Wildcat of the Week
The Wildcat of the Week for Monday, April 24, 2017 is Danielle R. '20 of the Junior Varsity Lacrosse Team. She is a freshman starter and a talented center and wing player for the team. Danielle is a devoted lacrosse player who works to improve her own play and grow the skills of the entire team. In the game against Miss Hall’s, Danielle played an excellent game at the center position. She made sure to hustle on our transition from offense to defense and force turnovers in our favor. Danielle also took the initiative to settle the ball in our offensive end in order to create some shot opportunities. Beyond just game day play, Danielle works hard and concentrates at every single practice.
At the Winter Sports Awards held on March 1, each team was recognized and the girls were awarded their letters, pins, and certificates.
