F.C. High Students Take Athletic Talents to College

418jagsignThree students from Falls Church High School were celebrated this month for signing to play their sports at the college level. Alicia Carlin will swim at St. Leo’s University in Florida, Taylor Thomas will wrestle at the Virginia Military Institute, and Dieon Dupont will play football at Shenandoah University. Carlin, though only on the Falls Church High swim and dive team for a year, made a big impact in that time. She was named to the all-conference team this past season. Thomas took the district title for the third straight time this season, won the region, and took second in the state tournament. He was captain of the wrestling team and also led the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Falls Church High. Dupont has been a three-year starter on the varsity football team, of which he was captain for two years. He has been selected as all-conference and all-region running back. (Courtesy Photo)
