Soccer Superstar Halima in Sports Illustrated



Take a bow, student-athlete Halima M., who is featured in the Dec. 10, 2012 issue of Sports Illustrated. Halima is in the weekly feature, “Faces in the Crowd,” which highlights high school athletes across the country. Editor Alexandra Fenwick writes, “Halima, an eighth grade striker on the Brooklyn Friends School varsity team, scored a championship-game-record six goals in an 8-1 win over Birch Wathen Lenox School for the programs first Independent School Athletic League title.  She led in the regular-season goals citywide with 34, and was named the Panthers’ player of the year.  Halima, who also competes with the Brooklyn Patriots Lioness club team, was selected for last year’s state Olympian development program.”
