SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - For the first time in the history of the Hollis Stacy Award, two student-athletes will share the award.

Calvary’s Basia Peragine and St. Vincent’s Elizabeth Winders are this year’s winners of the award, given to the most versatile female athlete in Savannah.

Peragine led the Cavaliers volleball team to four straight state championships, where Calvary won three state titles in row. She was also a member of the school’s track and field and swim teams.

Peragine, who will attend Stonehill College in Easton, MA to play volleyball, earned the Lawton Calhoun Award from the Greater Savannah Athletic Hall of Fame as the best high school athlete in Savannah last week.

Winders will also be able to claim herself as a Hollis Stacy winner.

The St. Vincent’s standout earned All-State honors in cross-country and was a team captain for the Saints’ cross country, track, and swim teams. Winders has also been a part of the school’s back-to-back state title wins.

Both Peragine and Winders will soon get formal ceremonies to celebrate the accomplishment next week at their respective schools.
