2019-20 RILL Student-Athlete of the Month

Every member school is encouraged to nominate a deserving male and female student-athlete each month. The goal of this program is to recognize the outstanding efforts of student-athletes in Rhode Island high school athletic programs who: 

  • Excel in the classroom
  • Excel during competition
  • Participate in multiple school sponsored sports
  • Demonstrate good citizenship in their school and community

The Rhode Island Interscholastic League congratulates the RIIL Student-Athlete of the Month winners for November:
Rocco Cillino, Westerly High School: “Rocco is a true student ambassador,” says Westerly athletic director Jamey Vetelino. “He is in all Advanced Placement courses and was carrying a 3.7 GPA (as of the first quarter). He is captain of the football team and leads by his example. Younger kids look up to him and fellow seniors rely on him both on the field and off to say and do the right things. In the Thanksgiving Day game, he scored 3 touchdowns, had an interception and won the game’s MVP Award, the Offensive Player of the Game award and was also given the Washington Trust Leadership Award, annually given to the player who most exemplifies the true spirit of being a team leader. Rocco is a regular supporter at other athletic events and is a leader in the Schools Character committee.”

Marianna May, Rogers High School: “Marianna has been an All-Division member of our championship volleyball team,” says Rogers athletic director Jim Cawley. “She challenges herself off the court as much as she does on. She is a talented musician and a member of Rogers Orchestra. She is also a talented artist, representing Rogers in local art showings and contests. Academically, Marianna is an Honor Roll student carrying a course load of AP and Honors classes. Marianna has represented Rogers in swimming for two years and this year is making the switch to indoor track. In the spring Marianna is a member of our sailing team.
