Riley McDevitt Flick ’17 was one of eight student-athletes honored by the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame's Delaware County Chapter on Tuesday, March 21 with a Scholar-Athlete Award.
In the past 54 years, the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame has "honored and inducted 696 incredible men and women who have made a lasting impact in Pennsylvania through extraordinary athletic achievement and contributions," according to its website. The Delaware County chapter's Scholar-Athlete Awards Committee selects a group of outstanding students-athletes each year, who are first nominated by their schools, to honor at its winter sports season awards luncheon.
A high honors student, Riley earned the swim team's Excellence Award as a freshman and junior, was a member of the All-Inter-Ac League team and has been a team co-captain for two years. She also made the All-Main Line first team as a junior. She holds a number of school swimming records, and was interviewed by Fox29 as their Athlete of the Week the week of Feb. 4.
Last May, Riley was also one of 36 Delaware County students recognized by Congressman Patrick Meehan with the Congressional Scholar-Athlete Award. That award is given to students who exemplify "the selfless dedication to school and sports that define the leaders of tomorrow."
