Doors of the Week

Congratulations to this week’s Doors of the Week!

Girls Varsity Rowing: Ellie Maeda ’27
Ellie Maeda ’27 has been an exceptionally positive member of the girls’ rowing team this spring.  She brings great energy to each practice and has made impressive progress since the start of the season, her first in the sport!  Thank you for all that you do for the team, Ellie!

Boys Varsity Tennis: Christian Capella ’25
Boys varsity tennis DOTW goes to Christian Capella. With little competitive tennis experience, Christian has come into the season soaking up every bit of knowledge that he can and working hard to improve every shot and hone his match sense. He has stepped into the lineup when needed and competed really well against very tough opponents, not to mention winning at #6 singles against Choate, Westminster, NMH, Belmont Hill and losing only one of his exhibition singles matches.

Girls Varsity Water Polo: Sophia Gao ’26
Swift and tireless, Sophia Gao ’26 contributes immensely to the team’s success at both ends of the pool.  Her speed allows her to stretch the opponent’s defense and to transition quickly toward players threatening her team’s goal. Now in her second year as a vital starter, she improves her game awareness and her polo skills every day as a spirited, supportive teammate.

Varsity Softball: Anna Dyjach ’24
The DOTW for softball is Anna Dyjach. This week Anna hit .444 with an OBP of .727. Anna continues to lead the team as a captain and with her positive attitude and hard work.

Girls Varsity Track & Field: Alex Hermsdorf ’25, Zariah Hargrove ’27, Campbell Fealy ’24, and Kaelin Creagh ’24
These athletes have been non-stop. To start, their 4×100 relay team has broken the Deerfield record, the NEPSTA league record, and the Penn Relays Independent School Prep Heat record. Beyond their incredible teamwork and athletic prowess, these athletes have gone above and beyond for the team. They are willing to push themselves to try new events and cheer on their teammates in different events. We are so proud of their accomplishments, but we are most proud of the positive attitudes, perseverance, and team spirit. This week’s doors of the week for the Girls’ Track and Field team are Alex Hermsdorf, Zariah Hargrove, Campbell Fealy, and Kaelin Creagh.

Boys JV Lacrosse: Marko Wuchenich ’26
Boys JV Lacrosse nominates Marko Wuchenich ’26 as their DOTW. Marko is a team leader who plays on offense, defense, EMO and man-down. He gives 110% every time he steps on the field and is always helping his teammates to make them better. An unselfish tireless player, Marko responds to a challenge and can take control of a game. Congratulations to Marko as the DOTW.

Varsity Baseball: Barrett Adams ’27
Barrett has been a tremendous teammate and a team first guy all year. He comes to practice everyday with a great attitude and work ethic – his skills offensively and defensively are developing at a rapid rate!

Boys JV Tennis: Jack Webb ’27
Jack Webb is the DOTW for boys JV tennis. Jack has played in the 3 spot for most of the season and has won several matches for us. He has improved significantly over the course of the season and has been a great teammate.

Ultimate: Jean Lukas Meza ’26
Jean Lukas Meza for his determination and his leadership of the team in spirit. Jean is always the one to start the cheer or encourage the team in that way and we think that’s an important part of his role and of being a DOTW.

Girls Varsity Lacrosse: Harlowe Healey ’24, Lalwani Surpitski ’26, Kate Doucette ’27, and Eloise Hotchberg ’27
Harlowe: Harlowe has been a force all season long and was a huge catalyst in the second half against KUA Wednesday in all facets of the game.  Whether it was winning draw controls, caused turnovers, assists, or putting the ball in the back of the net, Harlowe elevated her play and the play of her teammates with her effort and determination.
Lalwani: Lalwani had a beautiful assist against KUA that motivated and inspired her teammates and coaches.  Lalwani consistently executes a positive attitude and growth mindset, which shows in her play.
Kate: Kate had a strong presence in the second half in net against KUA Wednesday, with some key saves that infused energy into the team.
Eloise: Eloise played really strong defense against KUA, and showed a lot of poise and confidence in the clear.  She is a great connector on the team with her communication and support of her teammates.

Go Big Green!
