Caroline Senior Athletes Playing at the Next Level

The Caroline High School Athletic Department would like to recognize the following student-athletes on their accomplished high school careers.  These students have worked extremely hard on the field and in the classroom.  We congratulate you and your child on their athletic accomplishments over the past four years.  We wish them well in the future!

Alyssa Blevins:

Alyssa will be attending Tiffin University to compete on the track & field team.  She also considered Indiana Tech and Alderson Broaddus.  Alyssa fell in love with the school and location.  The coaches and team atmosphere seem great.  Tiffin has a very successful track program and the moderate class sizes fit her as a student.  Achievements include: 3rd in 21 & under for Charleston Marathon, 1st in 18 & under for Jackson River Half marathon, 4th in 21 & under for Richmond Marathon, 1st in 21 & under for Chessie Trail Marathon.  She also received the Scholars award for academics.  Alyssa is a member of the National Honor Society and has worked community service projects for the YMCA.

Lucas Chinault:

Lucas is heading to Mary Baldwin University where he will be competing on the baseball team.  He chose MBU over Mary Washington and Bridgewater College.  Mary Baldwin provided him the best financial package, and he likes the size of both the campus and classes.  An outstanding student, Lucas has a 4.0 GPA.  He has received an academic award all four years at Caroline and is a member of the National Honor Society.

Tyrell Patterson:

Tyrell will be heading to Chowan University in the fall to continue his football career.  He has been a valuable contributor as a defensive back, primarily playing cornerback.  Tyrell also considered Lackawanna Community College and Webber International before deciding to become a CU Hawk.  At Chowan, Tyrell will major in Exercise Science.  Tyrell has also been involved in other various roles as a Cavalier, including being a leader in the Impact Club and a participant in the CHS Black History Month Program.

Sivon Pleasants:

Sivon will attend Norfolk State University as a member of the football team.    “The coach gave me an opportunity and the visit gave me a home.”  Sivon also considered Bowie State, Virginia Union, and Morgan State.  Last season, Sivon was named All-Region 4B 2nd team as an all-purpose player after starring at CHS at running back, QB, and WR.  He also received All-Area Honorable Mention from the Free-Lance Star.  Sivon carries a 3.0 GPA and was named Caroline Student of the Month for October.  He is involved with Praise Dance and Junior Missionary.  Sivon was recruited as an “athlete” and could play on either side of the ball.

Toby Somers:

Toby will be playing baseball at Virginia Wesleyan University.  He chose to play there because the coach made him feel valued by their baseball program.  The school felt like the right size and is known for their athletics and academics.  He was accepted into 7 colleges (JMU, Radford, R-MC, Mary Baldwin, Coastal Carolina, VWU, Emory and Henry) before deciding on VWU.  Toby plans on majoring in International Studies with a minor in Criminal Justice. He is the recipient of a 3-Year ROTC Scholarship from the Army, paying full tuition with a monthly stipend.  Following his career at VWU, Toby will have to commission as an Officer for 8 years in the Army.
