10/12/18 - Mitchell ‘19, Varsity Football

Therese ‘19, Girls' Varsity Volleyball

Therese has been a crucial player throughout the season. Though she normally only plays in the back court in games and at practice as a defensive specialist, she is more or less a utility player. She has been working on her hitting and blocking in practice, and it truly showed on Saturday when in a pinch, she was thrown in to play all six rotations as an outside hitter - without any extensive practice in the position. Not only did she play well defensively, she also recorded her first kill of the season. At her height, scoring at the net is difficult, but Therese took the last-minute change with grace and her usual humor and made some positive change on the court for her team. We are super proud of her!

10/18//18 - Xol ‘21, Varsity Cross Country

Xol had two amazing performances, first against Watkinson and then against Gunnery. He has shaved off 6 minutes from his 5k time at the start of the year and continues to get faster and faster. Xol pushes other runners and is a loved and valued member by all on the cross country team.

Not only did she play well defensively, she also recorded her first kill of the season. At her height, scoring at the net is difficult, but Therese took the last-minute change with grace and her usual humor and made some positive change on the court for her team.

11/16/18 - Duncan Mugford 21, Varsity Football

Duncan is an extremely hard worker on the athletic field, giving full effort regardless of position or role. This showed on Saturday whe​n​ he played the entire game at defensive tackle, after only just switching to the position this​ past​ week. Duncan made his presence on the line known immediately, and was routinely in the backfield, often disrupting plays before they could start.
