SELF con­fessed per­fec­tion­ist, Fletcher Caponec­chia, is Myrtle­ford P-12 Col­lege’s 2018 dux.

Caponec­chia did not re­quire an ATAR score for ad­mis­sion into the Amer­i­can Col­lege Sys­tem where he will play soc­cer from Au­gust next year, but the 18-yearold is still thrilled with the re­sult.

“I guess, in the end the ATAR didn’t mean a lot to me but it was good to get some aca­demic recog­ni­tion,” he said.

“I worked pretty hard all year but at the same time there were a few scores that I wasn’t happy with which is prob­a­bly me be­ing a per­fec­tion­ist.

“I knew what was at stake re­ally.”

Caponec­chia is still un­de­cided what course he will un­der­take in the United States with a range of fac­tors still up in the air.

“It all de­pends on the col­lege,” he said.

“I still haven’t made a de­ci­sion where I will go but there are some of­fers there from some good schools.

“I did not ac­tu­ally take bi­ol­ogy (in year 12) but I would like to maybe go down that path.”

An­other op­tion for Caponec­chia could be some­thing English based, af­ter the manda­tory sub­ject turned out his best.

“That hon­estly sur­prised me, even walk­ing out of the (English) exam I thought I did okay but not as well as I did,” Caponec­chia said.

As for be­ing the dux, the tal­ented all-rounder was un­aware un­til re­ceiv­ing a call from his mother, Danielle, who works at the school.

“The plan now is to work un­til Au­gust and get some money up be­fore I head to col­lege,” he said.

“I am happy to be in the po­si­tion I am at the mo­ment.”

HAPPY DAYS: Myrtle­ford P-12 Col­lege’s Fletcher Caponec­chia was de­lighted with his ATAR score.
