This week, three student-athletes were honored with Athletic Accolades. Nima Olumi ’13, Niles Cohen ’16, and Irene McLaughlin-Alves ’17 received the award for their hard work and performance on the courts.
As the only returning member of this year’s ‘A’ team, Irene has taken on a leadership role on and off the court. She has guided our younger players and serves as a role model around the meaning of sportsmanship. A fierce competitor, Irene has been both an offensive and defensive threat in every game. As our leading point guard, her eyes are always surveying the court for a pass or shot. Defensively, she is not afraid to strip the ball and create fast break opportunities for the team. She is committed to improving her game and pushing herself beyond the physical limits of the game.
