Doors of the Week

Congratulations to this week’s Doors of the Week!

Theatre: Lottie Levine ’25
Lottie is demonstrating her customary laser-sharp focus throughout this rehearsal process. As the Narrator of the Spring production, Stuart Little, Lottie’s responsibility is to link all the scenes together, and because the show moves swiftly, this is a challenging job. Calm, disciplined and thoroughly dependable, Lottie pulls everything together and the rest of the ensemble rely on her. She is not only a solution finder, but she offers her ideas with positivity and warmth. She is undoubtedly the keystone actor in this production. Brava Lottie.

Boys JV Tennis: Isaac Shobola ’27
The DOTW for boys JV tennis this week is Isaac Shobola. Isaac has played in the #1 slot for the last few matches and has done a great job for us. He brings a great attitude and work ethic to every practice and match and sets a good example for the team.

Girls Varsity Water Polo: Annabelle Martin ’24
Playing in the goal in any sport demands courage and resilience, and Annabelle Martin ’24 has demonstrated those qualities day in and day out. A steady shot blocker and skilled passer, she plays key roles on the team’s defense and in initiating the counterattack.  She’s has contributed mightily to the bonds of trust successful teams build together.

Boys JV Lacrosse: Griffin Mariani ’26
Griffin Mariani ’26 has been putting the ball in the net for the Boys JV Lacrosse Team for the past few games. In two consecutive games over the past week, he scored 5 goals in each game, to pace the team as it’s top scorer. A former midfield player last year, he moved to attack this year and found a home on the right side of the cage. Griffin has become a nightmare for opposing goaltenders with his deadly accurate left-handed shot. Congratulations to Griffin, keep on shooting!!

Boys Varsity Tennis: Blix Salz ’24
Blix Salz is the boys varsity tennis DOTW. Blix played varsity tennis during his first two years at DA,  decided to run track and field in his junior year, but returned for his senior season. Blix made his debut back into the lineup against NMH on 4/24, not losing a game in either his doubles or singles matches. He has also been undefeated in all of his exhibition matches so far.

Varsity Baseball: Sawyer Ramey ’24
Sawyer has been a leader on and off the field for us this spring. His work ethic is second to none. Sawyer has been a defensive stand out for us at 3rd base and most recently had three hits in our 13-3 win vs Choate.

Varsity Softball: Lexi Rohan ’25
The Door of the week for softball is Lexi Rohan. Although this is Lexi’s first year playing softball, she continues to improve and had a batting average of .750 this week! Lexi also had an excellent defensive game making five plays at first base to help keep the team in the game.

Girls Track & Field: Adeeva Alli ’25 and Vivian Monopoli ’26
This week Track and Field has two doors of the week, both from the throwers division. Adeeva has been throwing since she started her track and field career. However, this year she was asked to compete in all three throwing events at New Englands. This can be a daunting task, but this athlete took it in stride and showed great leadership by giving each event her all at the recent mock meet. Vivian has just started throwing, but what makes her unique is that she came to track and field as a distance runner. She has leaned into discus and is giving it her all. We are excited to see her continue to grow as the season continues. Because of their strength, positive attitudes, and kind spirits, we are proud to have Adeeva Alli and Vivian Monopoli as our doors of the week.

Ultimate: Hazel Secker ’26
The Ultimate Door of the Week is Hazel Secker.  Hazel brings discipline and athleticism to the sport, along with comradery and a good dose of fun.  Hazel is not new to Ultimate, so they arrived with good foundational skills, but they have worked hard to build grow those skills every day, rain or shine.  Hazel is an excellent mid-field player with the ability to sprint up the field and participate effectively in scoring plays.  Resilient, humble, and highly coachable, Hazel is a real asset to the team.

Go Big Green!
