Local athlete honored at college level


Bella D’Errico, who hails from Ponte Vedra Beach and attended PVHS, was awarded the Femina Perfecta award by her softball team this year at the Champions Beyond the Game Ceremony at Florida State University. 

The Femina Perfecta award, meaning “complete woman,” is given to a member of each of the eleven teams. The recipient of the award exemplifies the motto of the Florida State University seal, which has three torches and the words “VIRES, ARTES, and MORES.” This represented the goal of the college. The recipient will not necessarily be the most intellectual, fastest, strongest or top scorer — but should be the one who is invaluable to the team and will always make a difference.
