Congratulations to Tre Ahn ’19 and Leopold Dorilas ’19 for receiving Cardigan’s Athlete of the Week Award. Read what their coaches have to say about them below, and meet all the students who were nominated.
Varsity Student-Athlete of the Week
Tre Ahn ’19 – Varsity Lacrosse
Tre has been nominated by his teammates for his continued hard work, leadership, and strong play. All season long Tre has provided good leadership to the team with his other captains. Tre shows up every day to practice and games ready to quietly give his best effort and work to improve. Last week he had a great game against Belmont Hill and scored some key goals to help lead the team to victory.
Sub-Varsity Student-Athlete of the Week
Leopold Dorilas ’19 – JV Lacrosse
Leopold has been nominated for his enthusiasm and effort at practice; for his balanced and mature guidance in the locker room and in the van, and for his outstanding effort playing midfield in the game against Dublin's Varsity. Leopold scored one of the prettiest goals we have seen this year and he generated several other quality shots. He also was a team leader scooping up ground balls and clearing the ball from defense to offense.
Other Varsity Nominations
Gianluca Audia ’19 – Varsity Tennis
The Varsity Tennis Team would like to nominate Gianluca Audia this week. This is his third year on the Varsity Tennis Team and it is amazing how much he has grown as a player, but most importantly as a person. Gianluca is a very smart player who moves very well on the court. His technique is extraordinary and he loves to compete. This last week Gianluca won his singles match in the tie break again. It was amazing to see him fight every ball so he could give one more point to the team. Coaches are very proud of you and how far have you have come.
Hugh Jung ’20 – Varsity Baseball
Hugh has done everything we have asked of him this season, and has done it with enthusiasm and a smile. In his first year of organized baseball, Hugh hits in the leadoff position in our lineup and is playing several positions. He is eager to learn at every practice and has improved dramatically due to his excellent effort.
Other Sub-Varsity Nominations
Jeffrey Song ’20 - Thirds Baseball
Jeffrey is the definition of daily hard work. Baseball does not come naturally to Jeffrey, however, he uses every drill to improve himself and is beginning to see the results of his efforts. Jeffrey had the winning hit in an intrasquad skills competition, hitting a line drive in the batting cage that scored the deciding points for his team. Everyone can learn from his example.
Caden Hutchinson ’20 – C.O.R.E.
Caden is this week's student athlete of the week for C.O.R.E. Caden took the role as our group's designated leader of activities for the second time in the team's rotation. He is also one of C.O.R.E.'s captains. Although he has a quiet presence, he still leads with conviction and confidence. He has a wonderful way of coaxing the best performance from his teammates. Keep up the good work, Caden.
Jerry Tian ’19, and Lucas Ding '20 – JV Tennis
As a dynamic doubles team, Jerry and Lucas faced deficit and near defeat throughout their match against a ferocious foe in Kimball Union Academy. Trailing 2-5, and again 3-6, and 4-7, Team Tian/Ding valiantly fought to a seemingly improbable 8-7 victory. They proceeded to eek out the rally with a hair raising 8-6 win in the tiebreaker. This victory clinched a 5-4 team win for CMS over rival KUA. Jerry and Lucas never succumbed to fatigue nor defeatism, and exemplified exactly what CMS tennis is striving to achieve.
Jerry Wang ’19 – Thirds Tennis
Jerry has been nominated for helping the team snag a fourth win this past Wednesday when he played off and won against a Tilton player who had been dropped down from their varsity team to play us. Jerry was anxious at first, but held on to a lead throughout a match that dragged on for quite a while.
Will Kainen ’19 - Rock Climbing
Will has been a solid member of the Rock Climbing Team all spring. He gets along well with his teammates and coaches, which makes him a positive force on the team. Although Will has a wonderful sense of humor, he understands how dangerous the sport can be and takes the issue of safety very seriously. In addition, Will has been climbing very well and has ticked another "Black" or most challenging problem in the cave recently. Will is a great representative of the team and worthy candidate for Student Athlete of the Week.
Luke Litowitz ’20 – Thirds Lacrosse
Luke has been selected co-captain by his peers. He works hard and encourages all. He is a great teammate on and off the field. This was illustrated at the Spring concert when Luke took the stage in support of a classmate with no advance practice. He made the entire Back 40 lacrosse program proud!
Andrew Reilly ’21 – Reserve Lacrosse
Andrew is full speed at all times, always asking questions, and helping his teammates. Against Laconia, Andrew was a wall on defense; not a single player got past him. He went coast to coast to get himself more than one assist and a shot on goal with a long pole! Andrew is a role model and leader on our team this season, and we are so proud to have him on our team!
Daniel Jung ’21 - JV Baseball
Daniel has worked incredibly hard the last few weeks at practice. Daniel shows up to practice every day with a smile on his face and he is always encouraging his teammates. His willingness to accept his coaches’ feedback has played a major role in the improvements he has made thus far. While he is not a captain on the team, Daniel leads quietly by example.
