Christine Schmitt is one of the most successful high school athletes in Rochester. The Our Lady of Mercy senior is also one of Rochester's most successful students. Christine's drive for greatness is what makes her News10NBC's Scholar Athletes of the Week.

The piano is an instrument Christine Schmitt has played since she was four-years-old. Her drive sounds pretty good too as do her academics.

A senior at Our Lady of Mercy, Christine has a 97 average. She has made the honor roll every single academic quarter and she is a math and science whiz. 

The reigning New York State Golf champion and three-time Section V champ, Christine never wants to become satisfied with her score card. Christine also uses golf as a form of networking to further her life outside of the game.

Christine is still narrowing down her college selections. She would like to study chemistry in college. 

News10NBC's Scholar Athlete of the Week is sponsored by Wendy's Restaurants and MCC.
