As a three-season captain at NAHS, Isabelle Renzi is preparing for a full year of leading her teammates and driving them towards success.

Isabelle Renzi is the captain of Cross Country, Indoor Track, and Spring Track at NAHS. Isabelle is currently in her 4th season of Cross Country and has been successful ever since she started.

As captain this year, Isabelle has looked at the potential of the girls’ team. “I am very excited to see how the Girls’ Cross Country team is looking this season.”

In addition to Cross Country and Track, Isabelle is involved in Student Council, serves as the  secretary of SADD, is an active member of Leo Club, and acts as one of two student representatives on the School Council. Isabelle is also a Project Unite core leader, which means that she helps to organize the annual Special Olympics in May. In the summer, Isabelle is a Parks and Recreation camp counselor, and typically works about 20 hours a week.

While these activities certainly take up a large part of her time, Isabelle insists that she enjoys staying busy and being involved. “I love challenging myself to balance all of these activities and being involved in everything.”

Even in her downtime, Isabelle stays close to NAHS. She says that she enjoys hanging out with friends and watching her favorite show on Netflix, “One Tree Hill,” because “it reminds me so much of our high school.” She also enjoys attending the NAHS football games on Friday nights with her friends and watching the team play.

Although Isabelle is staying close to North Attleboro during her senior year, she has begun to plan for her future. She has already started going on college tours and wants to continue to run track in college. Right now, Isabelle’s sights are set on Bryant University. This is not only because of their good reputation as a business school, but the fact that their track team is Division 1.

No matter what the future brings, Isabelle is staying grounded and insists that her main focus is to fully experience her senior year. “I hope to maintain good grades this year as well as enjoy it,” she said.
