Connecticut track star, Hannah DeBalsi, was the December recipient of the Student Athlete of the Month award, sponsored by Sports Illustrated. Each month, the publication honors students making a positive impact in their community and respective sports.

This month, Assignment Desk crews led by DP, Christian Chapman traveled to Hannah's hometown of Westport, CT to capture footage from the senior's special award ceremony.

Former Olympic runner, Donn Cabral, Sports Illustrated staff and the U.S. Marine Corps were in attendance to present Hannah with her award. 

To film Hannah's award ceremony, we used a Sony FS700 camera with a Rokinon 50mm cine prime lens, a Sound Devices 722 audio recorder, and a shure liv microphone in order to maintain quality sound even with the large crowd. 

Congratulations, Hannah! Assignment Desk loves celebrating exceptional student athletes.
