Chiara has been a consistently tough defender this week, and this season. She comes to every game focused and serious and works so hard with excellent results. She plays a tough deep defense position that requires quick judgement and action and she does not let the team down. Chiara outworked her opponents thus contributing to the team's success and inspiring her teammates. -Coach Kandel & Coach Dumont
Congratulations to Brent Gorton/BVLAX/VIth form
VIth former Brent Gorton's stat line may not turn heads, but all he has done this season is give 100% effort every time he sets foot on the field for us. He quietly defends some of our opponents' top offensive midfielders and anchors our man-down defensive unit, resulting in an overall paltry 3 goals against average. Unconcerned with limelight or accolades, the throwback three-sport athlete possesses a cyborg-like, relentless workrate and raises the level of his teammates on a daily basis, whether in fitness training, in practice, or in games.
Lidia Spada '22/Girls JV Hockey
Lidia has been working hard all season. She started with very little skating background, and she's made tremendous progress. Lidia's spatial awareness has translated nicely from the soccer field, and her skills are catching up with her ability to think the game. With her willingness to work hard and to laugh at herself when she tries something and it doesn't go right, Lidia's attitude has helped everyone strike the right balance between fun and pushing past the comfortable. Lidia earned a nice reward on Saturday, scoring her first goal of the season at Holderness. It was also our first goal of the game, tying the score at 1 and providing a mental boost to the team, since we've had difficulty scoring the last few games.—Coach White & Coach Low
Tyler Bowden '23 & Mike Pelletier '23/Boys JV Hockey
The boys JV Puck two headed goalie tandem of Tyler Bowden and Mike Pelletier (AKA Tyke Pelleden) backstopped Puck to two victories. Both players were at the their best in a thrilling 6-4 victory over Brooks and they shared a 4-0 shutout win over Cushing. In the Brooks game, Tyler saved the Pucksters from the early onslaught until his team got its motor running and Mike slammed the door at the end with Puck under siege.—Coach Sheedy & Coach Brooks
