Carpenter, DeJarnette named top scholar-athletes

Richmond, Virginia. June 9, 2009. By Arthur Utley. “Kristin Carpenter and Ben DeJarnette are used to being in the spotlight. They have been there since entering high school four years: Carpenter at Hanover High and DeJarnette at neighboring Atlee. Carpenter plays national-team caliber volleyball. DeJarnette excels in cross country and the distance races (1,600 and 3,200) in indoor and outdoor track. Even with all their success athletically and in the classroom, they continue to be gracious and humble.” More from
