Rams of the Week: February 6-12, 2017

Calla Booth-Genthe '19 (Pottstown, Pa.) Diving
Beginning the final weeks of practice leading up to Easterns Championships, Calla has had her foot on the gas! She placed the highest of our female divers at the annual MAPL invitational (3rd overall) and competed a brand new dive in the meet with little practice. Since the invite, Calla has continued to ramp up her dive list in preparation for the season’s culminating event: Easterns! We are excited to see what this newcomer will do!

Bruna Guedes '18 (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) Girls’ Swimming
Bruna has had a tough season returning to swimming after a year and a half off due to injury. She has battled her way back and was able to qualify for Easterns by three one-hundredths of a second in the 100 Backstroke at MAPLs.

Maia Lockhart '18 (Bethlehem, Pa.) Varsity Girls’ Basketball
Maia led the Hill Girls Basketball team to the MAPL Championship. She scored the go ahead basket in the final minute against Peddie in the MAPL semifinals to put the Rams up by one. Maia then hit two clutch free throws with under ten seconds left to seal the victory. Maia finished the game with 12 points, going a perfect 4 for 4 from the free throw line. Maia continued to be a strong leader for her teammates during the MAPL Championship. She has embraced her role within the team and has fit in seamlessly. We are so happy that Maia decided to join the Hill Community this year! Keep up the great work.

Ally Maner '17 (Villanova, Pa.) Varsity Girls’ Squash
Senior captain and four-year Varsity member, Ally Maner went out with a bang at her last showing at the US Squash High School Team Nationals Tournament in Connecticut last weekend. Playing number one on the squash ladder is a challenging position, and Ally faced her competition with determination and poise in all three of her matches. After losing her match in the first round against a strong BB&N opponent, Ally fought back on Friday night to beat Friends Central in a close 3-1 match, earning herself MVP for the evening. As Ally stepped onto the court on Saturday afternoon, our team was in a 2-2 tie against New Haven JV, with three more matches to go. Ally played a face-paced match, ultimately winning 3-1, in hopes of helping her team carry on to the consolation finals match on Sunday. While our team fell short in the end, Ally’s efforts to help support and encourage her teammates all weekend have not gone unnoticed. I hope that she can carry this energy into the MAPL tournament this coming weekend.

Alfonso Mestre '19 (Dorado, Puerto Rico) Boys’ Swimming
Alfonso has been a quiet, determined worker in the pool all season working hard on adjusting to the standard US 25-yard pools versus the 50-meter pools he’s used to swimming in. He easily won the 500 Freestyle at MAPLS, but he had a real race for third in the 200 Freestyle out-touching his opponent by one-tenth of second to earn his best time of the season.

Tori Moran '19 (Pottstown, Pa.) JV Girls’ Basketball
Tori energized our practices throughout the winter and led the way with her excellent effort in drills and sprints. She has improved tremendously and was a strong post presence for us in the final game of the season against Blair. In the second half of this game, Tori suffered a significant injury to her shoulder. Despite being in a sling and a lot of pain, Tori chose to join her team on the bench and cheered her teammates to a victory against a team that beat us earlier in the year. This moment of dedication to her peers reflects the positive attitude she has displayed from the first day of the season.

Charlie Savage '20 (New York, NY) JV Boys’ Ice Hockey
Charlie nearly missed Saturday’s game against rival Lawrenceville, but the team was glad that he managed to get going. His line played great defense and drove the possession game for the team. Charlie played a big part in all four goals of the tie game, including scoring one and assisting two. He had a great season for the team and capped it off nicely on Saturday.
