Seniors Colin Read (boys’ varsity tennis) and Phoebe Allen (girls’ varsity lacrosse) and eighth grader Jamie Kennedy (MS baseball) earned the spring season’s first Athletic Accolades.
“We are excited about the success that our teams are having this early in the spring season,” said Sherry Levin, Director of Athletics. “The weather always poses a challenge initially, but the student-athletes have performed admirably. We have high expectations to continue improving and finding our stride this season.”
“Senior Captain Colin Read has helped lead the boys’ tennis team to a 3-0 start with very strong play in both singles and doubles,” says coach Pauri Pandian. “Read has set a great example in both practices and matches with his intensity and effort, and has been a vocal, supportive teammate throughout the beginning of the season.”
“Phoebe Allen is deserving of this award both for her leadership and athleticism,” says coach Liz Skinner. “She is the player who truly gives 100 percent at every game until the final whistle. Her hustle allows her to win the majority of the 50/50 balls she goes after, thereby causing a positive turnover that allows our team to score. Phoebe sets an example for the rest of her teammates through her desire to be the absolute best that she can be, and everyone is a better player because of it.”
“At the plate, Jamie Kennedy has scored 4 runs in two games and only been retired once,” raves coach Jon Greenberg. “As a pitcher, every out he has recorded over two games has been by strikeout (15 out of 15). Jamie has allowed zero runs, zero hits and two base runners (one by walk, one by error) in those two games.”
