Three More Athletic Accolade Recipients Announced

Alex Jacobs ’11 (varsity golf), Nora Demick ’12 (varsity field hockey), and Hayley Zukerberg ’16 (girls’ MS A soccer) are the latest recipients of Athletic Accolades, an award that acknowledges student-athletes who have made important contributions to their teams through quality of play, leadership, and sportsmanship.

“Alex Jacobs is a captain and the best golfer on the team,” says coach Larry McKinney. “He always competes against the top golfers in the league, and in his last four matches, he has two wins, one loss, and one tie. He also has posted six rounds of 43 or better so far this season.”

“Many people do not realize the amount of pressure goalies face and Nora Demick, a returning player, has stayed cool under fire and continues to perform as the varsity field hockey goal keeper,” raves coach Ashley Rohn. “Nora is always on time to practice, ready to work hard, and is often one of the most well-conditioned players on the team, hustling during sprinting and running drills! On average Nora records 20 saves per game and she notched her first shut out of the season at Saturday’s homecoming win against Concord Academy. As coaches, it is a huge reward to have other coaches and referees often comment on her aerial saves, huge clears, and ability to keep her head up if scored upon. Nora is a silent leader with an incredibly positive attitude and we anticipate she will continue to make huge contributions to Beaver field hockey!”
