Dragons of the Week for February 25, 2019

UPPER SCHOOL DRAGONS OF THE WEEK
February 25, 2019

V Basketball
Nia Williams
Nia Williams is KPS Varsity Basketball Dragon of the Week. She has been a spark on offense for the Dragons as she nailed big shot after big shot leading into a historic run in the County Tournament Game. She hit a huge three pointer, which sent Oak Knoll home, packing last Friday from the UCC Tournament game. Nia has risen to the challenge game after game and has not folded. As one of our two freshmen on the squad this year she has held her own against some tough opponents. We're excited to see Nia's development from day one of our season to now. She's part of a growing program and has found her place!

V Ice Hockey
Caroline Lubow and Katie Lubow
The Varsity Ice Hockey Dragons of the Week are senior Caroline Lubow and sophomore Katie Lubow. As a tri-captain, Caroline served a huge role off-ice by facilitating much of the team communication which kept us organized, prepared, and motivated. She also did well psyching up the team with pre-game music. Caroline and Katie, the sister act, skated as one line of our defensive pairs. They effectively defended the blue line, handled the puck well in the neutral zone, and took shots on goal. Initiating breakouts from the defensive zone, they either made clean outlet passes to the forwards or skated it down into the corners. Lastly, they protected the front of the net well, keeping the pressure on the opponents and tying up their sticks. Congratulations, Caroline and Katie!
 

V Winter Track
Kaira Brown
Dragon of the Week for track is Kaira Brown. Kaira has shown continuous leadership over the course of the season, making every effort to take care of the younger runners, especially when they all share the same events. She keeps track of their times, makes sure they are checked in, and seemingly juggles this with being the fastest quarter-miler in New Jersey. Thanks for being a good teammate, Kaira, and congratulations!
