Rams of the Week: April 17-23, 2017

Mary DeLan '19 (Fleetwood, Pa.) JV Girls’ Lacrosse
Mary comes to practice every day with a smile on her face and a positive attitude. Mary does everything that is asked of her with 100% commitment and effort. In our game against Hun, Mary was a defensive leader and, when given the opportunity, she was not afraid to make a drive to goal.

Laura Garvey '17 (Niskayuna, NY) Crew
Laura has been a leader on and off the water in her second year as team captain. Laura took 8 seconds off her time to pull a personal best of 8:17.9 on her timed 2,000 m erg test. She then continued to race in both the Girls Varsity 4+ and the Girls Varsity 8+ at the highly competitive Mercer Sprints. With Laura's hard work and leadership, the GV8+ was able to qualify for the Petite Finals the following after placing fifth in their 5th, and finished the weekend 10th overall against some very talented crews. Laura continues to be a model of determination and support for her fellow teammates.

Jacob Kretzing '19 (Oley, Pa.) JV Baseball
Both offensively and defensively, Jacob has been a significant part of the JV team's early season successes. Jacob is currently hitting .700 with seven hits in three games including two doubles and a triple. In addition, he has scored six runs. He is a utility player who has played both in the infield and the outfield this spring. Last week he made a diving catch in the last inning versus Princeton Day to preserve the win. Finally, Jacob's positive attitude and serious commitment have set a good example for his teammates.

JP Irizarry '19 (Yardley, Pa.) & Yash Singh '18 (Moorestown, NJ) Varsity Boys’ Golf
JP Irizarry and Yash Singh had their best rounds ever while playing in a varsity match. Their consistent play helped the team beat Gilman for the first time in 4 years.

Michael Stevens '20 (Bristol, Pa.) Crew
Michael stood out for guts, technical mastery very early in his career, and most importantly good judgment. As of the racing, Michael had been in the coxswain seat in practice exactly twice, and the first time just barely. That practice started with the coaches’ launch engine failing, and Michael had to learn to steer and control a very rambunctious group of eight almost equally-green novices in a 60+ foot shell for a good fifteen minutes on a moving river by himself. In our marathon pre-race practice Friday he showed the independent stripes that are the hallmark of coxes with a future in the sport—quick on the uptake with information, and quick to move practice along. He raced twice on Saturday at one of the fastest regattas in the country, steering, motivating, and instructing intelligently all the way. His crew caught a boat-stopping crab at the start that resulted in some novice chaos and poor language that caught the attention of the race-marshal. After some discussion about this at the boat meeting, Michael proposed that the crew apologize to the race marshals. He led the entire group to the office where we happened to find the regatta director and he explained to her both what had happened and how the team had come to understand that they had to do the right thing by apologizing directly to the regatta. This past weekend, Michael Stevens showed guts on the water and sportsmanship off well-above his years and earned the respect of his coaches, captains, and teammates. There’s no higher calling in athletics.
