Dalia Suslovich of Lincoln High School and Anuoluwapo "Clinton" Ogunronbi of East Providence High School have been named winners of the Showcase Cinemas Athlete of the Month for February 2019.
Dalia is a two-sport athlete at Lincoln High School. She plays a crucial role on the Lions’ girls basketball team and also serves as captain on the boys tennis team. This season she is averaging 10 points per game, recording 14 three-pointers, and grabbing 90 rebounds. Off the court, Dalia holds a 3.9 GPA and is ranked 11th in her class. She is the Treasurer and Member of the National Honor Society, Member of the Ski and Snowboard Club, and also helps teach the game of basketball to the youth of Lincoln with the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department. Dalia leads by example both on and off the court, encourages and motivates teammates to work hard and give it all they have.
Ranked in the top 20 nationally, Anuoluwapo successfully defended his individual title in the long jump at the R.I. State Indoor Track & Field Championship and also won the event at the Metropolitan Division Championship and the Class A Championship, qualifying to compete at the New Balance Indoor Track & Field Championship in New York City. While competing at a high level, he has demonstrated strong leadership qualities as one of Bob Lyons’ captains. In this role, Anuoluwapo has helped spearhead team community service projects including toy drives and visits to area nursing homes. He has also helped youth in the East Providence community by mentoring aspiring track & field athletes at both the youth and middle school levels. In the classroom, Anuoluwapo takes his studies very seriously and has worked hard to put himself in position to fulfill his dream and be accepted at the college of his choice. What impresses Anuoluwapo’s coach most about his success in track & field is that “he has thrived and accomplished so much while maintaining a full work load, working many hours at a local business in order to save for college while also keeping up with his studies.”
