Warwick Valley High School is proud to select senior tennis and soccer player Wakeley Banker as this weeks’ Bill Garcia Agency Allstate Student–Athlete of the Week.
Wakeley and his tennis teammates defeated North Rockland in the Wounded Warrior Challenge to secure the victory for the Wildcats. Wakeley was a standout center–back and captain for the boys’ soccer team in the fall and earned All-Section Recognition.
Wakeley carried a 102.5-weighted average this past quarter and has been recognized by the NYSPHSAA as a scholar–athlete every season of his high school career. Wakely is a member of the National Honor Society and has accumulated over 400 hours of community service. His class load includes Advanced Placement courses in calculus, literature, physics, U.S. History, and Orange County Community College algebra II – all for college credit. He will be attending SUNY Polytechnic Institute this fall, majoring in mechanical engineering with a minor in applied Mathematics and playing college soccer for the Polytech Wildcats in the fall.
Wakeley is the son of Ann Marie and Wayne Banker, of Warwick. His brother, Brody, is in the eighth grade at the Warwick Middle School.
