Congratulations to this week’s Doors of the Week!
Girls JV Tennis: Chloe Acquavella ’25 and Alix Smith ’25
Chloe Acquavella and Alix Smith garnered the JV girls tennis team’s most definitive victories against both Bement and Choate this past week. Their teamwork, enthusiasm, and dynamism have been propulsive in our practices and competitions, and they are poised to end the season with two more great matches against Longmeadow and Andover!
Varsity Baseball: Wade Hartrick ’25
Varsity baseball is excited to select Wade Hartrick as our DOTW. Wade played solid defensively Saturday’s losses at Andover. Wade is a dedicated player with a high baseball IQ. He has provided depth this spring with his ability to play multiple positions including: 3rd base, 2nd base, catcher, and pitcher. We are expecting big things from Wade down the stretch this spring and in the next three years. Keep up the great work!
Girls Varsity Water Polo: Isabela Gomez ’25, Kevin Gonzalez ’24, Vivian Gonzalez, ’25, Ishaan Myrie ’25, Koai Solano Ortiz, ’24, Matt Stultz, ’25, Melanie Sabino ’25 and Genesis Gill ’25
The girls’ polo team salutes all the students in the instructional swimming program who, thanks to their supportive teachers, learned to swim this spring. With the team cheering alongside the pool on the final day, the following students passed the academy’s swim test and can now enjoy a lifetime of aquatic fun: Isabela Gomez ’25, Kevin Gonzalez ’24, Vivian Gonzalez, ’25, Ishaan Myrie ’25, Koai Solano Ortiz, ’24, and Matt Stultz, ’25. Melanie Sabino ’25 and Genesis Gill ’25, though prepared to pass the test, were unable to participate on Tuesday. Congrats to all!
Boys Varsity Track & Field: Thomas Lu ‘23
Thomas Lu is this week’s Track & Field Door of the Week. Having heard that Track would like to develop more hurdlers, Thomas switched to Track & Field midseason and learned how to run both the high and the low hurdles. This weekend, he was Deerfield’s second finisher in both the 110 Hurdles and the 300 Hurdles, and for his learning and his efforts he has earned a spot on the team’s New England Championships roster. Thomas has worked hard in practice each day, and his work can stand as an example to future prospective hurdlers on the team.
Ultimate: Toler Poole ’24 and Sammy Sullivan ’25
The Ultimate Doors of the Week are Toler Poole ’24 and Sammy Sullivan ’25. Both athletes had a great showing this past Saturday at New Englands, and both have had an increasingly positive impact on team dynamics. At New Englands, Toler stood out for his confident mid-field catches and throws to move the disk quickly up the field. Sammy kept his cool offensively in the end zone, stepping into just the right position to complete seven awesome goals. We are thrilled to have these athletes make such a difference to our team so early on in their Deerfield careers, and we look forward to their continued leadership in years to come.
Girls Varsity Lacrosse: Grace Honos ‘22
Grace Honos is the girls varsity lacrosse door of the week. Grace has led our team through a tremendous example of hustle and a positive attitude over the course of the season. She has played a critical role in our attacking unit and has helped him old or younger players to significant contributors.
Theatre: Lottie Levine ’25
Lottie has been a superstar during this production, always ready to go, always lending a hand, and always doing exactly what needs to be done. Lottie acts every moment onstage and uplifts the work of the whole ensemble with energy and enthusiasm. We can’t wait for you to see Lottie’s wonderful work next week!
