Ridgefield’s Barlow First Winner Of Tutoring Club’s New Student-Athlete Award

Ridgefield's Kathryn Barlow is the first winner of The Tutoring Club's Student-Athlete of the Month award.

Ridgefield’s Kathryn Barlow is the first winner of The Tutoring Club’s Student-Athlete of the Month award.

In the first of several new awards to recognize the accomplishments of FCIAC athletes for their achievements off the playing fields, Tutoring Club is announcing a new monthly prize, the Student-Athlete of the Month.

And the first winner is Kathryn Barlow, a junior on the Ridgefield girls soccer team.

Tutoring Club and The Ruden Report hoped for the winner to receive free tutoring, however the prize is a violation of CIAC rules. Tutoring Club has chosen to award each winner two books on how to successfully navigate the college admission process and a Ruden Report hat.


Barlow has been one of the Tigers’ standout defenders for three years, and helped the defending FCIAC champions finish the regular season with a 14-2 record and as the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament. They defeated Trumbull on Friday to reach the semifinals.

Barlow has a 3.8 grade point average, with primary interests in English and history. Barlow has won several regional student leadership awards and been involved volunteering in the National Charity League and Safe Rides of Ridgefield.

Tutoring Club, with locations in Stamford and Ridgefield, will honor an FCIAC student for excellence in the classroom and on the field each month based on nominations from league coaches. Locally owned and operated for 12 years, Tutoring Club has helped over 3,200 students throughout the community succeed in ways they never knew possible. Visit for more information.
