  • Luke Beckstein- Varsity Baseball

    Luke was one of the catalysts of our offense against St. Mark’s; he was our first hitter to reach base in the fourth inning via a hit by pitch, then laced an RBI single and a leadoff double in his last two at bats, coming around to score both times.  He was at the heart of an excellent defensive effort, calmly fielding a hard hit one hopper to end St. Mark’s first good scoring opportunity, then starting a double play to end their next one.  This was emblematic of his play at shortstop all season long, as he has been unfailingly reliable at one of the hardest and busiest defensive positions on the field.  Luke’s focus and hard work this season have set a great example for his teammates. -Coach DiSarcina, Coach Cheeks, & Coach Bannard

  • 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.

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
