Congratulations to this week’s Doors of the Week!
Girls Varsity Hockey: Kaley MacDonald ‘23
Kaley MacDonald gets the Girls’ Varsity Hockey Door of the Week for her strong play all season and her stand out performance against Winchendon. Kaley has lead the offensive charge in many of our games with her heavy shot from the blue line and her poise with the puck. She did a great job of directing the game against Winch in both zones, and has been a leader on the blue line all season. Kaley has done an excellent job of leading by example and has been a huge asset to our team this year. We’re excited to see what she does with the rest of our season and appreciate all she does to make our team successful!
JV Swim & Dive: Miu Yatsuka ‘24
Miu has been a stellar swimmer for the JV Swim team this season. Her speed and flexibility have made her integral to every meet; she often takes home at least one first place finish and is a key contributor in our relays. Today in our meet against NMH, Miu won the 100 yard Butterfly and also swam in our winning 200 yard Freestyle relay. Miu has been working hard at every practice; we ask her to swim more yardage and in shorter intervals than the other swimmers on the team, and she does so without question or complaint. Not to mention, she’s an avid cheerleader for her teammates, often keeping the morale up on the pool deck during meets. We’re lucky to have her!
JV Swim & Dive: Ellie Nam ‘25
Ellie is a quiet but critical member of the JV swim team this season. She’s the definition of a team player; despite us often asking her to swim challenging events, she shows up to every practice and meet ready to give it her all. Today in our meet against NMH, Ellie fearlessly swam the 100 yard Butterfly, despite it being a new event for her, and had a stellar race! She was also part of the winning 200 yard Freestyle relay. Ellie has been putting in hard work at every practice and can often be seen giggling with her lane-mates in between sets. We’re so excited to watch her continue to grow on the team!
Girls Varsity Basketball: McKenzie Goltermann ‘25
Girls Varsity Basketball’s Door of the Week is McKenzie Goltermann ‘25. Since the start of the season, McKenzie has shown her dedication to growing as a player and supporting her teammates in every practice and game. While an injury kept her out in the early weeks of the season, McKenzie worked hard to regain her strength and has been a key contributor since her return. It’s been wonderful to witness her development over the past few months, and we are looking forward to seeing McKenzie continue to shine during the last month of the season!
Boys JV Squash: Lucas Zheng ‘23
Lucas bounced back after some illness and defeats in challenge matches. At Eaglebrook, he overcame a 0-2 deficit and won 3-2 by making really smart adjustments. His leadership as a senior has been good too. I’m excited for him to finish up strong in these final few weeks.
Theater: Theo Schulhof ‘25 & Songa Rwamucyo ‘23
Both of these young actors demonstrate similar skill sets. Equally dedicated, energized, instinctual and highly focused, they bring absolute commitment to every rehearsal and their professionalism and rehearsal etiquette is exceptional. Even though this is Songa’s first production, he looks like he has been performing for years, and he brings with him an easy going and fun-loving vibe. Similarly creative, supportive and collaborative, Theo is a thoughtful actor who is constantly thinking of ways to hone his performance. We appreciate their many contributions to the Winter production, “Fools, A Comic Fable”, and thank them for the endless respect they show towards their fellow ensemble members and the creative team. Bravo Theo and Songa!
