Congratulations this week’s Doors of the Week! Learn more about each of this week’s Doors of the Week and the contributions that they made to their respective teams and co-curriculars.
Boys JV Soccer: Walter Burkley ’24
Walter played huge in our first play day at Loomis. He played on the attacking wing, wing back, and finished at center back with huge hustle when our team was largely gassed. He was balanced in his aggressive dispossession of our opponents and then swiftly delivered the ball to an attacking player. Without his effort at the end of our third match, we likely would have given up several goals. He gave the team a big boost and led us with an example of hard work, toughness, balanced defense, and moving the ball well.
Varsity Field Hockey: Lauren Smith ’24 and Fev Barinova ‘24
Lauren Smith (’24) and Fev Barinova (’24) are the varsity field hockey Doors of the Week. Lauren and Fev are our goalies and have worked hard in every practice to compete and challenge their teammates. They are supportive of one another and have come up with some huge saves in practices and our playday. We are excited about their leadership in net throughout the season and are grateful for their work ethics and positive attitudes!
Football: William Wright ’25
The Door of the Week for the first football scrimmage is William Wright who returned an interception 55 yards for a touchdown and the first score of the season in our scrimmage against Taft on Saturday. He is a young player to watch this season for the Big Green.
Strength & Conditioning: Alisa Stepchuk ’23
Alisa has been determined since day one to get to the fitness Center and make strides each day of staying on track with her fitness program. She has shown hard work and resilience, asking for pointers and suggestions in her exercises as well has always staying positive no matter how her day is going!
Boys Water Polo: Hugh McCabe ’23
Hugh McCabe ’23, a new senior giving water polo a go, has demonstrated full commitment in the way he practices with his new teammate and learns the sport. He also devotes extra time on his own to develop his ball skills and game awareness. His enthusiasm also inspires the younger players around him to play and practice with spirit.
JV A Boys’ Soccer: Matt Dillon ’23
As a returning senior on the team, Matt has been a welcoming figure for the many new members of JV A soccer. Matt gives it his all for any drill that we try, and he is eager to help the team with the little things like picking up equipment after practice. His positive leadership will be a great north star for the team as we start facing other schools next week.
Varsity Volleyball: Wuyee Ke ’26
The door of the week for varsity volleyball is Wuyee Ke. As a ninth grader, it can be intimidating to join a team as experienced as varsity volleyball. Wuyee has already settled comfortably into the team dynamic. She is always one of the first players to practice and the last to leave. Her dedication to her own performance is clear, and her drive to make the team better is unwavering.
Girls Varsity Soccer: Tenley Elvekrog ‘23
This week’s Door of the Week for the girls varsity soccer team is Tenley Elvekrog. Tenley has been an active listener and consistently made contributions to team talks and practices. She brings a maturity and focus to all group activities and brings up the level of those around her!
