Athletes of the Week

Congratulations to Alex Wang ’23 and Aidan Milone ’23 for receiving Cardigan’s Student-Athlete of the Week Awards. Read what their coaches have to say about them below, and meet all the students who were nominated. Learn more about Athletics at Cardigan Mountain School.

Varsity Student-Athlete of the Week

Alex Wang ’23 - Varsity Tennis

Alex started the season recovering from a wrist injury that prevented him from practicing, playing, and hitting the ball comfortably. Despite this, he has done an incredible job keeping things positive and coming to practice with the right mindset. He is close to getting back to his previous level, and I am certain that he will help the team these last couple of weeks. Alex is an amazing person who contributes to maintaining a positive vibe, even when the team doesn't perform well. The coaches are very proud of his progress and we feel fortunate to have him on our squad. 

Sub-Varsity Student-Athlete of the Week

Aidan Milone ’23 - JV Lacrosse 

Even though we suffered a crushing loss against Belmont Hill, Aidan was able to keep his composure and provide us with the offensive power that we surely needed.

Other Varsity Nominations 

Bode Murano ’23 - Varsity Baseball 

Bode has been working hard all year to become a better defensive first baseman. He also came through at the plate this past week with multiple hits in our games.

Maddox Linen ’23 - Varsity Lacrosse

Maddox has been playing very good on-ball defense, preventing our opponents from scoring. Each day in practice, he shows up ready to go and play hard. In our recent Belmont Hill game, he took his play to the next level; he did a great job locking down his attackman and helping others off the ball. He has done a great job on ground balls and clearing as well.

Other Sub-Varsity Nominations

Pin Hong “Javier” Yee ’25 - Reserve Lacrosse  

Javier has played two phenomenal games in net for us. He has improved his clears and is able to send the ball all the way to the half! He has been focused and hard working in practice and has been great in our games.

Clement Mikheev ’23 - CORE

Clem was a solid contributor throughout the week and set an excellent example for others. He was also a good team leader on the two hikes we did. The CORE Team volunteered to help the Set Production Club erect several walls for the spring play and he was a huge help. Keep up the good work, Clem!

Griffin McClure ’24 - Thirds Lacrosse 

Griffin has led the defense in each game and his play has been exceptional.

Henry Timbrell ’25 - Fourths Tennis  

Not only has Henry taken top spot as our number one seed player, but he has also shown incredible growth in his court IQ and focus since the start of the season. He is always willing to play with or against anyone without complaint; he is a genuine team player.

Sean Kwon ’24 - Reserve Tennis

Over the past two weeks, Sean’s commitment to the game of tennis has grown substantially, and the results are evident in his advancements in swing technique, especially the force of his forehand returns. With only two full weeks left in the season, Sean is clearly on his way to playing tennis at a higher level next year.

Jesse Whiting ’26 - Thirds Baseball

Jesse earns our Player of the Week Award for his relentless positivity and great work on the field. It’s no secret that he loves baseball statistics, and his stats are not to be missed! He has a perfect on-base percentage and has the team’s only stolen base. He also made an amazing play at third base, tagging a runner out and getting a much-needed out for his team. Jesse loves the game of baseball and continues to be a great teammate. 

Zibo “Bob” Liu ’25 - JV Tennis 

With the help of his team, Bob found great success in practice as well as in his matches this past week! His work ethic was second to none, and he did it all without a single complaint. As a matter of fact, I don’t think the word is in his vocabulary, because everything he does is with a smile. He triumphed in his two most recent matches against Holderness and Vermont Academy, and we look forward to seeing what he’ll bring to the table in our final matches against Proctor and Eaglebrook. Keep up the great work, Bob!
