UPPER SCHOOL DRAGONS OF THE WEEK
January 22, 2018
Keili Murphy is a huge spark of new life to our team! During our four-game winning streak, she has come off the bench and pushed her team to new heights. What seemed as an exhausted team towards the final holiday tournament games, Keili was able to contribute with key points, rebounds, and an overall huge team spirit. Keili is a huge inspiration to her teammates and motivates each of us daily!
The JV Basketball team can always count on Chelsie Nacelus to give 100% effort with a positive spirit and energy. As a first year player as a sophomore, Chelsie’s skills have drastically improved in just a few weeks, with each week taking on a higher level of drills. She is the most consistent in her commitment to the team and is the most vocal player defensively on the court. Ball! Ball! Ball!
This week’s Dragon of the Week for fencing is Alexandra Pereira! Alex finished the week with a few big wins under her belt, a few at the Santelli tournament on Sunday and one on Thursday against Newark Academy. Alex is always ready to fence and is always encouraging her teammates during their bouts. We look forward to a successful rest of the season for Alex!
V Ice Hockey
Senior Gabie Vicens has earned the distinction of being Varsity Ice Hockey’s Dragon of the Week. Gabie is an outstanding player on defense. She works tirelessly on the ice to control the play when the other team has the puck by maintaining good defensive positioning, shutting down their passing lane and steering the players where she wants them. At times, she will sacrifice her body to block shots. Gabie also initiates breakouts from the defensive zone, making clean outlet passes to the forwards. She has scored one goal and earned two assists since returning from winter break. Congratulations, Gabie!
Dragon of the Week for Varsity Squash goes to Sofia Scotto. Sofia's performance and leadership makes her a great example as our Captain for this year. During practice days she is always present and always improving. The leadership she brings to the team is fantastic bonus, she's always on top of the schedule and advocating for the team. Sofia showed great composure during her match vs Blair this past weekend. The match was tied 3-3; it was all up to her. With both teams watching and all the weight on her shoulders she was able to win in straight sets (11-9, 11-9,11-9). Super tough match to win as our number one player for Squash. We look forward to have Sofia winning and having a great season for 2019! Go Dragons!
Skyler Ford and Lily Pence
These two captains have demonstrated what it means to be a captain. They are great leaders of the team, fine examples of sportsmanship and always willing to jump in when needed in an event no matter how difficult. They give every race maximum effort and work well with the coaches. Congratulations Skyler and Lily!
