Rogike Thorpe – Being a Vincentian Athlete
SEARCHLIGHT is pleased to present this short film on Rogike Thorpe, a Vincentian student athlete currently studying and training at the Kingsborough Community College (KCC) of City University of New York.
Rogike, a past student of the Thomas Saunders Secondary School enrolled at the Brooklyn-based educational institution in September 2016, and early last year, KCC’s director of Athletics Damani Thomas said “Thorpe has come a long way after sitting out his first year due to a major groin injury we discovered upon arrival. He is beginning to regain confidence now that it is healed. Head coach Dave Loobie and myself expect big things from him going into our championship portion of the season.”
This is the third of four short films in the series ‘Being a Vincentian Athlete’ produced and directed by filmmaker Aiko Maya Roudette which we at SEARCHLIGHT present as part of the nation’s celebration of our 39th anniversary of Independence.
