SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - For the second-straight year, Veronica Sierzant of Islands High School has won the Hollis Stacy Award.

The award has been given to the most versatile female athlete in Savannah for the last 30 years. The award, started in 1993 by Savannah CPA Gary Moses, is named after Hollis Stacy, a World Golf Hall of Fame inductee and one of Savannah’s most famous female athletes. Judges are public and private school athletic directors and the media members.

Last year, Sierzant was the first sophomore to win the award.

She plays four sports for the Sharks - volleyball, basketball, soccer and track-- all while carrying a 4.0 GPA.

On the volleyball court, the 6-3 star had 403 kills and 44 aces as she helped lead the team to the region title, and GHSA Class 4A Final Four.

On the basketball court, the Sharks junior averaged 22 points per game, 18 rebounds per game, and 4 blocks per game. In the 2021-22 season, she had one triple-double, and 22 double-doubles out of 23 games.

On the soccer field, Sierzant is the starting defensive back on a team that made the Sweet 16. She has also qualified for the state track meet in the 4x800 meter relay and the triple jump.

She’s just the 5th athlete to win the award twice (the first since 2017) and, if she wins as a senior, would be the only 3-time winner.

She will receive her award Monday at 1:30 p.m. in the Islands High School gym lobby, and the public is invited. Johnson senior Amani Hamilton, who plays basketball, volleyball and runs track and field, finished second in the voting for 2022.
