Rosemont High School star athlete Irene Colaivalu (Class of 2016) signed today with Colorado State University, where she will play basketball next year on a full four-year scholarship.

“She’s super athletic and funny, too,” said Assistant Principal Steve Jones. “All of us on the Rosemont staff are extremely proud of her accomplishments.”

Colaivalu, whose parents immigrated to the US from Fiji, has played on the varsity team since she was freshman. Last year, when the school’s softball team was in danger of forfeiting games because it needed one more player, Colaivalu pitched in to take a position even it wasn’t her sport, Jones said.

“She wants to help out wherever she can,” he said. “She’s the ultimate team player.”
