleyball player Evelyn Hosie.
The senior middle hitter comes from a military family, and her father is an instructor at the Carlisle War College.
Hosie is working toward her dream of one day attending the Naval Academy while playing volleyball there and is currently working hard at her grades, SAT scores and more to increase her chances.
She’s one of the Eagles’ top returning players from last year’s District 3 championship squad. Entering Wednesday, Hosie has 27 kills and 10 blocks so far this season. That includes an 11-kill, five-block night Tuesday in a five-set loss to State College.
