The Section V Girls Soccer Tournament begins Tuesday night, and this week's scholar athlete knows a thing or two about success during sectionals.

When the game is on the line, there's almost no better person in Section V to make a play than Fairport's Ally Donovan.

The leader in assists in girls soccer over the past two seasons also scored the game winning goal in the sectional final last year.

"It was probably one of the best feelings ever, that was my 3rd year on the team and the past years we came up short, to be able to put it away was such a great feeling," Donovan said. 

Ally will continue her great soccer career in college, she'll play at SUNY New Paltz next year.

"When I was there the team seemed really close, good team chemistry, they played the same way we do, attacking wise, it was a great fit," explained Donovan.

When she's not playing soccer in college she plans to study education in hopes of becoming a grade school teacher.

"When you're teaching them to read and write, some skills they can use in everyday life," said Donovan. "And it sets them up for their whole future with basic learning skills"

Congratulations Ally Donovan, the News10NBC Scholar Athlete of the Week, presented by Nixon Peabody and the Ide Family of Dealerships.
