NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Briana Bartels, a tournament tennis player at 10 years old, is proof that elementary school students can devote time to their passions and be top academic performers. The Trinity Elementary School fifth-grader is as well known in her school for being an excellent student as she is for returning volleys on the court.

"That leadership she shows on the court, she also shows in the classroom," said Trinity Principal Anthony DiCarlo. "Teachers love having her in class."
