Our second athlete of the week went to Adam Drohan. Note from the coach: This past spring and summer Adam has made a real commitment to improve his golf game. This season he is currently our top ranked player. He is playing against the number 1 players from the other schools in our league. Adam has done an amazing job of playing under pressure against several competitors who were state qualifiers. We are impressed with his work ethic on the golf course.
Last week's Athlete of the Week went to Grace Flanagan! Note from the coach: Grace is a 4 year varsity player. During her years on varsity, Grace has played outside hitter and setter. Grace is a true leader on the court, and always makes time to help her teammates become better players. During our season, Grace has shown extraordinary sportsmanship and athleticism.

Our second Athlete of the Week goes to Mia Gangemi! Keep it up Mia! Note from the coaches: Mia is a fifth year starting varsity defender. She is a force to be reckoned with in the backfield. Not only does she communicate well with the goalie and other defenders to help control the defensive play, but she does it in such a cool and composed manner that the team breaths easier when she is there to make the play! Mia easily thwarts the opposing teams' efforts to score; stopping their advances and carrying or passing the ball to safety away from the goal and up the field to a fellow player. We also rely heavily on Mia on corners, both defensively and offensively. I don't think we have ever counted the number of saves Mia has had in the goal over the past years, but it's definitely 20+! On offensive corners, she inserts the ball accurately to players and then takes her place near the post to use her finesse skills to finish the shot and score!
Every week we will ask two teams' coaches to nominate an outstanding athlete. This week's Athlete of the Week goes to Quinn Tanner. Way to go Quinn! Note from the coaches: Quinn is a leader on and off the field. He has a great soccer IQ and is one of the hardest workers. Quinn is an overall pleasure to coach and have on the team.
